Whisper it but Laurenne is really a Canuckistani. Shush! Don't let that Nick Fellows know. Can't be doing with him telling us every single time she's racing :lol: .
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

All 4 of our Alpine skiers are tech racers. Hope that by the next Olympics we have some downhill/super G people in too. (I don't care if they don't win, I just want someone to cheer on! 8-) .)

We paid 24 euros for 2 beers in a bar/restaurant in Courchevel the other week :shock: . We did get a few free crisps in a tiny bowl, though :roll: . (It was snowing, it was windy, it was cold and it was there. And no, we never went back.)
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@geepee, yes, they're all nutcases, though! If I were a ski racer, (rather than an inept, English holiday skier), I would do slalom.

Just watched this on Eurosport player. I'm a big Julia fan, (she always seemed good fun and looked like she loved her racing, whatever her results) but I'm glad she's retired as she's never looked comfortable since her op. I wish her all the best in whatever she wants to do now. I've now transferred my allegiance (American team-wise) to Laurenne Ross, who always seems to give a nice smile at the bottom of the slope. I don't like sulks, tantrums or drama queens! 8-)

In the end I took them through the small claims procedure, it took a long time. I have successfully claimed for a delay caused by a plane not being in position due to weather at an airport not directly involved in my travel. It did take about 3 years, Well done both of you but I, like, I suspect, the majority of customers who have problems, do the usual complaints procedure then decide that life is too short and move on. (Can't remember whether it was Crystal, Inghams or Neilson but they lied through their teeth!)

Great video! I've been on that lift. It didn't have a table or curtains but it was still very spacious and comfortable. Obergurgl is lovely and massive thanks for sponsoring our Dave :) .

In Courchevel. Although hardly any lifts were open at 9.00am, by mid day almost everything was running apart from a few with avalanche risk. Link to Meribel was open.

In Courchevel. Not much open due to high winds. Been up and down Verdons gondola several times. Biollay chair also open. Daren't go out of valley as lifts are opening and closing every time we look! Snowing though, so not all bad!

The commentary from Nick Fellows is absurd Fixed it for you! He really is the most annoying man. We play "Fellows Bingo". Every single race it's the same old commentary. Points awarded for any mention of racers' famous skier siblings or parents, double points if he says exactly the same thing in both runs. Also phrases, "Long levered", "There are no team rules in alpine racing". Yes, it's nice to know that people get married and now have a different name. But we don't need to hear it every race. Or hear that every Canadian is a "Crazy Canuck" or Norwegian an "Attacking Viking". And why does he pronounce everyone's name in an English accent except Pinturault, which he pronounces like Inspector Clouseau would? Sorry, he gets right up my nose. I've even taken to watching Eurosport player replays where there's no commentary at all!

@mmgg1988, your experience of last year mirrors mine. Inexplicably, there were no late deals for hotels 2nd week in March. We paid more than we expected for a middling hotel but, as we already have Dec, Jan and Feb holidays in the pipeline, I'm still gambling on a March late deal!

@red 27, both companies organise flights from convenient local airports with coordinated transfers to resort. That's all I want from them and, in the main, they deliver. I go in low season to decent hotels and it's usually cheaper than DIY. (Crystal reps are usually younger than Inghams but they're all younger than me so WGAF :lol: .)

@drporat, for skiing at your level, I'd say Obergurgl but there's not much nightlife there, it's more family orientated. If you're party animals then Ischgl would suit you more. From my experience, Ingham's personnel in resort were slightly better than Crystal's but Crystal's website and speed of answering email queries are better. To be fair, there's not much to choose between them and you'd be unlucky to have a bad holiday with either, so just look at both, compare and choose.

Obergurgl opens 16 November so certainly not too early for Austria. It's also great for blue/easy red run intermediates. We went with Inghams but have also been places with Crystal and had no major problems.

@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.

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!

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.
