    I was holdin' my skis up
    On an icy Kosciuszko Road
    When along came a Hilux
    With a snowboard and an empty load
    "If you're going to Front Valley, mate, with me you can ride"
    So I threw my skis in the back and I settled down inside
    He asked me if I'd seen a hill with so much manmade snow on hand

    I said,
    "Listen, I've ridden every resort in the land"

    I've skied everywhere man,
    I've skied everywhere man,
    Ridden every chair, man,
    Breathed the mountain air, man
    Travel I've had my share man,
    I've skied everywhere.

    I've been to Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher Perisher

    Is this a serious thread? I've skied lots of places and hardly a fraction of what I want to. My experience tells me where next and occasionally advised someone else. I could not imagine it as a list for comparison. Seriously embarrassing- stop it.

    Imagine Heniz's two weeks heli-skiing every year out of Wanaka eases the pain :cool:

    Getting close. I remember when it was a dirt road to Hotham. That sounds really old right?

    The comment on Thredbo was a little flippant but essentially true. I went there sometime in the 80's in July with the intention of skiing but all I could see was green, so I didn't and the moment passed. These days it is just not on the radar at all.

    How many times can I type "Eyre Tbar, Double, Triple, Sun Valley, Leichhardt T-bar, Wentworth T-bar, the Quad" without it seeming repetitious. Oh....and Thredbo, a few years ago! :)

    What do you mean? Many fixed grip lifts in USA have no safety bars.

    A guy at my work just got back from Hukuba (yeah he cut that fine with being able to ski)

    And he was all "I don't think i will go back - Japanese are seriously lacking in infrastructure.... I mean they don't even have a safety bar! American and euorpe are just leaps and bounds ahead of them!"
