I read of his sad death on Twitter yesterday (no details) and could hardly believe it. Hope it is investigated fully and "lessons learnt" as they always say. I watch the F1 races on Eurosport so will miss "Mr Fish".
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@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 know it makes sense.

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.

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!

When people are trying to lose weight well-meaning health professionals all tell them to "find an exercise you like". Well, duh, you think they haven't thought of that? Some people just don't and will never find an exercise they like. As my (overweight but happy) mate Pauline says, "I've tried everything and I hate them all. I'm at work all day, I've got cooking, cleaning and 3 kids to sort when I get home. So if anyone thinks I'm going to waste the odd half hour doing something that makes me miserable they can f*** right off. A bar of Cadburys in front of the TV wins every time." (I'm hungry now. What I'd like is a large glass of wine and a bag of nuts. What I've had is a large cup of rooibos tea :( .)

Don't have toast or cereal. They're both simple carbs, ie sugar. Eggs and fruit and natural yogurt are better and will fill you up for longer. I know everyone swears by porridge but I hate it. I'd rather go hungry! I don't run anymore but love to dance. Hells Bells, have you tried zumba? Good fun and calorie burner. I also do ballet twice a week which is hardcore, although it looks easy! I love swimming but like you, it is a faff, but I make sure that if I take a holiday, a hotel with a pool is a must. And I use it everyday. Tennis? I'm rubbish but I take lessons at the local club. It not expensive as it's group lessons and you don't even have to be a member. Get in touch with your local club as they might do something similar. I only found out about them from a friend so you may be missing out unless you ask. Most of my clothes are tight. If I put on weight I am uncomfortable which makes me want to lose it. Never have "fat clothes" hanging around as if you have nothing to wear it focuses the mind! This is particularly difficult on holiday, when, by the end of the week, I have put on several pounds as usual rules don't apply :lol: . Lastly, prepare to be hungry. I am, a lot of the time :( . But then I'm a Kate Moss fan. Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. (Disclaimer, this is probably not a healthy way of looking at things but it works for me.)

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!

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?
