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?
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

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.

There appears to be left luggage at Verona station . Bit of a faff getting from airport to station and back especially if you have skis but at least a possibility
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

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.
You know it makes sense.

"I find my boots fit well on the first 2 days but as the week progressed, they became looser and looser and I had to keep tightening them more. My left foot was moving a bit on the last 2 days and that I felt I wasn't controlling my left ski/turns as well by the end of week vs earlier on in the week. And my toe kept pushing forward and one of my toe was hurting after a day of skiing. " I find that as well whether with my own boots or hire boots. I start the week with thin socks but as the week progresses , I find I have to wear thicker socks and tighten the adjusters. I put it down to everything getting compressed . What is the answer, please?

Your choice but is really worth messing about for what in the overall scheme is things is not a large amount. Don't get me wrong, I'd be really cheesed off and it is money I'd rather spend on something else but do you really want to risk spending time in pokey the next time you are in France?

The main things to remember with an auction buy are: 1. Don't forget the buyers permium - £609 for cars over £10,000 at BCA but drops for cheaper cars. 2. In general you bid, you bought it and have to pay for it there and then so make sure you have the funds available. 3. Also on you bid, you bought it you're expected to take it way there and then too so make sure you have insurance cover or a trailer. 4. You only get to see the car from the outside before you buy so traditionally you get a golden hour after you pay in which you can reject it - but only if it isn't as described by the auctioneer as it went over the block. If they say "Sold as seen", or decide you don't like the colour there's no way back but if they say "No major mechanical faults" and you find the engine is a bag of nails you can. Don't let that put you off though. Modern cars are generally reliable and the reward for taking a little risk is saving a load of cash. Presumably you need to tax it as well -but I don't think you can tax it until you have insurance cover and I don't know how it easy it is to get insurance cover sorted out when at 10.00am you don't know the make/model/trim/modifications/reg number. Ok if in the trade as you can use trade plates. Can't you pay a parking fee for 24 hrs while you sort it all out?

My experience is that you end up paying about £300 for the boots and then have to pay about about another £70 for a footbed. Does anyone ever find that their existing footbed (assuming they have one) slots neatly into the new boots or that they don't need a footbed at all as the inner of the new boot is so good?

The Peckam does allow for individuality. The whimsical for dress down Fridays (surely that does not mean not wear a tie at all), the comical for the office party, the Egg and Bacon for trips to the cricket , the sober for important meetings etc. I know a Maths teacher with an amazing collection of mathematical ties that rotate probably to some formula or other.

Chinos as opposed to denims (and certainly not ripped ones), polo shirt or collared shirt instead of t shirt (and not a Homer Simpson t shirt) and socks. Personally I'd ban mobiles from the table and remove anyone who photographs their plate.

I think the answer is each to their own. Some people consider that because you have booked a ski holiday nothing less than skiing first lift to last lift with food and drink eaten on lifts is enough. If someone looks out of the window and thinks "I'm on holiday, it is not an exam, I want to laze around the resort to day and potter about" that seems fine to me. They have paid their money m they can take their choice.

Stayed there about 5 years ago so bear in mind that things might have changed. Location is good. It was full of petty notices about what you couldn't do.Had a nice pool. The gourmet dinner at the end of the week was a fiasco -everyone had to be there at the same time -no food served until drink orders taken and it was forbidden to bring drinks in from the bar. The last got served about an hour after the first. Have a look at http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g608673-d597070-Reviews-Hotel_Austria-Niederau_Wildschonau_Tirol_Austrian_Alps.html

I have winter tyres on my car all year round. As yet I haven't found an adequate solution for buying/storing/transporting an extra set of wheels/tyres and getting them changed twice a year. Winter tyres do seem to wear a little quicker (around 25k per pair of fronts) and cost a little more (£85 each) but on days like today it can mean the difference between getting to work or not. I understand that braking distances in non freezing conditions is extended but in very hot weather (say 90 F +) do they start to stick to the road -ie sort of melt?

For various reasons I will next be able to go skiing w/c 11 April 2015. Now there may not be an absolute answer to this but all replies gratefully received. So the question is when to book? As a for instance, Crystal have the Sportif in Obergurgl on offer now at around £900 a head but no discount for children (Party will be two adults + two children -if we can fit into one room that's ok.) I'm not wedded to Obergurgl but it would be safest to go high at that time of year. Are there deals to be had immediately after the 2013/14 season ends or do you wait until start April 2015 and hope for the best? Thanks

I was due to fly Leeds Bradford-Munich return in September and Monarch have cancelled the flight. As it is more than 14 days in advance it seems that all I am entitled to is a refund and not gettign them to stump up for KLM. http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/travel/passenger-rights/air/index_en.htm and http://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/problem/i-had-a-flight-cancellation-can-i-claim-compensation-/ refer.

DIY. Think about driving. I'm up in Cumbria and if I can get away reasonably promptly on a Friday after work and if the car is packed in advance, I can be at the channel by midnight. The theory is fine but an M6/M1/M25 accident or sheer volume of traffic can slow the motorway to a crawl and I'm not sure if it is safe to be driving at midnight if you've been up at 6am and done a full days wok. With the driving option you may also have the cost of European insurance, snow chains,warning triangles, spare bulbs, breathaylser kits etc which all mounts up. I once flew from Gatwick while others went by car. Because of the inevitable waiting around at airports and of the transfer coaches, there wasn't as much in it timewise as I thought there would be, but the car travellers were very bored with the time in the car. If travelling from the North, the more appealing the flight becomes.

Due to having to stick to termtime I have got a choice of w/c 16/2, 30/3 or 6/4. I think I have only once before had to stick to termtime due one of the party at the time being a teacher and the queues where ever it was were long and slow moving though bottlenecks do seem to have improved over the years. The snow should be more reliable in Feb but at the moment struggling to get anything under £1000 a head before lift passes, ski hire etc. The prices in w/e 30/3 and 06/04 don't seem much different. I know it will depend a bit onthe resort and the snow in the area -if you are in a high resort and the snow is rubbish lower down, people will be bussed in. Anyway which week should be the least horrendous? Thanks

muddewater, Oh dear, that doesn't sound very nice - what time of year was it? Piccadilly, Folie Douce? Ski or apres? Xmas twice probably about 1993 & 1996 . You need a certain amount of snow for the links to open -I think that they are open in mid December most years.
