I do think the past 27 pages have achieved little in all honesty.

As organiser YOU need to set a date and go from there. If you dont agree with me about going back to Tignes, then YOU choose a resort and see who signs up and who doesnt. Its as simple as that and would save a lot of time and effort.


Gotta agree.....pretty much what i said.
Im getting bored with this thread now. I think i will just look in again when there is a thread for booking on a definite date.

What do you mean by the pistes in Livigno are overgraded?

Thanks Ian

Hmm... maybe Livigno might be too easy for some people here, in that case. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't really want to have to travel to another resort half-way through the week because I've got bored with the one I'm in.

Hi Everybody,

I was away on a 1-wk vacation in Florida, followed by a busy weekend, so only now I am finally catching up reading the latest posts. Wow: lots of comments, opinions!

I have NEVER planned a vacation so far in advance, so I clearly do not have any plans yet for 2014!

Therefore I am OK with any time choice at this point. However, since somebody suggested Tignes, I will say that I would prefer some different place, since we'll be skiing one week there in 2013. I do not have any particular preference (as long as it's a 'good' ski area ).

Stand out resort = Engelberg.
Good snow, decent onpiste, exceptional offpiste.
Train access via Zurich (cheap flights from all of UK).

Nice town, reasonable prices. 1 main bar so great way of keeping a big group together.

Anyone who has been will concur this is the place for you.

Am afraid some suggestions like Livigno (biblical transfer time) cannot compete to this place.

I heard lot of good things about Engelberg and even that it's not feasible for my weekly skiing, I keep in on my radar for long trips. They have very good snow record. Even last season though poor by their standrads was way better than in most places.

Engelberg is a fab resort. It's got the feel of a real destination, and the transport links are top notch. However I'm not sure about the resort for a J2Skier week. There is no ski in-ski out for starters, buses or walk to the main Titlis lift. The biggest attraction of Engelberg is the off piste, again I'm not sure that it would provide the right kind of skiing for the majority of the group.

Thanks for the info. Bandit

Is there maybe a resort near Engelberg that would be okay for the rest of us (who probably want ski in/ski out and a larger ski area than 80 Km of pisted runs that J2Ski says Engelberg has), so that the advanced/expert J2Skiers could disappear off to the delights of the off-piste at Engelberg during the day and rejoin us in the evening?
