Big (australian standards),
vertical drop, tame mountain
from my one week at PB i could tell that it was a very family friendly resort. The ski school setup was world class and there is plenty of terrain for the parents to hide in.
The mountain seemed very tame with no real runs for advanced skiers and boarders.Like all Australian mountains the vertical drop is small.
but PB is one of the best Australian resorts to ski at so you don't go mentally insane waiting for the northern hemisphere winter.
P.S the bakery in the PB mall (next the the V8 chair) has really good pies :D
