  1. I went for a surf the other day. It was really nice. About 4-6 foot. Sunny. Offshore. Only problem was the 6 other guys on the peak. I paddled out and asked, really politely mind you, if they could please go in because I hadn't had a good, uncrowded session for so long. Can you believe they ignored me and dropped in on me the whole session? Selfish bastards!
  2. Why don't you take your sleeping bag up the hill and stay in the hut on the Summit. Free accom. Great view. Fresh tracks. Might get a little chilly and admittedly a little short on amenities I 'spose.
  3. Looking at the webcams and snow forecast my new plans for 2010/2011 season are to purchase some grass skis and take the hill apart!
  4. Righto. Who's prepared to make a big call? ( I'm probably relying on the more statistically minded amongst you ) In all of winter , which week of which month is the historically the snowiest?
  5. Flown Air Asia quite a few times. Not too bad and good prices for sports equipment and excess luggage. Sale starts on their website tomorrow. Only runs for 3 days though. To the cynics, don't worry about it, pay your extra $1500 ignorance tax if you like.
  6. Just a heads up. AirAsia is launching flights from KL to Haneda. $37 each way! Just did the sums for a return flight to Tokyo from Perth including boards and baggage - $500. Check it out.
  7. So it appears white short sleeved shirts and black pants are all the rage for the gents this season. A fair call?
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the first week of March is looking pretty sweet. Cold and plenty of white.
  9. If you ski deep powder ( as defined by Go Native ) , with no shirt on, is one to be described as "Going topless through the bottomless' ?
  10. Right. My two yen worth. This carry on about super rowdy nightlife is an exaggeration. Not sure how limited the experiences of some people have been but I love a good night out and the only time I would classify as 'rowdy' was Australia Day. You want rowdy - take yourself to Canada or Europe. Pet peeve - seasonal workers who think they are hot sh*t. But you get this at any ski resort. Snow - Sensational and plentiful but gets tracked out quickly. Locals - Fantastic, friendly. Always stay at a pension. Why so popular - close as you'll ever get to GUARANTEED quality sn
  11. I tend to get excited about apres ski by about 4pm and if I don't have an Asahi / Sapporo / Yebisu in hand by about 5 start getting very edgy. Therefore, approx 7 hrs.
