    courtesy is good, difficult to maintain in a law-of-the-jungle scenario like a lift queue
    Perisher is doing a poor job of having staff at the busy lifts to make sure people form groups of four
    at one point today, there were three lift staff at the Freedom chair, no one sorting out the punters
    at another time there was a person - she did a great job, so clearly that's what is needed

    Everyone just shuffle forward and get your arse on a chair. You will see your beloved when you get off the chair at the top.

    This should be posted at the entrance to EVERY lift line.

    How much better would the day will flow??

    If you snowboard/maccas tray/splitboard/whatever don't try keeping up with someone that can actually ski.

    You can't.

    Last year. Someone pinched my poles. They were hire poles from rhythm, so the only reason I can think they were pinched was due to losing/breaking the ones they hired and so just took similar looking ones when they left.

    Anyway, from that experience and now owning my own gear I have a small cable lock. It might be over kill, but it least prevent someone accidentally taking my gear at a minimum.

    After losing racked poles on two occasions, mine now have stripes of fluro electrical tape. Ugly as sin but hard to mistake.

    A certain idiot in a certain video from last year needs to read this thread. Sadly that won't happen as he clearly lacked the intelligence to be a member of this forum. Those who saw the video will know who I'm referring to.

    Do....retire your babies from the slopes just 30-40 mins before you reckon they are fully done for the day... and have sweets ready. This will avoid many extreme parent and kid meltdowns.

    That guy was sure braves to put up footage of himself cleaning up a 4 year old.

    Not that I've ever cleaned up a 4 year old, but if I did and planned on putting up footage of my radness on social media I reckon I'd edit out the carnage

    At least he paused his metal music and checked to see if the poor kid was okay. It only takes one bad apple to give everyone else a bad name.

    Stop being so passive aggressive in lift lines. Instead of silently inching forward to protect your merge just ask the other people if they mind if you merging in next.
