Did you keep the receipt for her Christmas present? Sorry fella, couldn't resist. No problem, I dumped her before I bought any pressies 8) Then you should have plenty of cash to spend on the important stuff. Like another skiing holiday. Bl***y H*ll! Where can you get a skiing hol for £5 :-D :-D :-D Dont know but if she was going to be happy with something for a fiver then you were a fool to dump her!
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@stanton, out of interest, what does the lift operator do about it? I have only done this twice as other times just just saying "excusevme it is not allowed to smoke on the lifts" is enough. Lift operators will say the same thing in an official capacity and write it down in their report ,make sure they do.!! This is normally enough for the offender to stop because they will be warned next time will be a lift ticket gone & police... So why/how is it legal to smoke in bars/restaurants (enclosed space) but not on lifts (chair lifts in the open air or are we talking gondolas/cabins. Is non-smoking lifts just a lift company rule? Seems not if the police can be called.

@ster, itís consistently wrong. Always forecasts lots of snow and revises it as you get nearer the time. Youíll see them forecast about 12 inches 5 days out, then with 3 days left itís down to 8 inches and by the day of the snow itís down to about one or two. I never trust snow-forecast more than a day or two out other than to give an idea of the general trend. That's weather forecasting for you. I am used to weather reports forecasting great conditions for upcoming weekends (snow in the week then sunshine) then seeing it get worse and worse as the weekend actually approached, funnily enough it was the forecast on the lift company's website.
And post your own questions...

They are not the only ones who reschedule. Had Easyjet move my return from Innsbruck to more than an hour later. Luckily later rather than earlier so might get a lay in on the last day! But RA seem to have made pissing people off into an art form.

If you think its muscular also go with local hot & cold treatment (alternating 10 mins if each). Keep with the anti inflamatories. Get the max strength you can buy. But watch out about overdosing if using Voltarol and Ibuprofin at the same time. And see physio asap.

Their NBC suits were warm. I wondered what MoD did with them after the charcoal filter linings had been exposed and so were no longer fit for purpose. Those would be great in cold weather, I would try to snag one and wear the top over battledress just for the warmth.

I didnt ask about the weight pooling aspect as this is well documented on their site but below is the chat re "Skis and boots" and how many bags this means: 10:54:26 ME: Hi. With a small sports equipment carriage booking it says you can take "skis and boots". As skis and boots normally fit in different types of bags does this this mean that I can take skis in one bag and boots in another, so two bags under the sports bag booking? Or does the booking only allow one bag and so the skis and boots need to be in one bag. Thanks 10:56:55 EASYJET: Hi. Thanks for your question and chatting with easyJet today. 10:57:05 EASYJET: Sure, let me check this for you. 10:59:58 EASYJET : Skis and boots can be packed in two different bags and will still be considered as one item and charged as one item as a "package deal". Please note that when adding Skis and/or Boots to a booking, even if you add just one piece , the system will automatically add [but the weight will remain of 20 kg]. This comes from the fact that Skis & Boots are considered to always be a pair, therefore there are always 2. 11:02:51 ME: Hi . OK just to be totally clear if I have bought a normal hold bag allowance, and a small sports equipment allowance I can take one hold bag, one ski bag with skis in it and one boot bag with the boots in it, so THREE bags in total as long as I keep under the weight allowance? Thanks 11:05:00 EASYJET: PS Thats THREE bags into the hold 11:05:22 EASYJET: yes.

Thanks all, will try and confirm if a boot bag is part of the ski carriage, their website does say "skis and boots" but does not say either way on if this can be in two bags or must be in one.

So is my understanding for Easyjet is (just for the hold bags, not worried about the carry on) for the following example: I have paid for both a normal hold bag and ski carriage, so I can turn up with - Hold bag (20kg allowance as booked before the new 23kg allowance - damn!) - Ski bag (with only one pair in it of course!) - Ski boot bag So no one bag can weigh more 32kg, but other than that, the bags can weigh any and all combinations not exceeding 40kg in total? And ski means a ski bag and a boot bag? Right??? My question seems to have got lost in the discussion on clothes being ski equipment or not Anybody with experience of easyjet ski carriage confirm my understanding?

The most frequent complaint are cold hands. Though oddly enough, often times once I adjusted their helmet/collar/neck gaiter interface to stop the wind from getting in, the little ones hands warm up :~/ ) When I went to an outdoor shop many years ago and said I needed thick gloves as I was going to the Siberian winter, they told me if I kept my body core temp up then blood wouldn't be withdrawn from the hands so I wouldn't need such thick gloves. It's worked for me. Good points to remember!

This lot were at the ski show https://drysure.co Does not use heat so would not have any problems with deformation issues but would not have that lovely warm toasty boot feeling in the morning. Never used them so can't recommend but pointing out as an option although from memory another snow head didn't sound like they thought too much of them if they were the boot driers referred to on the ski show thread.

As Mike Pow says depends what you are after. I had some interesting chats. We had a fun day out for not too much in London terms as I mentioned on the other thread on this. Would go back. But I dont think for the time and cost it wouldnt be worth it to come from outside London. Mike, I was looking for you to say hello at the Japanese stand but they said you werent there on Sunday. Pity.
