That's a powder day in Australia. We buy Yes 420's for that kind of snow
For me it really came down to wanting to do either Perisher+Falls, or Thredbo+Buller. I've essentially ruled out international tickets at this stage, and will deal with it if they pop up.What's the best season pass from those in the know, Epic or Ikon?
Any pro's or con's to look out for - I'm going to make more effort to hit Aus season this year so I assume 5 days riding will pay for an Epic/Ikon pass knowing the day rates from last season.
Pretty sure the Ikon Pass which covers NZ was around $1000 last season.Mani..., what's a season pass in $NZ???
That's like a 2 day ticket at Thredbo/Perisher.Nice! Ikon covers the Queenstown resorts (they already have combined ticketing) and Mt Hutt.
My early bird season pass for Turoa and Whakapapa cost $299 with a free youth season pass. To be fully transparent I only bought a weekday pass because the weekends are crazy here and my kids have football. The full early bird season pass was around $500 with a free youth pass.
We're going to hit Queenstown and Wanaka the week after the July school holidays 👍👍
It's around starting $Au1000+ a night to stay on the mountain in Thredbo for an apartment.Criminal I know, I've budgeted $5k for 5 days at One of the resorts including airfares, accommodation, meals and transfers and I've already bought the epic pass. It's BS and they wonder why we go Japow every year.
The Aus snow industry really needs to get together and be innovative in both pricing and offerings to rejuvenate our ski season and stop taking the piss.
Yeah, that's why I'm looking at Falls Creek as the Alpine Resort is a bit cheaper.It's around starting $Au1000+ a night to stay on the mountain in Thredbo for an apartment.
How do you get there from NT?Yeah, that's why I'm looking at Falls Creek as the Alpine Resort is a bit cheaper.
I remember staying at Stables on the mountain at Perisher a few years ago and was going to stay there but when I looked at prices last night it was closer to $2k a night.
