I shall be there. Not one to miss out on a party, its a bit out of the way and a bizzar date. Not going to meribel off to st anton! See you there.

Great, it's a bit of a pain to get to as I live in Manchester, but sure it will be worth it. Nice to meet people before we go out there.

Guess i'll see you at Victoria too - think Meribel and St Anton are going on the same day...4th December?

Cool, should be fun. Bit nervous about it in that i'm a first timer and don't know anyone, but sure I'll be fine after a beverage or two!

you'll be fine mate, go to the Pub on opening night, get hammered, you'll meet just about everyone in resort. then you just gotta try and remember names for the rest of the season
04/05 & 05/06 - Meribel, D!cks Tea Bar, DJ

bachel has had a bit of a refurb think if your living in then its not to bad, was proper shite a couple of years ago, a tiny room next to the kitchen think the owner has knocked a wall down to make it bigger but not 100% sure all accom is pretty basic although my second season i had a 2 bedroom apatment with bathroom and kitchen to myself, and i was only a chalet assitant!!

Yep, this is my first. Not sure I could afford to do more than one!

Any pearls of wisdom for the new girl?

I'm leaving for Annecy tomorrow, then I'll be in Meribel in early December (presuming I've found somewhere to live by then...).

BRING IT ON!

Hey, I take it Ski world is a company? I'm not going to the party but wish i were, it'd be well good to see some familiar faces when i get out there.

I'm going Meribel too, but i haven't got my contact through yet so don't when i'm going!! Sucks!!

Skiworld are good company in the grand scheme of things. They are largest independant op, so don't have totally crazy rules etc like the thomson / crystal / first choices of this world, but then again, not as small as the ski beats / Le Ski / Ski Olympics of the world.

Reckon, the company is fairly irrelevant - its the people you are with that makes the season. Me and boyfriend working for Skiworld too, also - no contact yet..... CANT WAIT!!!!
