    She did great. Was a huge day Sat. I'm stoked b/c as my mates start to get too old/fat/disengaged for this kind of stuff, her enthusiasm is boundless.

    Really lovely edit @Boodwah.
    What does the boodette use as bindings? My youngest is keen to come out next season.

    Fantastic vid. There aren't many better things than skiing with your own kids.

    I got some cheap & light Dynastar touring skis off the web when they were on sale when she was 8. I originally mounted them with Silvretta Pure Kidz touring bindings (which you'd be welcome to), but when she had feet big enough for tech-boots I mounted the cheapest tech touring bindings(Dynafit) I could find on them. Now she's grown out of her tech touring boots and wants to tele (smart girl, she can see its more free and more fun), so she's just using the baseplate under the toe with tech that came with the Scarpas until her birthday when I'll try and work out which tele bindings are best for a kid. She's not getting Meidjos.

    That was magical. I have always wanted to try some BC, and that may just tip me over the edge for next season.

    I got my two boys into the BC at 6 and they nag me to get out there :D
    Start them early if they are already in the outdoor environment a lot (and skiing well)

    Derricks not Dibbins as I said above. Handy little stove, plenty of fuel about. Good for drying out kids.

    oh the old stove(a flattish weird thing has gone)....The Nectres r good value....and set up in middle that has to be so effective..NSW eat your hearts out!!!
    and their hot enough to cook on.....with a kettle u can keep water boiling and have many cups of tea...

    but apart from creature comforts....the video is pleasing and also informing too...splendid piece of work Boodwah...must be good lying flat on back on the benches after one of your long days with daughter on the slopes...:thumbs:

    the user group is doing good job out there ..maybe next year we may check out Dibbins prior to winter too...

    We're lucky with our huts in Vic. Whilst I had a tent and planned on camping, I don't think I'd bother next spring. We saw two other people all weekend - a couple of bushwalkers heading to Dibbins. Amazing that nobody was skiing on the best corn day of the season!

    Great video @Boodwah :) Pardon my ignorance but as I'm still relatively new here compared to many others I did not realize that you did the original Hunt for White October video (love it too by the way). The yellow jacket and tele skis gave it away.

    @Boodwah as a father with a daughter I completely understand what that video is about.

    Special special times that will never be forgotten.

    Skiing is my religion. It was a vertical transmission from my folks, and a massive improvement on some of the other bizarre weirdo stuff out there. I am grateful, as I imagine she will be some day. Skiing is such a great family activity!
