As @Sunshine81, said Crystal will get you there. Used Chambery once and vowed never again as it was chaos. However a ski pal uses it every time and she rarely has trouble and has a shorter transfer than me. If only they had a 'Crystal ' ball😊😊

Cheap goggles are ok until it snows - then you find out why they were cheap!!

@intermediate, re a knee brace I would recommend a Ski Mojo - expensive but effective.

Summer Special is same distance as Long Term i.e. 5 minutes. .difference is you leave your keys and they move to another car park while you're awAy. Used it a few times without problems - never been more than a couple of miles put on the odometer.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

@CAPTA1N P, there were issues with the clips on a version of the mojo - see earlier in this thread. If you call Martin at ski-mojo he'll sort you out - he was very helpful when I had a different issue a while back.

Surfanic roller bags are good - about £50 on their website.

@thefatcontroller, Definitely not too early to send CV out - most will be recruiting already. Both of my kids did seasons with Ski Famille and they had great times - worth giving them a try.
And they're a friendly bunch.

@Frank Lundy, I'm with @Steilhang, on this one - if you're going to stop, stop towards the side on the crest and not below it. Looks like a very slick morning piste after a good overnight freeze to me - need to be cautious.
You know it makes sense.

Used it once - check-in was chaos, too many people in too small a space. Never went back.

Can anyone recommend a good boot fitter in Dublin? Friend of mine over there has boots that need tweaking. Thanks.

As you will have gathered it's easily doable. Couple of points- keep an eye on the weather, if a storm comes in they do close the lifts which connect the valleys. Also,don't cut it too fine. Got stranded in Mottaret once as they'd started putting the cabins away for the night and ran out of cabins so they just shut the lift early. We pointed out that it was ten minutes early but they just shrugged their shoulders and went home. TAXI!!

Always tell them at the start of the week that if they do a good job they'll get a decent tip. More motivating than a lump of cheddar we've found.

@danmar94, Far more important than that - around about twice a year someone (usually a person quite new to Snowheads) will start a helmet thread. Then you just sit back and watch the fun.

I had a similar problem on the inside ankle bone (no idea what it's called). Had the shell stretched a little and that sorted it. Hopefully one of our bootfitters will come along and give their opinion.

Couldn't ski without mine as I have serious knee injury. However, as @pam w, said it doesn't fix you in a ski position - just takes a lot of the load off the knees. Also, if you can, worth going somewhere that will set them up for you and attach the brackets permanently to your boots - Edge and Wax will do that but depends where you are obviously.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

The only one I have experience of is CEM. He'll look at and measure your feet and suggest the best boot(s) for you. I think his range is large enough to accomodate most feet as long as you're not fussy about irrelevant matters such as colour and brand. :D :D

@foxtrotzulu, Agree with you - at that age the 3 year old won't get much out of it and Mum and Dad probably won't get much skiing in. Not always easy to find a friend or relative that can accomodate such a request though. ;-) ;-)

Livigno in Italy. Lots of easy slopes right by the village so you can retreat back to your accomodation easily if necessary. Generally cheaper than France and duty free. Quite a high altitude. Downside - long transfer.

I'm with you @erica2004, - you modify the boot to accomodate the foot, not vice versa.

The Hochkonig area is very nice and has a decent amount of skiing - mainly intermediate. The skiing in Maria Alm itself is limited and you need to get the ski bus to get to the main area - just 5 minutes down the road. We stayed at The Hotel Thalerhof which was excellent and right by the ski bus stop. Would definately recommend for a couple of days. Usually ski in Courchevel so the Austrian prices were very refreshing!!
And they're a friendly bunch.

I'd say Saalbach. From memory the nursery slopes are right by the village whereas with Ischgl the slopes to the village can be quite difficult.
