disski, I would love to read it - could you try once more?
I know about the Anton´s T-bar and I could once correct the info which had appeared in a magazine article saying that it´s named after Tony (who has never been Anton, officially Antonin but in Australia always Tony, asaik)
BTW, have you read Sponar´s Snow in Australia? That´s news to me (ISBN 0 9590841 6 9)?
I would consider it a must for a man like you.
I was happy to be able to take Tony to the places he loved in the Alps (St. Anton and Kitzbuhel) in September 1999 - his last trip there.
We had an unplanned but great welcome in Kitz, where he won the first slalom after WW II in 1946.
I only regret he doesn´t have his name on one of the gondolas because - the organizers say - there are no official results preserved from that year.
Maybe with some more lobbying... had he been a local hero, I´m sure he would be there with no problems.
BTW, you know the former Thredbo coach and pro-racer Milan Stevens?
