    I put EL15, because I have NFI what it means!

    Well Threbo is not just a winter destination. I had my first trip this year a couple of weeks ago

    It was like this

    And just spent another couple of days with K10 and jnr10

    Then bit of TVT today

    Thredbo has me stoked for a fair chunk of the year, can't wait to get skiing again, but in the meantime, those tracks are awesome fun.

    And 7 days on my 365 already! Man if you had more free time than me, or were local, that pass is frikken gold.

    Was there an early bird special on the 365 pass? How much did it set you back?

    $799, paid deposit in October, balance by end of May, or when you start using it.

    Ron was there today, getting the ski tune ready, the vibe is good. All the portents are appearing, I think its safe to say they will be digging the lifts out this season.

    It's all about the vibe. And fantasy. That's important.

    Cool, missed you last season, I have a possible Mon-Thursday each week for Jun-Aug, so let us know, and we can come up with something crazy to do with a blind guy! Might need multiple vests I reckon!

    Maybe with it getting busier and busier over the summer months they will be able to afford to lower our season ticket prices as they are not a 4 month destination...... :cheers:ROFL:deadhorse:

    Somewhere around ST midway down. It's a tad confusing with no snow!
    Maybe top of Little Beauty?
