    Cool Snow sports!

    So we all share love for our cars but wondered if many people on here were into any snow sports? Skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross country, walking etc....

    I'm a skier myself- have skied the last 8 years and have done two working seasons in Austria during the winter and Switzerland in the summer between.

    Anyone getting away this year or were away last? I'm heading out to Les 2 Alpes on Satruday... never been before and can't wait!

    Hope to find some fellow snow bums among the forum!

    This is awesome- that'll be some trip! I want to ski America & Canada but haven't yet found myself in the situation to do so... I will get out there!!

    The epic pass sounds spot on. Lucky you 😃

    You much of a powder monkey? Dumping a fresh 2 meters before we get to Les 2 Alpes so I reckon my big skis will be coming with me this year.

    Snowboarder.

    I'm going Les Arcs in February with my mate. He goes away at least once a year and we used to board regularly a few years back. I sold all my gear and few years back and I haven't done it for a while. I'm looking forward to getting out there in 6 weeks!

    The best place I've been is Banff in Canada. Unbelievable for boarding and such a nice place to spend a couple of weeks.

    Banff is ok, when I when it was extremely cold - biggest issue is that you have to take transport to Sunshine (20 mins away) and Lake Louise (45 mins away).

    Japan is something else- my friend took a trip out there and stayed for the season. The amount of snow they had was just incredible... was so jealous!!

    I've only ever tried snowboarding once and didn't have the patience to learn from the beginning as I could already ski... so the board quickly left my feet and was back on my two planks .. Snowbombing looks awesome- I've never been but would love to go.
    How did you like Les Deux Alpes? That's where I'm flying out to tomorrow
    Been all over in Austria- worked in Saalbach/Hinterglemm, the Skiwelt (stayed in Söll), St Anton, Niederau/Oberau, Kitzbühel, Zell am See/Kaprun... Loved it in Austria.

    Well it's great to hear you're getting back into it- as you well know it's all like riding a bike... you'll quickly get used to it (sitting on your ar** )
    Nothing beats the scenery of any mountain area... It's all absolutely stunning!

    Bought some Bollé goggles today but I'm having to hire a board and boots because I got rid of mine a long time ago.
