I have absolutely no bloody idea why I'm posting on this thread at all, since I have zero interest in the topic. Silly me. :lol: :lol: :lol: I know! I hardly ever get tempted but sometimes I just can't help it. I'm now off to post in the new Strictly thread where I do have an interest. (Cue disparaging comments from people who think it's beneath them to watch such frivolous rubbish but I don't care! :nice: )

Dear God .. can no one read ??? Oh, the irony! :lol: Thanks for your support, Hurtle 8) . We, "old women who live in a ski boot", (copyright Gentleman Gerry, utterly charmless representative of SKGB), have to stick together. (Only when we're right, obviously ;-) .)

@limegreen1, errr, David's quote was accurate. It was a quote directly off SCGB's website. If you prefer your skiing outside of the piste poles then December is a great time of year to ski. Whilst the most recent seasons have not been blessed with the best dumps in December, previous ones have had more than enough to whet the appetite of any serious freerider. If that's not promoting December as a good, (possibly great), month for off-piste skiing, I don't know what is. Oh, and I'm not particularly a fan of DG but he's certainly telling the truth with this post.

@ster, I'm a big scandi drama fan so I watched this and enjoyed it. Lovely snowy scenery, although not much skiing. @hawkwind, I kept thinking that a head would come through the "cellar" door and shout, "Heeeerrrreee's Johhnnnyyy" :lol: .

You don't find many ESF enthusiasts in this forum. Well, yes, that's true. But we're all a bit anal on here and in general, many thousands of people go on their first ski holiday with a TO, book lessons with "The Ski School", (they have no idea who that is, let alone that there is a choice of ski school in most resorts), and still have a great time. So, in an ideal situation, the OP would research all available ski schools and pick out their chosen one but sometimes it's easier for complete beginners just to go with the flow, (and the other nervous beginners in their TO group), to the meeting place which will have been shown/clearly explained by the rep on the transfer bus. Wandering round in unfamiliar territory, in ski boots, carrying skis, worrying about the time and looking for "your" different ski school is not the best way to start the day. Just another point of view!

Congratulations! Sometimes, when I read a new thread title, I think, "Oooh, that sounds interesting, I bet it's Alastair." And usually, it is! As informative and polite on the forum as in real life, you're an asset to the forum. I look forward to reading your next 10,000. (If we both last that long :lol: .)

Not sure for a couple but I think it would be great for a single. A ready made companion who'd show you round and give you the local view of thing would be ideal. And there are lots of single (or with non skiing partners) snowHeads who are always looking for short breaks. I presume Claude B wouldn't insist on full Sat to Sat weeks either.

I take a wheelie case as my hand luggage and almost always I am asked, at check-in, if I want to put in in the hold for free, as they are struggling for space. I say yes, unzip my case and take out my 10 litre day sac, which conveniently is filled with anything I might need on the plane, and will then be used each day for skiing purposes. I don't want to cart my wheelie case around the airport anyway or have to find a space for it in the overhead bins so this satisfies everyone. In fact if they don't offer to put it in the hold, I get quite miffed!

@NickyJ, OK, it would have been too much faff for me! But I have 4 kids and fines for term-time absences hadn't been invented when they were school age. So maybe there is a market now, I don't know :~/

Are we going to be subject to a series of fairly banal questions so that you can keep plugging your Facebook page? I didn't actually notice the Facebook page link. I just thought that as lots of people on here are interested in ski weekends, someone asking for views on what exactly people are looking for is relevant and would interest a lot of people. It's not as if he/she's hiding behind an anonymous user name. @ValueSkiBreaks, not sure if anyone on here would want anything other than maximum ski on snow time!

I'm retired so no need to do this now but previously, take Friday off work for early flight and get 2.5 days skiing. I'm not sure families with school age kids are the target market for weekends. Too much faff!

A chair lift from Sauze d'Oulx to Sportina. Not even with skis on! We arrived on the coach transfer then were told that we would go up to our hotel on the chair lift and our luggage would be waiting for us there. It was my first ski holiday and as I went up, (freezing cold as I was dressed in ordinary clothes), I thought that I'd have to ski all the way back down there in the morning :lol: . Next day, as we spent all morning side stepping uphill, I began to wish it had been true!

It's all a matter of perception. Skiing in Austria, I shared a lift with a German from Munich who said he always skied in Austrian resorts because they were better (bigger) than German ones. He was convinced that all British people loved skiing because wherever he skied, (large Austrian resorts), there were always a majority of Brits! :lol:

Alpine Palace is the best ski hotel I've ever stayed at. Food is like something off Masterchef and the spa is super. And if you stay in one of the old rooms, (not luxurious but perfectly adequate) it's affordable. Who spends much time in their room on a ski holiday?

@Ski lots, when do you stop skiing and when do you go to bed? Well, there's drinking, swimming, sauna, shower, hair wash and dry, etc. Cooking a decent meal from fresh ingredients does not take long! Yes but it's the planning, shopping, (and there's always something you can't get so there's the indecision of what to substitute it with), not to mention the clearing/washing up. It's why God invented hotels. (And now the kids have grown up and left home we can afford them! 8) )

The instructions say "Not compatible with snow goggles or anti-fog treated lenses." You're right, they do! But they also say: Oakley Nanoclear™ lens treatment can be used on any type of eyewear which is stupidly confusing. Are goggles not eyewear? (I wouldn't risk it, though.) @valais2, even thinking about your inner anti fog coating will cause it to go cloudy yep! :lol:

@Scarlet, my lenses get a gentle wash in a mild waging up liquid solution. Or alcohol wipes. No! That's what I do for sunglasses and it's fine. So I did the warm water and washing up liquid thing on the inside of my goggles (Oakley), carefully dried them with a soft cloth and .... they were totally wrecked. Something to do with the coating, I guess, but the lenses were permanently cloudy. I couldn't complain as the instructions clearly said to clean, only rub with the bag provided. But obviously, that doesn't work too well with grease :x . I was quite cross at the time and would never do that again now I've bought new ones.

@king key, this is true. I've seen many a skier come a cropper at a restaurant. Best one for spectators was the poor lady with the spaghetti bolognese. She slipped, the plate went up in the air, she landed flat on her back and the spag bol landed all over her face and hair. The whole restaurant was torn between feeling sorry for her and trying not to laugh :oops: .

@VolklAttivaS5, they might use hand wipes instead; I do. Freezing cold water/no soap/no paper towels/useless hand-driers are common in France. In general, Austria has cleaner loos with better facilities.
