So what are the rules / parameters / whys and wherefors?
NSW @ 2228m.
oi - this has excellent potential for high quality and silliness both!
shirts off or on?
The Ramshead L, with The Spur centre and Golden Gully on R, LBC
Stilwell Restaurant ruins
NSW, of course
Not sure if a pic of you with your bra off is going to win tw! And cut that hair you bloody hippy!
Well based on TWs post its shirts off.
I think Muzz is going to be blogging for aussieskier this winter
Sweet, I am planning on introducing him to the joys of snow camping this season. I have also said I will buy a kite…I may die.
Yeah he mentioned the kite!
Stillwell is my favourite restaurant.
Rather one sided atm!
I'm thinking Victoria needs to hit big with some decent shirts off to make a comeback at this stage.
OK some Vic:
No mountain in Australia looks better than Feathertop.
Its the only thing that even has a hint of Alaska.
Cue Snowblowey. Western faces MR.
I wrote it in my TR - a trip to Feathertop requires a pretty full complement of mountain skills that you would need to ski many non-glaciated peaks OS.
Hopefully i'll be down in September and hopefully there will be snow.
edit: hopefully my knees are up for it.
Can't see any shirts @CarveMan. Not quite what I had in mind though.
Great idea for a thread, getting excited for this season! Some of mine from the past few years...
Our very own Snow Blowey (when he used to ski)
My first ever day out, thanks to Brian Wilson for taking on an unkown punter from the forums
the one under my skis at the time will do
Whoa Pini, first day out was with the machine?!
Punter, haha, Pini reads and rides the terrain like poetry.
Before you NSWelshmen get carried away, let's not forget these gems for remoteness...
Crosscut thanks to Jono

I was out there yesterday and the water temp is most pleasant.
Ha ha I got some beautiful nsw pics but this is as trolly as I get! Tassie would whip us all. Haven't seen much of northern Kosciusko No maybe this year. God dam autocorrect
From this thread

Aren't they lines in white rather than white lines, sniff and hoover.
NSW and Vic!

gotta ski nelse north one day, reckon it would be sweet down in there
Yeah, looking over Cootapatamba towards the BHP. Need to get the map out but it may be the Fainters or even F/top on the right (or both).

Loved the first decent of Mt Victoria. Classic.
