Thought I'd update this now that I'm organised.

I learned to ski at Cardrona many years ago but I don't think we saw much of it. I remember getting in amongst moguls one day and we pretty much just stuck to the first lift after that. In those...

I'm planning 10 days or so in Park City next season so getting a glimpse of the hills has just fired me up a bit. Thanks

I can answer this one. America is simply at the fat, rich stage of its development as a society.

Hear me out. I'm only half serious but I think there is truth in this argument. The story goes...

I run a cattle station in Australia. You don't want to do that. I get 10 days or so every second or third year.

Just to make this post actually useful to you, I had mates who worked a season...

They can't do that without abandoning the entire belief system. They have a book and a belief. If one bit of the book is dodgy then they have to question the lot.

With your difficulty skiing then my experience may not be relevant but if you exagerated then you should pick it up quickly.

Thanks guys. I've been away for a couple of days. Had to go and watch the Bon Jovi concert in Brisbane. You are right that the beginners will probably want a day or two off but I'll be keen to...
