Yes, it's a great place to go - hope you've got plenty of cash for Dick's Tea Bar etc... Maybe not the greatest place to start as the runs are fairly aggressively rated - a lot of the greens would be blues, blues reds and so on elsewhere. By the end of the week you should try to make it down La Face Olympic run into the village
Ok.... here is some advice.. Buy all the clothing coz you dont know where hired stuff has been ... If i were you i wouldnt buy any boots at this stage coz you dont know if you are going to stick with ski's or a board.Personally i preffer boarding an you can lean a lot more and near enough have your body parralel with the ground....Too much and you grate your face Once you have decided what you like and go again then buy boots, I have ski boots and board boots as they were made especially for my feet and dont get aches and pains as with hired stuff. If i were you DONT to a dry slope. Try finding an indoor slope with real snow. I think there is one in Milton Keynes. Make sure you go 3 or 4 times. Only reason why i say dont go to a dry slope is that there is a HUUUGE difference between dry stuff and the real macoy. Hope you enjoy boys. Only wish i could come with you.
Stayed at Tignes Last year and skied across a few times. Dont do the Face once you get off the First goat run bit you get to a edge of a slope as high as a block of flats very steep. Walked into a bar after skiing it and was smoking like a race horse on a cold day I am off to Italy in Two days time Passo Tonale.
Could very well be...... I am active on (mostly dutch) snowboard forums now and then. I use this alias on all boards I post on.
btw... I'd advice you to buy only small stuff at first (like snowgoggles and gloves (you NEED good gloves, believe me!!). I have used a sweater and a fleece sweater over eachother the first few times. It's cheap and if you do not know for sure you are going to go boarding/skiing a lot, you should not invest.
Sadly I missed the Skyline Vs GTR event (gearbox issues :() but got to go and watch my son Karting at Hooton Park instead. (IAME Cadet)
Got a pleasant surprise of how much he's come on in the past couple of weeks whilst I was abroad, he gets some fantastic tuition from the team.
Not bad for a...
Right then, calling all the IT guys on here, it's that time again when I need a new laptop so before I go ahead and get any old one I find I thought I'd get some opinions on here first!
It'll be used for just general use and nothing too taxing, internet, emails, watching movies, streaming etc...
My opinion. I was watching the Grand Tour a couple of days ago where the trio drove an Aston Martin DBS, BMW 850i, and the Bentley. The Aston and Bimmer both looked appalling :puke: I was just blown away at how the styling of the cars just got bland and it made me realize that new cars suck ass...
