You think you had it bad...

Well you guys were all pretty worried at the beginning of last season when the snow wasn't quite up to scratch. Have a look at opening day back in Australia.

Looks like a great mountain for one of those snowboards with wheels... and a frame... and a pedals. Oh wait, that's a bike.

See why we all go to Japan?

Winter solstice is not till june 21.
Opening a ski resort before the real start of winter is never a good idea lol

That's about the same amount of snow that Seymour had at the start of last December.
