    Arrive 6th and leave 13th. Bugger, such a short trip this year, but it all counts. But was in Japan earlier on this year and heading back in Feb 09. But im heading back to Thredbo this August for a friend's wedding(eloping sort of) on the top of the mountain. A skier and snowboarder who met at Thredbo 3 years ago, I love their style.....

    Check the weather site, everyone is saying about 1m in the next 3 days. If we have 35 days untill we go down they are going to have to increase the height of the chair lift towers to take us up the mountain.

    I've got a feeling you think you may have been talking to my brother "Skipig",i'm the the younger one,not that you can tell.
    I was talking to my brother about a night we came out of the bistro.We had had a great day skiing and deceided to have a drink or ten. As we were leaving the bistro two guys said too us we didn't know night skiing was on tonight, we said its not its past 10 o'clock and we have too take these boots off at some stage.

    "wether underground", gives you an animated version of what is coming. I have been able to see when the falls are coming on my own screen without having to predict.Helps me sleep.
