    Default I cracked....

    and brought myself and the +1 an epic season pass for 2016 perisher and usa epic resorts in 16/17. Price was just too tempting to pass up.

    I guess that means we are skiing in north america in 2017!
    Winter is here!

    And that is exactly why Vail bought Perisher, their plan is working.

    A Japanese resort should look at buying Thredbo, Hotham or Buller to counter this.

    If Cham buys Thredbo I will swap resorts in a heartbeat

    I know. I know. I saw right thru their cunning plan but it still lured me in! So.... given I haven't skied much in the US compared to Japan or Canada it wasn't too hard of a decision, especially at the price. I foresee a Colorado Road trip with the +1 will probably be in order come Feb 2017!
