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 :-)

Looking for a ski buddy

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I’m a 55 year old male advanced/expert skier looking for someone to go away with. My usual buddy can’t make it this year and I do not want to waste all that lovely snow that’s out there.
I live in County Durham so looking at flying from Newcastle but flexible on airports.
If anybody wants to go I’m open to resort options

Hi buddy
Wow somebody local, I can’t believe it.
The 2nd of March was the date I would like to go (what a coincidence).
I’m up for it if you are.
My legs are slowing me down as well haha.
Any idea where you would like to go and what sort of budget?
If you want to go I’m in.

I have done the spade work fot a trip to Pas de la Casa in Andorra with a friend who is stalling on confirming. I have told him I have to know by the weekend. Trying to do it on a budget!! Could be an apartment for four available if that grabs you. Will update after the weekend.

Hi thanks for getting back to me.I have been to Andorra many years ago and find it not challenging enough.if for any reason your plans fall through I would be keen on France,Italy or Austria.Flights from the southwest are expensive and I have found the cheapest way is to drive but you need at least three to make it economical.I have driven to Austria many times but at present I don't have a suitable vehicle.mike

@skier100, I haven't booked yet, waiting to find at least one more to come along. My friends don't ski anymore.
In the worst case scenario I'll go alone, YOLO. I addressed derbysky, I need more info regarding recommended guesthouse and best locations.

Mike, nope nothing sorted yet would be more than happy to share a room. As I said preferably catered in a largest ski area but I'm not too fussy, budget is flexible but probably wouldn't want to go much more than about 600ish mark.

Hi, we have room in our catered chalet in Méribel from the 17th March. We are looking for £850 inc one flight from Manchester and skis and boots, having paid £1150 for the chalet alone. Could make it a twin room if anyone else was interested?
