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 :-)

Go to a resort that has heated boot dryers in a locker room at the bottom of the funicular. Funicular takes you to a lovely cafe with sun terrace. She'll do her lesson, get changed, go to cafe, you spend the day whizzing past stopping briefly to say hello/lunch. Everyone is happy.

Is that above Avoriaz, skiing back down into the French side? Edit: I don't recall any trees there mind.

I'm actually slightly too young to be a boomer. But the OP is clearly precisely the right age to be a dickhead. :-D This made me laugh. Top work.

I agree @hells bells, wasn't a friendly feeling place at the best of times. Wonderful landscape and sense of escape, but my god it's stuffy compared to the Austrian competition. Hugely naive of the Swiss to think they could open for business and not have an incident like this. That it's happened in the location of their highest profile event is just unlucky.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

You'd be a brave athlete making any political statement in the Chinese Olympics. The organisers of these events need to stop letting their brand be abused by rogue nations for ethics-washing purposes. The only way they'll learn is through boycotts.

Err, has the science moved on to thinking you can't get this again once you have antibodies? So they're doing it because they're afraid of getting it if they already haven't? But if they have will be happy? Does the antibody test come with a certificate that employers and foreign immigration desks recognise and allow them in then?
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

@sugamoma666 there is no legal responsibility on the OP to check before sharing, nor to respect any confidentiality markings of a letter they get hold of. Those markings only have relevance in a disciplinary sense e.g. for staff and club members.

Are you sure there's enough of a market to justify the vegan element? I guess it aligns to your ethics so isn't negotiable but veganism doesn't have a universally good press (it hardly shouts fun!) and i reckon will put a lot of people off.

@Mother hucker, I am somewhat with Rob on this. Let's postulate that it's snowmagedon again (oh, those happy days) and I've rented you my apartment. At what point does your inability to get there become my fault? looking at it from that angle, i agree. what if the appartment was completely wrecked by the previous weeks renters? would the customer get a refund then? Yes, because the owner is unable to deliver on the contract.
You know it makes sense.

@Mother hucker, it stands exactly however the terms and conditions of the booking dictate. I don’t see how your analogy is the flip side of anything. its been advertised and rented out as a ski apartment but there is no skiing. I doubt very much that any contracts between renters and owners say anything beyond the property being in a certain place where skiing is an activity, as it would a municipal pool, spa etc. In any other year would those being closed constitute a reason for refund?
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Possibly naive question. Do/can small businesses (such as property owners) not insure against risks like this? Seems a bit unfair placing a moral duty onto the customer.Is it a moral duty, or just a condition of the booking? Depends on the contract i guess? But are circumstances like this (as an event that presents a fundamental issue to both parties) insurable by the business?
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Wow. Le Ski clearly think it's better to lose any goodwill than lose money by being pragmatic. Hard decision! I don't think it's that. Give them a chance to process the info. I've never used them before, would have been our first trip with them but heard good things. Can't be easy for anyone connected to this right now. Yes, i commented before seeing your better informed post. They'd do well to update their website though.

I'm with Queenie, it's embarrassing being British. Only if you're an embarrassment. This is just madness Whereas your opinion that, "it's embarrassing being British" is completely rational. If you feel so embarrassed to be British abroad then I see two options, either don't go abroad or emigrate and become a national of another domain as Queenie has done. We certainly don't need you to feel embarrassed abroad and insulting to the rest of the British people. Whoosh! Straight over your head :D

Far worse than any of the UK regional accents is the plummy bray of an entitled posh-Brit abroad, heard often in ski resorts across Europe. Grates with the locals and any Brits from aforementioned regions.

@definella we were in Avoriaz early March 2018. Don't get me wrong, the snow above 1500m was epic. But below was dire. Everyone from Morzine etc. headed up to eacape the rain. Edit: Think might have been second week of 2018. And the runs down to the Lindarets are awesome, as are the runs over by the Swiss Wall, just not much else to tbe place.

Avoriaz isn't as good as they promote it to be. There isn't much skiing above the town (itself 1800m) and the availabilty of wider area skiing is overstated and overrated if the weather is warm, because you have to ski down through crap snow and rain to really low lifts into other valleys. I loved it for a the few days we were there but anything below the 1500m freeze level was grim. You're effectively trapped in a mountain top island.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Having cycle toured a lot, both uk and abroad, i agree with the above idea about group cycle transport. If you could do it cheaper per person than a car with 4 bikes on the roof it could be a winner. Bikes are less readily hireable than skis so its a real issue as ozboy says.

Sugarmoma, there's no atattribution to those comments so no-one can claim to have been unfairly quoted. Everyone knows anything published on the net to a public (albeit memberabip/firewalled) place is likely to get out. Only if people have no decency or etiquette. If that's the general view, there's no point in having members-only sections. No point indeed when there is no clear loyalty to a common cause amongst the users of that forum. I expect the leakee could expect to be banished from that club if there's a 'no sharing' rule.
