    I always go right to left, but that's based on the location of my accomodation.

    On a fresh snow day I think left to right offers the better skiing, just because that side of the mountain offers longer sustained pitches of ungroomed snow.

    Any new snow is gratefully accepted

    Ahhh, but right to left gives better chance of fresh tracks!

    Im a rightie, I like when I meet the lefties in the middle and we swap stories.

    I so rarely start on the left I wouldn't know but starting left does seem to have a bigger lift line (and more terrain).

    I have my new snow day routine, which I like. It gives me at least a handful of untracked to near untracked runs to start a day. After that I'm usually blissed out and couldn't care too much one way or another what happens the rest of the day.

    I do like the banter when a leftie starts rightie, or viceversa.

    Left to right, unless dropping pet humans at Friday Flat. In which case it doesn't matter because everything's been poached.

    If the winds blowing no matter where it starts it tends to finish in the middle.

    It all depends on the day and who's on the mountain.

    If it's a standard day no freshies to be had then it's Crackers chair and Supertrail top to bottom to dial in the legs. If there's freshies to be had then it's a choice depending on wind etc but 9 times out of 10 it's lookers left first.
