Yeah, I know what you mean, I've been skiing since i was 2ys old, yet never met anybody else round here (in the -diff) who was as into it as me Although I do live 200m from the local dry ski slope and never bothered to join, which probably explains my lack of contact with other welsh skiiers. I'm goin to Whistler though for this forthcoming season so that sould be a bit of a laugh Wahey

There are a few, one of the best boarders I know is from Swansea.

Be sure to get some welsh dragon stickers for your board before you go so you can represent.

Dragonlodge in Tignes http://www.dragonlodge.com/ is owned and run by top welsh guys, and thus attracts lots of welsh holiday makers. Give that a go if you don't want to be the only welshman in the village

"why is there such a lack of snow lving people in south wales?"

Is it because they prefer sheep?

Spent one week on my own last season before meeting up with others for a second week, sounded like a good idea but was boring as hell!! If you are heading off on your own would suggest going with a company that does performance courses that way you get a shared room which reduces costs, you get to ski with people of your standard and improve your skiing at the same time and have loads of people to spend the evening with. A variety of levels go so you can take it as seriously as you want to. Would recommend snoworks but there are several other too if you search the net.

bollix to da lot of ya
may-be your part of wales is sad but don't write da rest of us off.... some of me best mates is welsh n awesome on or off piste, but as with da rest of "british" society, there's a lot of sad c~*ts who have no interest and more importantly no business bein up a mountain n it's best left that way
so to all you rasist bigots, it's not a welsh ting or irish, black, white, bleedy purple ting.... whatever your creed, colour, religion. it's just epic that most folk don't wanna go skiin/boardin.... i just wish they'd tell their w*^#er mates to give up winter seasons/holidays for good n leave it for just us....
ya want sum, come get sum, cos i is a rantin. gis a pill n i'll go ravin as well
GO HARD OR GO HOME!!

Woo, I sense a South (best obviously!), versus West versus North argument building up! :P
Take your marks, get set, start sla*gin-off........NOW!

P.S. I stand by Welsh Phill in his argument that everyone else except those worthy enough should be told to p*ss off and leave it to us to get on with things!
(I know, I know what about jobs etc.....calm down I'm only jokin!lol)
