Reckon i can pack it all on the monday afternoon! Its bloody washing and ironing everything that takes the time - that little chore will take me most of the weekend (unless my mum takes pity on me!), but should only take me an hour or so to squeeze everything in a couple of bags!
One tip though is to pack either a seperate small bag or pack stuff you will need at the top of your bag for the couple of days tarining.

Ironing - a completely pointless activity - 4 days in a suitcase the most pristine clothes are gonna look crumpled. Apparently "trashed and crumpled" is this season's black!



How come everyone but me is going on the 6th of Dec? Im not going til the 13th!! Am working til the 9th so gonna have a manic 3 day packing session...bought my board/boots etc now, its all lying on the landing in a big pile waiting for me to throw all my clothes at it and hope for a miracle!

A question for the ladies who've done this before... what do u wear on your feet when you're not skiing/boarding...am i gonna have to buy a pair of walking boots type things? Ive got a few pairs of boots and wellies but nowt proper walking boot stylee.

How do you quote stuff???!!!
Anyway - about shoes!
Last season i had a pair of timberlands and pair of trainers - then I bought a pair of slouchy suedey ugg type boots out there as my timberlands got trashed. Also take a pair of flip flops - brill for tromping round cleaning the rooms if your a chalet girl and good for the end of the season when it gets sunny and warm![/quote]

jemman;

lots of drinking, lots of partying, and only good looking one will be me (yeah alright) no idea on that part sorry. a couple of people i spoke said they spent alot of time out drinking. but wished they spent a couple more nights in on the quiet. but hey, where do you want to go then..

last season i think in our resort men out numbered women 6 or 7 to 1, there was definately no shortage! And to be fair about 80% were fitties!
Erm, I don't really know what to say about the night life - you will have a brill time wherever you go. And make sure you take some summer clothes - there is always a at least one beach party at some point!!
