Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

In the early 1960s my Dad had a Citroen DS, fantastic car. He was a member of a local car club and wrote in the club's magazine under the name "Citroen Pressé"..... :-D

The most obvious other improvement which could be made is to find some way of avoiding poling past the caravan park at Grund. Err, take the blue run (no.23) off to the right just after Aspen instead which goes down to Grund but avoids the caravan park? Closed, unfortunately. I take it that it's currently closed due to snow conditions, it was open a couple of weeks ago when I was there early February? My reply to DixieDean's comment was prompted by the thought that he wasn't aware of the blue run from Aspen. 8-)

The Traction Avant and the DS were good cars. 8-) Definitely agree about the Citroen DS, [url=https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/citroen/101998/citroen-ds-worlds-coolest-cars]voted world's coolest car of all time by AutoExpress.

I hear great things about Haus Susanne in Altenmarkt, which has a perfect uncrowded area to ski on. They have a few more options and their prices are at this link, but you still need to add the "Extras". https://austrian-adventures.com/accommodationandprices.html#pricing-table1-18 Still going to be around the £5000 mark though. I can highly recommend Haus Susanne, but just to point out it's actually in Radstadt not Altenmarkt. 8-)

@saloco, Welcome to snowHeads! :sH: In addition to Crystal, I find Inghams to be be one of the better tour operators. It's worthwhile checking in tour operators brochures and websites if they do "Learn to Ski" packages. Some operators do these which can be good value as it's it in both the resorts' and tour operators' interests to get new people hooked on skiing! :lol: Hope you and your family have a great time, you've been very sensible in having lessons at an indoor snowdome which will mean you have a head start on the absolute beginners in the resort. :D

I slate - @admin's taste in music at the BB birthday party ;-) The three jam packed gondolas up to Marmolada (purgatory). Snowhead "experts" who get far too personal and vitriolic when giving advice. (Brace yourself @awdbugga, incoming :? ) @Awdbugga, I think you are not alone in your view of admin's taste in music... :-D As regards the jam packed cable cars (not gondolas) going up the Marmolada did you set off rather late from Arabba? One of the advantages of being based in Arabba is its closeness to the Marmolada which means if you set off early you can usually beat the crowds. And talking of the Marmolada I trust (actually I know) that you don't consider jjams82 too personal and vitriolic when he told you on your first Birthday Bash "You are going to f*cking die on Friday" :-D :sH: :lol:

So, looking at travelling Tuesday or Wednesday, returning on Sunday. Probably hiring a car but public transport also an option. Trying to keep it as cheap as possible for 3 people. If you're still considering Grindelwald/Lauterbrunnen and public transport it's worthwhile noting that from Basel station there's a train (actually run by Deutsche Bahn german railways as it starts in Northern Germany) that goes direct from Basel all the way to Interlaken Ost with no changes.

One thing I came across on the AA website was reports that some US car hire places in more obscure locations had demanded an IDP from UK customers. It's never happened to me in 30 years of travelling to the USA, but again, if it avoids hassle at the time, it seems worth the minor expense. I seem to recall that a couple of years back the Florida legislature passed a Bill that as part of it required UK drivers to have an IDP. Following objections from the Florida tourist businesses who (rightly) feared a negative impact on the significant numbers of UK tourists visiting Florida [url=https://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/news/9970029/UK-drivers-dont-need-permit-to-drive-in-Florida.html]the measure was repealed.

@telford_mike, that is unfortunate, the Swiss are pretty keen on things like planning permission. As an aside, when I was in Mürren a year ago I noticed a plot of land in the village by the side of the street that runs closest to the cliff edge with the Lauterbrunnen valley that had some tall wire frame assembly on it. I wondered what it was for and someone told me that when a new building is proposed they do that so that people can see the height of the new building and raise any concerns/objections.

@1556garyt, Any commercial minibus transfer from UK to the Alps would need to comply with UK and EU regulations on driving hours and I expect a single driver would need to take rest breaks en route which would lengthen the duration of your journey. That's why as far as I know the larger coach services that operate between the UK and Europe have two drivers. Edit: It seems [url=https://www.gov.uk/guidance/drivers-hours-passenger-vehicles/1-eu-and-aetr-rules-on-drivers-hours]EU regulations require at least 45 mins break from driving after no more than 4.5 hours of driving.

I'm not a snowboarder, but I think using a snowboard leash might be a good idea. A couple of years back on the Sella Ronda I saw a runaway snowboard hurtling down the piste. On several occasions as it hit bumps it got airborne up to head height. After traveling several hundred metres down the piste it shot off to the side of the piste and into trees. A few minutes later I saw a guy running down the piste obviously chasing after his wayward board, I don't know if he ever retrieved it but I rather doubt it......

Not to be confused with Flybe, although my mate who works for the latter said that they're already coming in for a lot of abuse on Twitter. These people are allowed to vote :shock: I quite liked the Flybe product out of Southampton, tried using them everytime I flew up country but some odd flight times and noncompetitive pricing meant good ole BA and EJ out of LGW trumped them most of the time. They partly blame Brexit but I think they've struggled for a very long time. :lol: I trust you're not questioning Pruman's right to vote.... :P

Contrary to what the OP suggests, I think skiing in Scotland over the last decade has gone through a pretty healthy patch. Several good seasons (and only a few bad), a spate of new lifts and investments, a more healthy, more even spread of customers across the 5 resorts, and most recently more investment in snowmaking. This early season has been a blip, but it's too early to press any panic buttons. Cairngorm, however, has got itself into a fine old mess, and there are some serious problems there. Not insurmountable though, and fortunately Scottish skiing isn't just about Cairngorm anyway. ^. This. Glenshee in particular is a great area, I was there last year when the Beast from the East dumped huge quantities of snow! :)
