I stayed in Campetello last season, really enjoyed it, best food on a mountain I have had as well
I can understand how that feels. I have a pair of Nordica Spitfire Dobermanns and they feel a lot lighter than the Voekls I used to ski on.
Responsiveness can also be an outcome of how the skis are tuned. I took my Nordicas over to Canada and skied 17 days on them. On the 15th day I got a core shot on them and had to get it repaired. Took the skis out the next morning and they felt totally different and really sluggish to respond. It turned out that the ski shop had a problem with their tuning machine that they hadn't realised when they tuned my skis. Will have to get them retuned in Thredbo.
I was talking to my nephews yesterday about stupid things you do and showed them this, I just happened to be down there for this, came 15th from memory
Were you one of the brothers of darkness? I love watching those things - nuts!!
nah, the winner was Steven Lee
The hardest part was the run half way back up the mountain after coming down the Olympic run
I used to love watching the Dash for Cash weekend (particularly the Jump for Cash).
The best skiing video from my childhood however was without doubt Apocalypse Snow. Now on youtube!
I'll be at Perisher last week of July school holidays. Staying at a mates place in Beridale with the Family. First time taking the rug rats skiing. I normally go to Kegbo but the free accom is too attractive.
Perisher here we come. Probably better to teach the kids anyway.
A friend of mine runs the place. Go like their Facebook page. They've been giving away a free session every so often.

I'm in Thredbo - Sat 5th to Sat 12th July.
@rugbyskier - will have to track you down.
@Gibbo - you'll probably triangulate me using Black-Ops cyber technology.
or I'll send you a tweet and ask where you are
Well that's way less James Bond.
Depending on whether there is any snow, I expect to get down as well
I have just booked a week in Cortina for over Christmas/New Years
30 years ago that meant sleeping in a mate's Cortina in the carpark or at Jindy.
Will be there the weekend of 5-6 July. Easy to track down, will be at Friday Flat coffee shop on the Saturday and Sunday mornings around 0830 and I'll be wearing a name tag on my uniform. I'm staying at my club's lodge - Waragun Lodge, in Mackenzie Place behind the Leisure Centre. Can PM you phone numbers, etc.
Not much skiing this weekend
A bit of natural snow up high and it has finally got cold enough to fire up the guns. Should be some skiing by the time I start work at the end of the month.
