I want to go to Val D'Isere but I doubt i'll go there as returning staff get first pick. I'd be happy at Meribel, courchevel or tignes. As long as theres lots of places to get drunk im happy!

What about you?

firstly what job you got, i think val is all taken with returning staff.
i fancy, a big chalet, tignes, les arc, courchevel or la plagne to be honest. but not really fussed just want to go now

Hey,

Im getting on at south mimms, where ru geting on? I've got soooo much shopping to do, Im going up to covent garden in the week to get a new board and boots and I know im just gonna end up buying loads of other random stuff. I'll be so poor when I get out there! I really want to start packing now but I reckon its a bit early, you'll notice me when I get on the coach....i'll be the one with about 5 suitcases! How much stuff are we allowed to take, I cant leave anything behind!
Im a chalet girl...what r u doing?

Pudders.....what job r u doing?

Hey Guys,

I've literally spent my whole day at work reading these posts and im getting so excited! I've been reading up on all the stuff to take and my suitcase is getting bigger by the second.

Does anyone know if it's best to buy a board out there or at home, its just im thinking the first day we get to go on the slopes i dont know if im gonna be arsed to trapse round looking for a board while everyone else is having fun without me

- love this guy!

well i ski but personally am gona wait till out there to buy as snow may not be great for first few weeks and dont wana scratch new skis, also, if get to know ski shop peeps well i think seasonnaires may get small discount, think i read that on natives somewhere...yes am also getting very jealous of pudders and the 6th dec coach!

Hey Frankie,
yeah def buy out there - you will get discount, probably about
10-20% off, but also the chance to test them for a few days which you wouldn't over here, so that solves the problem of wasting time too as you can be out there trying them out!
- he does rock this little fella!
