wow... thanks for the info guys. We're actually set to go to hotham @ aus but i'm leaning towards going to NZ instead (the extreme skier thing from chillinnvan looks super awesome). I've actually been to the south island in summer and it was absolutely gorgeous. Did my first tandem skydiving in queenstown. Loved it! We haven't booked anything yet so...
For hotham, we were planning to stay at Eiger Ski Club. Looks pretty awesome. Hotham - Snow Accommodation - Lodges - Eiger Ski Club
. Also google their main page for those interested. it looks pretty good.
We were planning to go end aug cos that's when my project ends and i can finally take a break
Is it too late to go then? Would the snow be better in NZ or australia?
