I am an aussie boarder and have spent the last 3 weekends at Hotham on really good snow for this early in the season. Hotham is my favourite resort in Vic and has some good steep runs (for Oz) and nice off piste areas. Heading off again this weekend too. I have the Hero pass so am making the most of it. I hope to go nearly every weekend until I head off to NZ 25th August.
I love Treble Cone in NZ and stay in Wanaka as I prefer it to Queenstown. I also go to Cardrona for a day for a change of scenery. When I am feeling rich, which is not very often, I like to heliboard in Mt Aspiring National Park as its the cheapest heliboarding you are likely to get anywhere.
I also go to Niseko Japan every Jan/Feb and have to say it is my favourite place in the world for snowboarding thanks to the awesome powder. To put this comment in perspective I have snowboarded in Canada, France and Austria too. Niseko is the best!!
Lets hope the season carries on as it has started. I hate it when it fizzles out too early!
