    Hi Adam, sounds like a good idea. Have been thinking I'd like to do one of these for many years (esp as I ski in NZ now and then).

    Just a query, playing my Vic card here (for a change). Why are there so few courses & choice of dates) at Hotham Compared to NSW? It sort of limits our (my) chances to attend.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Snowgum.

    @snowgum we are a NSW based company and head down on or around that weekend every year. We can do more courses in VIC but the cost to put them on are excessive due to us not doing business there full time. If you could organise enough people we can put on a course to suit you. would need 16 bookings.

    PM me if you want to chat

    Cheers
