Nice. It’s been ages since I was at TC, but it was a powder day and it was awesome.
Dunno man, I think Cardrona is the best resort for snowboarders! Wide open bowls for laying carves. It probably depends how you want to ride. We're spoilt down there for sure.Yeah it my first season in 20Yrs boarding in the southern lakes as a Treble Cone/Cardrona season pass holder (was always NZski-Coro/remarks)... and just after 2 days I'm so stoked I changed ..you don't have to go hiking to find epic terrain its everywhere I'm going need 10+ days just to get my head around the fields terrain options ... and as TC doesn't have much easy terrain pretty much everyone out on the field knows what they are doing >>not to many newbies standing in stupid places like NZSki...
If I was taking out a confident international snowboarder for his first taste of NZ ... it would be TC everyday of the week
I've refunded a heap of trips now, and most likely will apply for a Epic refund too at this stage.I may end up applying for a refund on my epic pass.
Vail Resorts in Australia are facing an epic refund bill if the greater Sydney area lockdown hits 30 consecutive days, which seems inevitablesnowaction.com.au
Now that they have extended the Sydney lockdown to the end of the month it means I only have one potential trip at the end of August as I have missed my June and July trips and can no longer do my September trip anyway.
I've used mine 2 days so at least I can get a 71% refund and one of those days was a 15cm dump!I've refunded a heap of trips now, and most likely will apply for a Epic refund too at this stage.
Kind of bummed that it basically cost $400 when I went for 3 days on opening week to ride front valley... but at least I had a few days out I guess
How far does the Gondola go up to.Some photos from yesterday at Whakapapa on Mt Ruapehu. Not much snow, but the Rangatira Express was open so at least we didn't have to stay at Happy Valley (beginner area) all day.

We are heading down next Friday.I can still get down by avoiding Sydney but have to take the long way around through Bathurst, extra 170km. Absolutely ridiculous that you can not drive through Sydney via the motorways without stopping. Do they think Covid fly's around in the air on the M7 waiting to get sucked into your A/C. We have zero Covid in our City but I guess being Vaccinated doesn't count for anything with Conservatives in NSW
It doesn't say that in the exemptions. However it is very convoluted. John Barilaro daughter just got fined $1k for driving from Queenbeyan into Sydney then out again to Canberra then home to Queenbeyan.
Fucking Bruz... he is a nasty piece of work who thinks rules and law are for other people to follow. The rotten apple doesn't fall far from the corrupt tree.It doesn't say that in the exemptions.

Yeah saw your post about circumnavigating Sydney and freaked. That's why I rang and confirmed with ServiceNSW.It doesn't say that in the exemptions. However it is very convoluted.
