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 :-)
durr, I forgot...
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)
Six years since I've skied-planning a trip next year lots of questions!

So due to a nasty sports related injury, then x2 kids then COVID it's been a long six years since I've last skied abroad.
Next year is a landmark birthday so a group of friends and I are looking to book a trip 'somewhere' for a week.
I'm reasonably advanced, many trips prior to to 6 years ago lots of off piste tuition and guiding however the group I'll be going with are intermediate at best but I just want to go and enjoy a week in the mountains with my friends, find my ski legs again and possibly get a guide for a day or two.
We won't be tied to any set dates. My favoured time is probably late season when it's nice and sunny, longer days and cold beers on warm sun terraces.
Really not sure. I've been to various resorts all across the globe and I'm assuming not much has changed during my hiatus. Somewhere with plenty of mileage available, some night life, I think a week will be the most we can swing so will concentrate on Europe.
Been to St Anton several times, enjoyable night life when I was approaching and in my early 30's maybe not so much as I approach 40!
Been to the EK several times always staying in Tignes might fit the bill. Had a few late season trips to 3V staying in Val Thorens, plenty of variety of pistes, done most of the other big French resorts. On balance I love skiing in Italy, Gressoney in particular, however these were all guided off piste trips where I just wanted my bed after a long days skiing but there wasn't much night life.
Although not overly bothered by ski in ski out would ideally not want to faff about with buses etc
I'd previously booked DIY but not opposed to a package if it's a decent deal. We're not sure of numbers, 4-6 but thinking maybe rooms in a shared catered chalet would be good as like socialising with others particularly if our group ends up being on the smaller side?
First return to Snowheads in years
so will also see if we can coincide with one of the
as an option!
So the ski world is our oyster, any suggestions or tips would be welcome!

Yes, this sounds ideal - though so does a Snowheads bash. There aren't so many catered chalets nowadays - and many are accommodation only, so you book your own travel, or drive. Mid March ideal, if it's France (where most of the catered chalets are).
