anyone here been to thredbo this season?
if so, how was it overall?
is there pipe?
whats the park like?
and is there any good backcountryish places you know of where i could build a kicker?
yeah man have spent 8 days there already this season, they have just spent 5 grand on rails and boxes etc. they have cut the pipe, it is really good because there is no lift up there so there are never newbies.
If you go straight up to karrols, its the highest lifted point in oz, when the t-bar goes left go straight to the cornice that is about 200 meters in front of you, we have carved a hugebooter into it, it has become a good jump as more people go there.
Also there is the golf course bowl, follow the signs to get there.
Hit the bluff on the left of the kosziosko express, it has a awesome natural hit that is good every year, if you hit it in the morning you will get some nice freshies too.
The good powder runs are under the snow gums chair in the trees.
For a super sick drop head to michaels mistake at sponars t-bar, its a real big drop on a good day, bad day its super icy.
Head up to the shop called chillfactor thredbo, its above the bistro, its owned and run by the edito of chillfactor magazine, reggae ellis, he will point you in the diection of what is sick at thredbo at the time.
The pipe and park will be at merrits, on the right of merrits is STANLEYS. Some of the best pow around, world standard stuff but ski patrol go nuts if you go there bcause its got some dodgy stuff, dont go there alone or with someone who has never been because skiing in gumtrees when you dont know where the fuck you are going is really hard. You can go there if you take a right when you are at the pipe.
Hope that covers it, You really want to head down when the sprite snowboard sessions are on because they build some really nice big jumps.
If there anymore questions just message me.
unless you ar going to watch the x-games never, ever, ever go to perisher blue, its terrible, everything about it is wrong except for the pipe.
shit dude, i didbnt expect that much
im going the weekend after this one, so i will let u know how it goes
thanx a lot dude
yeah ive spent the last two seasons there, went to boarding school at the snow, you ski 5 out of 7 days a week for 10 weeks, its the shit.
