Hi, I'm Andy, a 60plus male. The ski club gb have classified me as 'advanced intermediate' - I'm happy and confident on most runs except challenging blacks. I enjoy skiing for most of the day with only short breaks for coffee and lunch.
I also prefer catered chalets but would stay in a hotel. I would prefer en-suite rather than shared bathroom.
I have been away already this year and have another trip booked and another planned so would be looking for a good deal. I've been looking and Skiworld and Crystal they have some availability - ski world at La Rossier at £399 but might reduce further - I've not skied there so would need to research first. I think Crystal have some to Passo Tonale, again I've not skied there.
I would be happy to ski most resorts as long as they are reasonably large and high. I've just come back from Val D'Isere, which is great but would prefer somewhere else.

What are your thoughts? Have you found anything interesting? Where could you fly from I can do all London airports and a few others but Stansted is best.

I'm happy to forward my contact details if you think it would be useful.

All the best
Andy dobson

Hello Andy
I have been eying up a couple of 'cheapies' mainly Chalets as Im not a self catering type and usually like most of us, too knackered to strart thinking about going shopping....and mainly flying out of Gatwick on 5th or 6th Jan
Ski Total have a couple of Chalets in Alpe D'Huez at £399
Ski solutions also have similar Alpe D'Huez accom and also the Ski Lodge in Val d'isere all at about £399

Thats really where Im pitching it... obviously theres cheaper option, i.e. Andorra/Bulgar
ia but..... well no thanks!!
We are in the window for a good deal but of course it usually means 2 bods flying out of the same airport and so hows that work for you?

If you want to give me a buzz on either Home 01843 600286 or Mobile 07592903702

Cheers, Mick

Update Holiday now booked Leave next weekend. It's useful to be able to find others to ski with especially when partners don't want to ski. Will update upon return from the 3 vallies you can't get bored there. Andy
