Hi all,

It's winter and that means... skiing ! Let me know where you go skiing (country, location,...).

At the end of march, I go skiing to France in Serre Chevalier with Club Med.

Thanks for your replies.

Regards, SN-A330


I would rather be flying...

Nowadays I don't go skiing anymore (too lazy Big grin) but in the past, my parents and I were on ski holidays every year, mostly we were in Obersdorf (Germany) but also in Ischgl (Austria), Saas Fee (Switzerland) and one time also in Aspen (USA).

Have fun there Josh, I have been there in 1999 and in 2000 but in the summer, the Lake Tahoe area is a great place to spend your holidays, no matter in which season.

I ski at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, NY. It is one of the nicest places on the east cost to ski.

Kitzbühel, Austria

I´ve been there the last 8 winters and its great. The night life is Increadible!

The only bad part is that there is not always snow all the way down into the valley...

Of course ther is also the famous Streif in Kitzbühel, on which the Hannenkamm Rennen takes place.

Hey Flight 152,

every year my family skis at Holimont in Ellicottville. My cousins are members there, and their grandparents live in E-vill year round. They live so close to the hills that you can ski out right from the back door. I was just there this past Fri-Sun. It was great skiing but very cold. Have you ever skiied Holimont? I have never skiied at Holiday Valley.

I live a two-hour drive from Whistler/Blackcomb (was there last weekend -- great conditions, 30 cm new snow, and much more since then). I'm also within a half day's drive of a handful of good mid-range ski areas in the Okanagan, all with lots of snow. If I get ambitious, I can drive a full day to the Rockies and hit three or four world class ski hills there (but its bloody cold right now).

And if I get really lazy, I drive 20 minutes up to the top of the mountain I live on (Mt. Seymour) or 30 minutes to a couple of other similar mountains (Grouse, Cypress) and ski there. These local hills have a base of about 350 cm as of today, with more coming.

Don't feel the need to go elsewhere just yet -- but Utah is on my list.

There are plenty of ski stations within 90 minutes of my home, the most famous being Mont-Tremblant. I don't go there often, because it's too crowded and too expensive.

During my vacations, I go skiing around Quebec City, especially the Massif-Sud ski station. As high as Mont-Tremblant, only 40% of the price!

When I lived in the US, we did alot of skiing up in Vermont and Colorado. Since moving to France, naturally we ski in France, Courcheval, Meribel, Megeve. Last year we went to Zermatt Switzerland and that was simply amazing. This year its Chamonix.

I used to be in love with Telluride & Aspen until I discovered Lake Tahoe... there are about 12 ski resorts within an hour drive of eachother (normally side-by-side on the lake)... Heavenly & Mt. Rose are my favourites..

In Maine I ski mostly at Sugarloaf and a bit at Sunday River. I also like Killington and Pico in Vermont.

As for the west I enjoyed Tahoe alot.

I have never been to Holimount, but I suggest you go to Holiday Valley if you get a chance, it's quite nice. All around nice area.

I used to go all the time when I lived in Connecticut--I've been to Stowe, Stratton, Sunday River, Jiminey Peak, and Mont Tremblant. I've also been to a bunch of lesser known ski places in the northeast.

When we lived in Georgia, we went skiing in North Carolina twice--I forget where we went, but the places sucked.

I haven't been skiing in three years.  Sad

Back when I lived in the SLC area, I used to go to Alta all the time. Also have spent a lot of time at Snowbird. (Little Cottonwood Canyon was a half hour drive from my house.) Learned to ski at Solitude, skiied at Brighton a number of times.

Never bothered with Park City, too many tourists. That's why I liked Alta so much--there were out-of-towners there, but they understood they were in our world now. Besides, we knew that mountain so well that the only way they could find the good powder spots is if they got lost.

Hi,
of course it's completely impossible to go skiing in my country, and I don't understand much about it (just skiing on water)... But, I've been to some ski stations just for fun, and I thought that Alta Badia region, in Italy, was amazing. It's the South Tyrol. There are some REALLY small villages where you go skiing... I stayed in San Cassiano, but you can go to the other ones (Corvara, Colfosco, La Villa, Pedraces, La Valle) and the ski was quite nice (again: I DO NOT UNDERSTAND MUCH ABOUT SKIING, IT'S JUST A COMMENT ABOUT A NICE-SKIING-STATION-TO-A-BRAZILIAN-GUY)  Smile
I enjoyed the landscape, the hotels, the people, the history... Anyway, I thought this was the best one I've been to.

Check out Alta Badia website: http://www.altabadia.com

Rgds,
Julio
