Markymark -I was rather hoping to get a used one that was no longer wanted.

Written by Andy Thurner. I'm after the English version post 2009 -might be known as the second edition. Thanks

I should think that five hours down the line, the order would be on its way. Seems a little strange to cancel 5 hours later, did you find it cheaper elsewhere?

I’ve never understood crazy pricing of alcohol by resorts. When I went on my honeymoon to one of the islands on the Great Barrier Reef back in 2000 we shared the ferry to the island from the mainland with supplies for the resort. I could see the slabs of beer they had bought at the bottle shop. I ordered my first beer at the resort and learnt the price was approximately 5 times what they paid in the mainland. Feeling completely fleeced I had just that one beer for the entire 4 days we were on the island. If the fleecing had have been even slightly reasonable (say 300% mark up) I probably would have had at least 24 over the holiday. The resort would have profited a lot more as a result. Surely they would learn not to cross over to the ridiculous? Bit like racecourses, Wetherby about £5,50 for a Guinness -no way- I'll hang until after racing. £4 -oh go on I'll have a couple.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Isola 2000. I went on a university trip in the mid 80s and it was cold and windswept with about 1 small shed on the whole mountain to shelter in. And the skiing was crap. Vail because it’s so high you use all your energy just staying alive with the thin air and low temperatures. And it’s full of ‘merkins. Interesting! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merkin

Another interesting question is .... Which resorts have you not been to yet and wouldn’t even consider going to? All Bulgarian and Romanian resorts. Imagine the snow to be poor and the runs limited.

NickJ-I think you are correct and that hired total refers to all that you have hired e.g boots, helmet, skis, poles. I don't think I've ever known hire boots get stolen especially towards end of season . I haven't managed to find any company in the UK just doing stand alone insurance for ski hire -guess the market is too small. Probably bite the bullet and pay the shop as too much hassle with excesses and police reports. One beer less a night should do it and probably not a bad thing.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

Just checked my Insure and Go Policy -the hired total is £250 . I'm beginning to think that is the grand total for the family so if four lots of skis (unlucky but possible) go missing, the ski shop will be saying that one pair is well in excess of that even if end of season. The ski shop insurance is usually very expensive -time to see if anyone offers standalone ski hire insurance like car hire excess which is so much cheaper if not bought from the car hire co.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Thought about booking group lessons in advance for Easter for a 11 and a 14 year old before arrival. No rush as over three months away but thinking ahead. However http://arlberg.skischule-shop.com/ advises "Not bookable for Christoph -for St Christoph are different prices. Does this mean that no matter how many kids book in on the day , the ski school will always have enough instructors? Thanks

I think that you would be protected for purchases made fraudulently but not for the initial purchase you made. Happy to be wrong on the latter.

https://www.moneysupermarket.com/credit-cards/guide-to-credit-card-protection/ suggests that amount has to be over £100 .

I had a look on the Decathlon site. They have some Wed'ze Wid 700 Men's ski boots for £109.99 which are designed for advanced skiers wanting warm boots. " Wid 700 boots are very polyvalent. Their fit volume is very generous and makes no concession on upkeep. The flex at 90 lets you vary the rhythm". I'd appreciate an English translation.

Do people listen to music while skiing or while in lit queues/lifts? If the former isn't it dangerous not being able to hear someone coming from behind?

I think there is a difference between "how much will I spend on lunches , dinners , drinks etc" where the answer might be c$1500 and "how much should I take in cash" where the answer might be c$100.

I've never booked child lessons with a TO -just turned up at the school HQ. However it may be advisable to book online with the schools in advance in certain resorts at busy times of year. Adult turn ups were told that the classes were full in Kuhtai last Easter.

Apres very quiet imo. Not a patch on St Anton or Ischgl which must be top of the tree but nor did it touch Saalbach. Skiing is intermediate

Not quite your situation but I had an ACL replaced about 8 years ago. I have always skied with a knee brace since then. A couple of times a ski has got a bit stuck in snow and there has been a twisting of the knee -but no damage done. Was it because of the brace or would no damage have been done anyway? No idea but I don't ski without it.

With a package it is not your problem if Air Traffic or the airline/ferry goes on strike. If booking yourself , you could end up with accommodation/car hire paid for but unusable. Not sure if all/any insurance policies cover this.

I was looking to book a holiday for Winter 17/18 but no operator appears to be offering this resort (or Fiss or Ladis). A quick search on the usual room booking sites comes up with about £2000 for a week for a double and I can't find any cheap flights from up North . Add in airport transfers and it becomes too expensive. If tour operators can offer Lech and Zermatt at not totally outrageous prices, why do you reckon that they don't offer Serfaus?

I went to St Anton with two weeks skiing under my belt. I can still recall that the blues felt like red or blacks elsewhere and so on. Great place for atmosphere but wish I gone when I was much better.

This has got to be a wind up. "Forced me to put skis on and stand up". Pistol to head job? Maybe tiddlywinks would be a better pastime until you twist your wrist and your instructor forces you to keep playing.

Bought mine in 1993- Tecnicas . Went to Obergurgl last year. Ski hire said they would need changing next year. Day 1 standing about near lifts and entire sole of left boot detached leaving me standing in liner . Walked to hire shop and right boot did the same . Fortunately I wasn't on the mountain. So mine lasted 24 years.

When you take into account that it will cover lift pass, ski hire, lunches, half board, apres ski and transport, the company can't be making much out of it.

Only been there the once when I had much more disposable income than now. The Matterhorn is everything from Zermatt and nothing from Cervinia. While you could stay in Cervinia and ski Zermatt, you'd be at the mercy of closed lifts and you'd spend a lot of time travelling to and fro. The resort is really pretty . If you offered a paid trip to Zermatt or Verbier, I'd take Zermatt every time.

Saalbach OK not the steepest but should suit most abilities and has apres to suit most.
