Yep, been downhilling for ages & cross country occassionally. With good snow I prefer Hotham or Buller. May get into telemarking when I get bored of downhill.
Not skied this year, as snow is mandatory, and all my funds are going towards getting around Europe in August. Ironically I'll be in the Swiss & Austrian alps in their summer! Will probably hire an mtb & ride their though.
What's better singletrack through the trees or deep powder through the trees. I don't care I'll take either.
