    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
