Best 40th present ever

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
My amazing wife has just unveiled my 40th birthday present, 2 years in the planning. A week in Solden with my best friends, boys only, but also making our own skis at a workshop in Innsbruck before heading to resort - the place is www.spurart.at

Apart from the fact that I am married to a complete legend, this also means I am getting very excited for March.

Has anyone else done this? Looks fun! Not sure I should ski on anything I build, though - let alone made by some of the muppets coming on this trip...

Cool!

I didn't build anything, but I did go and check out the workshop and chat with the (one of) owner a couple of years ago. Seemed like a great set up, and they were certainly making some good looking skis!

OH sent me on a boys trip for my 40th.

Top Tip: There is a certain level of hangover where you can no longer ski difficult green runs.

Yep. Hangover skiing is bad.

Clarky - what else did you think of the skis/owners/setup?

40th Boys trip was to Verbier. Great fun. Funnily enough the boys 50th trip was also to Verbier. Mind you we couldn't party at 50 like we could at 40 Laughing Laughing

She is at home, but the boys leave on Friday, and she joins me for a long weekend with just the two of us on the slopes. Really looking forward to that.

I am going to have to seriously up my game for her big birthday in a few years.

Alas my mates arent of a ski or snowboard persuasion but my missus skis so my 40th was 2 weeks in Whistler with a few days in the middle down in Vancouver. Loved it 😎 especially my unplanned party with a bunch of New Yorkers and New Zealanders in the Irish pub. Doin it again next year for my 50th 😆😆😆
Enjoy your holiday with the boys 😎

A guy I spoke to during my skiing trip a week ago broke both of his ankles last year, so that's probably a wise decision. .........although I don't think he made his own skis or bindings. Laughing

We made the skis last weekend. The workshop is hard work!

I'm pretty pleased with them. Mine are the ones in the middle. They have been quite fun in the wet slushy conditions in Solden over the last couple of days. Quite an effort on piste, mind.

The snowboard, with its book matched veneers, looks fantastic.

@Harry Flashman, ...excellent

My parallel was a 45th present of a half-day 1:1 ski tech course with the then-in-Jon's-garage Piste Office. Absolutely wonderful experience. I often need to work on 8-10 pairs of family skis, and I have not only saved a small fortune, but actually have built up from Jon's base, a whole load of craft knowledge. I recently prep'd a pair of slalom competition skis for the director of a ski school - and he was very happy with the result - all thanks to the skills which Jon C put in place...

Valais2 - I really want to do that course! One of my best friends has, says it was really good. (His skis from last weekend are at the far right hand end of the group above - and are about to be fitted with Quiver Killers from Jon shortly...)
