Last time I was up in Falls Creek I scored a concussion. Aha, been a little put off since then. Still, wouldn't mind heading back up there...

 

Might be a dumb question, but what would be an estimate price for accommodation and snow passes for a week or so? Don't need to stay anywhere fancy.

Dave I've been looking around and Escape Travel have a Jindabyne package leaving from Sydney or Canberra for 6 nights for $550. Ski pass, place to stay, 3 breakies included, party sat night. Fairly keen.

 

Also check out Sierra Snowboards, got some epic prices. I put together a package with a board, two jackets, two pants, thermo leggins, thermo top, goggles, two pairs of gloves, boots, bindings, two pairs of socks and stomp pad for under $1k USD. Free post for orders > $500 USD. Seriously considering going on that 6 night trip, damn keen to learn to board.

Living it up in Whistler at the moment. I'm riding bikes though - will definitely be hanging around for the snow (the glacier is open until August here though, but that just has "bad idea" written all over it LOL).

sierra a good, but there are a few brands such a burton etc which have issues being sent international (as to protect their local brand in that country)

 

it can be overcome however, you just need to use a forwarder like bongo us.

 

for the record i have used sierra before, good to deal with and very quick.

Trying to get a group of mates to go to Falls but prob too late to book anything decent. If I don't end up going I'll try go to Japan or Canada at the end of the year.
