Final skiing mystery

So April 1st was actually Gaper Day, not Gaybor day... The event started decades ago as a way to show off old ski gear on April Fools' Day and since then has evolved into an all day party where locals dress in clothing poking fun at 'gapers' or tourists. Ahh, so that's what it was.
Woke this morning to couple of inches of new snow and a layer of fog. Temp was 18F but with wind chill factor feels like 6F (~ minus 14 C). So much for ...

... br> So wikipedia tells me Breckenridge is 2926m above sea level with the top elevatin of 3962m. The top of Mammoth is 3369m with the base at 2420m which is lower. The top of Mount Kosiuszko is 2228m but Jindabyne is only 918m and of couse Collaroy is 0m - on the beach!
Walked down to Breckenridge village tonight which was bigger than we first thought. Lots of touristy shops and bargain reduced ski gear - pity we have no spare luggage weight. Found some good restaurants ...
