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 :-)

We have flights Manchester to Innsbruck 18th Dec and return from Venice on 26th - no hotel booked yet (our pick in Selva has not started taking bookings yet) but might be kaiboshed as daughters school trip is weirdly 16-23rd dec and we want her to go on that so she can be assessed for skiing for her GCSE PE..

EasyJet flights so might re jig to early dec and do our own little dolomites pre season bash in their opening week…(depends if we can justify taking her out of school for a week)

Also have Feb HT week booked (11th Feb for us). Innsbruck again and then Hotel Diamant in San Cassiano.
Snagged easyJet flights as soon as they were release and not too eye wateringly expensive.
Interesting that Inghams do a package to this hotel and we have saved about £1500 by DIYing it.
After doing a lot of browsing , I get the impression that Crystal and Inghams are taking the wee wee to presumably claw some losses back.

Easter week is another possible - might do third week of April to avoid the crowds but nothing booked yet….might wait until nearer the time to see what conditions are looking like.

Maybe a week in mid to late Jan (a friend is having a 60th birthday bash with family and friends)….maybe the gnarli but nice if I can justify it to my wife !

Have booked a DIY trip to Alpe d'Huez for first week of Jan, keeping it as cheap as possible using Airbnb as I would love to bring the family on a bash later in the season.

I have purchased flights from Melbourne to Zurich departing 4th Jan, a week in St Anton from 7 Jan then a week in Zermatt from 14 Jan. Hotels booked. Deposit paid in St Anton, no deposit required in Zermatt.

Booked flights for the birthday bash. Not sure if I'm doing the double or not as thinking of the Gnarly, but should be able to change later.

BA flights very expensive as also Carnival week, but alternative of EJ from Manchester for £160. Cabin bag and Ski bag, but no hold luggage. Only drawback is early morning flight, so not able to get first train. will have to travel night before.

Must have been the first to book as I had a choice of any seat. 2C on both legs is about as good as it gets without paying for extra legroom Very Happy

This month - remove the winter tyres and wheels, wash and store on the Tyre Tree. Check tread depth and pick out all the stones, rebalance the wheels if necessary.

Then…

Prepare carefully throughout the year all the new gear for growing Grom - this year a new powder board and possibly split board. Try to remember to bring back all the grown-out-of gear so people on here get a chance to nab it for their own groms…(John S you know who you are…Lozza too…)

Then…

Last minute panic ferry or tunnel booking anticipated around about 10 Dec.
Try to remember to put jackets in the car.

@brianatab, @Alastair Pink,
Yep I'm booking an AVIOS one way from VCE to gla. The vce flights to London are a little bit up but London to Glasgow are silly prices. One way in economy is £250.

Cheaper in Lufthansa return but need to use air miles and a voucher.

I'll work out later if doing the BB or preBB+BB double.

Further to above we have booked flights to Milan. Anyone got any advice/thoughts/experience of either Hotel Pontiglia in Livigno OR Hotel Monte Cervinio in Champoluc Interested in both thoughts on resort and the hotels if anyone has been. Aware they are at the budget end of the spectrum so not expecting luxury! If you have been to both resorts, which would you go back to again in February with teens?

Just flights at this stage though already getting twitchy for a hotel booking.....few nights in Dec to GVA which will hopefully straddle the PSB and also to VCE in January. Getting tempted by cheap half term flights at the mo but will try to resist...

I thought carnival week normally aligned with pancake day (so Tuesday 21 Feb in 2023 ?)
Birthday bash 4th-11th ?

Everything all booked (apart from Eurotunnel, as not on sale yet) for DIY trip to les menuires for Christmas 22/23 and Val Thorens in Easter 2023, with my two daughters. we all have our own kit, so no need for rental equipment. unfortunately there are never any early bird discounts for 3v lift passes, so will just pick them up near to arrival in resort. Though my eldest is booked on a separate trip to Val Thorens with some friends in January, so it may make sense to buy a season pass for her, and she just contributes towards her 3v pass for her trip.

only change that may need to make, which affects the Eurotunnel, is that we may go on to Paris for a few days after the trip to les menuires. we have just returned from a 7day city break taking in Paris/Disney and Bruges, and could have done with a couple more days in Paris to do it any justice.

we were talking about a trip to Paris in October half term, but then thought that we will be in France for the ski trip so might as well divert to Paris on the way home instead of going straight to the tunnel from Les Menuires, saving on duplicate channel crossing fares Very Happy Very Happy

We’ve booked BA flights to Innsbruck for Feb half term. Managed to use the Amex 2-4-1 voucher with avios so that should mitigate the eye watering transfer to the resort. Looking at staying in Corvara again or maybe San Cassiano. Might get an Easter trip booked nearer the time depending on where the snow is

Austria as ever. Probably one week in ZamS and one in Obergurgl. Still got some hesitation having seen the Spaniard bring back the face nappies but going to DIY directly with hotels whilst purchasing their cancellation insurance that includes Covid reasons. Likely to use Jet2 flights as they seem to have come out of Covid with most credibility for flexibility when postponement/cancellation has been necessary.

As it stands wont even consider the TO's unless they change their terms on cash refunds instead of alternatives if the chosen holiday is unavailable.

Flights booked for late Nov weekend (no lifts but maybe some mild touring), 10 December (hopefully lifts open), 5 Jan (uni hols trip with kids) and 27 Jan for 10 day trip with friends. Will book for first weekend in March once EJ release flights and have a think about an end of season weekend maybe early April.

PdS season pass bought (€530 - bargain).
