    Re: 2020 Australia season.

    With the announcement yesterday to allow day trippers to go to the ski resorts in Victoria I can see lifts opening much earlier than I first thought, the question is will they make snow for what will...

    Re: 2020 Australia season.

    I tend to agree, this looks like being a very good start to what could be a great season, not sure if any lifts will open before late July though.

    Re: 2020 Australia season.

    So far I have heard it will be much wetter and even colder than average, hopefully we will get some of the season in, even if it is just August and September.

    Re: 2020 Australia season.

    I am hoping for a really bad season if this virus is still around and we are forced into being shut, knowing my luck though it is sure to be one of the best ever.

    Re: Ask a boot fitter a question.

    This was a good idea I thought, Epic forum was purchased by Vail ski resorts and then shut down, it was a fantastic source of knowledge about boot fitting. There is a need for such a forum even...

    Re: Boot Question

    15mm Shell gap is the way to go at present, very few skiers can tolerate anything less, and for Alpine touring I have found closer to 20mm shell gap keeps the customer happy.

    Re: Charging For Boot Fitting?

    I am hearing bike shops now charge a fee for anyone wanting to try on bike shoes, I think this is due to so many getting bike shoes online once they know their shoe size.

    Re: Nokian tyres

    I am on to my second set of Nokian tyres, in my opinion they are worth every cent, having a second set of rims so they are only on for the winter months helps get more years out of them.

    Re: Resorts opening early!

    I love how Perisher always open that day earlier the Buller, a great friendly rivalry.
  12. Re: The Ghosts of Perisher - an insiders view with The Snowmakers

    The kind of people that will use the runs with this man made snow are the ones who spend money, they usually rent everything and buy a day ticket, compared to the guys who wait until the steeper...
  13. Re: The Ghosts of Perisher - an insiders view with The Snowmakers

    I see on the cams that Buller, Baw Baw and Lake mountain all have big piles of man made snow / ice from their snow factories, it is a pity that both Hotham or Falls Creek don't have a snow factory,...
  14. Re: BMW drivers to get VIP parking at Falls Creek

    In that case I agree with people being upset, at present those spots are for day parking, people with young kids and for those who make the effort to get up there early, now those people will have to...
  15. Re: BMW drivers to get VIP parking at Falls Creek

    This one is causing a bit of a discussion with some people saying they will boycott Falls Creek, I don't own a BMW these days so it will not give me free parking. I cant see anything wrong with...
  16. Re: The Ghosts of Perisher - an insiders view with The Snowmakers

    We may be relying on snowmaking for a ski at this years season opening by the sound of your long term forecast Pete.

    Re: Snow on the way!

    Yes it was good, I was up at Mount Wills for the weekend walking around in the fresh snow, we didnt get a lot at Wills but I could see Bogong and it appeared to have a good cover.

    Re: Sorel Boots - Where to buy in Australia

    Sorels are losing sales in a big way now to brands like Kimberfeel, just as good at a much lower price. Our best selling boot in recent years is the Beverly, has laces and a zip, your choice...

    Re: Aldi chains are not approved at Hotham

    For the winter of 2020 onwards all Victorian resorts will require snow chains to comply with the O norm 5117 standard, Aldi chains do not comply and neither do a lot of others, so if buying chains...

    Re: Just some of the new 2019 skis

    The obvious one is a K2 poacher, a good twin tip that performs well in the park and also as an all round ski. Rossignol would have an equivalent in the Smash 7 or the Scratch.
  23. Re: Thredbo Development Plans - New Merritts Mountain House Restaurant/Bar

    It looks good, they certainly needed a lot more seating up there, it was always hard to find a seat we found even in September. Now that Vail has such a strong hold on Aussie resorts the other two...
