Borovets, Bulgaria
Killington, Vermont
St Jovite, Quebec, Canada
Livigno, Italy
Wengen, Switzerland

Wengen was the better of them for snow all but the best apre-ski is Livigno for sure!

Must go again, maybe this winter .....

Genuinely and take this advice. Try Italy and La Thuile. La Thuile is stunning, nice restaurants and fantastic intermediate skiing. I love it. All you English book with either Inghams or Thomson/Crystal in either the Planibel Hotel or the Planibel apartements.

Not only is it fantastic, you get to fly through the mountains into Turin on either a BA RJ100(Inghams) or a Thomsonfly 757(Thomson/Crystal)

Mount Rose and Slide Mountain, small areas, are less than an hour away from my door. Feel like spending a bit more for a lift ticket, nearby favorites are Kirkwood and Heavenly.

I also ski places in Utah and Colorado but pretty rarely anymore.

I'd rather poke pins in my eyes, thanks all the same!  wink 

But on a more serious note, I will bear La Thuile in mind when I book this years winter trip, thanks for the recommendation!  smile

Courmayur is a great place. I liked going up in the cable car thingy and then skiing down the side of the mountain.

I usually go to Hillend out near Edinburgh, plus it has an added bonus, you can see all the aircraft arriving into EDI as long as they are using RWY 24.  Silly

I went to a place near Zurich once about 15 months or so ago and there is a great place near Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic (it was also featured in the movie Last Holiday with Queen Latifah) that's really good.

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

My favorite place to ride (skiing is for wusses, nuts to independant suspension) is Copper Mountain, I also like Winter Park, Wolf Creek, and Purgatory, but nothing comes close to the vertical Copper has.

Davos (Switzerland). Great skiing, linked to Klosters (in good conditions you can ski non-stop for a couple of hours without taking a single lift from the top of the Parsenn all the way down to some of the villages around the Klosters area... wonderful). Lots of après-ski as it's a rather large town. I love the place!


Long live Aer Lingus!

Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

Yeah, boarding is a great thing, as every plane travel begins with it...

Or did you mean this senseless activity of these hip'n trendy folks who sit on their arse most of the day, preferrably right behind an edge, discussing which slope that is far beyond their capability they will fail next on? If yes then go open your open thread. This is about winter sports, not about posing.  stirthepot

I've skiied Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Incline, Homewood, Soda Springs, Heavenly in Tahoe, and Yosemite, but my favorite is Kirkwood, which is south of Lake Tahoe. Higher base elevation than most of the Tahoe runs, lots of powder, and great scenery.
