Going to thredbo this year... done it all my life, very expensive though
thredbo or perisher in my opinion!
perisher is big and open from my experiences (couple of years there), has more shit more stuff more everything
Thredbo is smaller, more tight with more trees, its heaps homely to me, where i grew up snowboarding, love going to it every year (- the $$$ and the crowds) --> thredbo i like more
going to japan when i finish school, then hittin EURO up for late season there (hopefully $$ )
ANyone done Western Canada and Japan? How do they compare?
as someone from the BC interior, and has had the pleasure of riding the infamous 'japow' i can compare the two
hands down, western canada.
while japan consistently gets massive snowfalls, so does the west. japan is bananas as a whole country, travel experience, but the snow, terrain, people and overall experience of canada trumps japan, no problem.
I did a few years of boarding in Ontario Canada, then a couple of years ago I came back to sydney, en route I stopped off in NZ queenstown & wanaka for few weeks.
Last year was terrible I only went snowboarding 4 days in the whole year, I feel so bad like I've neglected my responsibilities . I can't let that happen again... I've got at least one 5 day trip to perisher planned right now. I need to try and find more people to sort other trips with.
I'll probably hit B.C. this northern-hemisphere winter too, to make up for last years losses.
I can't believe I'm stuck so far away from a ski-hill here.
can't wait for the snow again, got back from whistler in feb, and everyday since I've been thinking of the snow . will be down perisher on the july 22nd weekend, and will be between thredbo and persiher 2nd august-5th. and hopefully another week sometime in-between. So if anyone interested on meeting up for a shred let me know .
