chicski: That sucks, I always wear a helmet and have for many years. Mine was just an unfortunate accident, the other party was very apologetic, and took my phone number from my daughter (who got a skidoo ride :D) and rang me in hospital. But I still maintain it was just plain on bad luck. Was the first run of the day too!
And the last one :p

Deanski: Yeah I am never without mine now and the poor daughter now spends way too much time looking behind her as she is skiing and pulling over waiting for people to go past before she takes of now..it spooked her.
I always look over my shoulder now and move very carefully through lift queues. I was spooked for the first couple of years and spent more time off the runs.

Similar story here with regard to out of control border behind me, but I escaped by doing a massive GS to get out of his way below him. Really starting to think that like Scuba Diving, you must get a qualification ticket/licence before doing any serious skiing in open runs outside beginner areas. Sounds harsh, but as many of us who have been skiing for decades, have decided to wear helmets purely from saving oneself from OTHERS.

Deanski: First year we decided to buy helmets trying to be good role models for the daughter was about 4 years ago. First day of our 7 day holiday at Perisher we went to Blue Cow as we had purchased the first tracks tickets to see what it was all about. First run of the first day of our hols, cruised down the first section of the run (I think its excellerator) and then down to the section you can see on the perisher webcams under the ridge chair and the wife and daughter popped on ahead while I went to the right of the hill to get a nice fresh run with a bit of speed. Two turns and some f&*(ing out of control idiot comes flying down behind me at which time we were both probably doing around 60k's, he is unable to pull up, so he runs over the back of both my skis, locking my in position straight downhill, but also rams into me that hard it popped me out of both skis, and all I can remember is that sound of air escaping your lungs and I went flying off the piste and slid straight into a lightly snow covered rock which subsequently knocked me out (imagine what it would hav done without my new helmet??!!). I came to a minute later with the wife and daughter running up the hill screaming and I couldn't move my arm and was in agony almost vomiting. Shoulder had popped (not sure if it was the rock or the idiot that took me out from behind) and on thorugh scans back in Sydney he had broken it in four places. Being older, apparently the tendons are very strong the older you are, so rather than tear or stretch the tendons, they had actually held on to the shoulder socket and ripped the bone apart on the ball section. FIrst run!! I was in shcock so after calling the guy a few swear words I didnt bother taking details down when the blood bucket got there, but I should have. WE stayed for the duration so the girls could ski but he ruined my holiday. SHould have sued him for it. Suffice to say.....helmets are good :)

Mr. Mook: ditto. more worried about falling in front of a slider that can't avoid me and copping an edge to the head.

Slalom: I was similar. Have only worn a helmet the last 4 years. Far more concerned about potential damage from others than myself.

Fresh from the Perisher marketing dept:
Due to the amazing work of our snowmaking team and groomers, this past week we opened Blue Cow. The Early Starter Double Chair and the Terminal Quad Chair have been spinning and NOW the Summit Quad Chair is opening up snow-riders' number one fav run in Blue Cow - Zali's! But let's be real, we want more and we bet you do too! With cold weather rolling in, we are planning on opening Towers on Mount Perisher and Lower Rollercoaster in Blue Cow through the weekend. With up to 16 lifts and over 20 runs planned for the weekend, it's looking like a great start to the NSW school holidays! Look at the upcoming forecast there is more snow on the way - cool, huh? So, Perisher will be working hard to open more lifts and terrain for you to enjoy!

fmdc9: What have the waits at ridge and summit chairs been like?
Ridge hasn't owned for skiing yet this season - possibly tomorrow - but yesterday and today the Summit has been straight in, no waiting. Freezing fog and some small accumulation of rime in Perisher, occasional sago but no actual flakes. Very pleasant in Brunelli's right now - somewhat less so on the hill.

Zalis lasted a lot longer today so I think it will only get better with time. It's nice to have the force of gravity to help with the turns! I heard some frightening stories about waiting times at Happy valley today. One person told me they endured a 45min wait whilst on the next lift another punter told me their wait time was 1.5 Hrs. Whoah! One of my suggestions is that Perisher turn their Happy Valley cam a little to the left so people can get an idea of wait times. At the moment it is a gamble venturing that way as there is simply no alternative to getting back to Front valley. Perisher will be a much better resort in bad snow years once the new chairlift replaces the Leichardt T-bar.

Ridge chair is turning. Two groomers working on the summer road - from the Terminal chair down to Roller Coaster. Low cloud blowing through Blue Cow now making it moist and unpleasant. Zali's was ok earlier other than the usual issues

Snowy Joey: Will turn shitty late this arvo. Enjoy Normo, hope the backs feeling good.
Sitting at Steve's Eyre cafe having a coffee given the road is still open. Cloud building, cold and windy. Guns still firing on Mt P and 2 winch cats grooming.
