Wintersport (Edition II)

  • No location was chosen

  • I could see that many of us would be interested in skiiing/snowboarding as the one organized for February is already closed. Not sure if it's realistic to make bookings for March for a reasonable price. Anyone interested in joining me and has tips where to go?

Join or login to comment.

    Hello All, would snowworld be an option for a weekend? It's in NL and said to be the largest indoor wintersport complex in Europe. They also have a hotel nearby. http://m.snowworld.com/en Let me know if anyone of you is interested, I am planning to spend a weekend there in March. Margareta

      Any indoor ski dome would only be worth going for one day ... It tends to get boring after a couple of runs already. If Winterberg has still some snow left it might be worth going there instead.

    I'm a maybe -- But it depends on the level of the group (ie I want to challange myself). Would probably snowboard. On a snowboard will try all but the most extreme routes with deep moguls.

    It would be good to do a long weekend - say, 4 days - instead of a full week. Feb 27 - Mar 3 would be ideal for me.

  • Krisztina Kovari removed the location. It was Chamonix Mont Blanc

    Hi All, this meetup could be any time and anywhere (with snow) and for any length. I was trying to suggest something based on you comments/recommendations. I guess everyone who joined has the intention to ski/snowboard. So if that's still the case, you could tell what your ideas are about dates (later in March?), duration, location, budget and what the most important thing is for you amongst all. I'm also checking Arke for arranged holiday, later in March they can have cheaper options...

    Hi people, I have to sign out, because one week is too much for me. I thought this is a weekend adventure.
    Sorry for that.

    Hey Krisztina, this schedule interferes with a work obligation so as of now I won't be able to attend. I'm going to see if I can move some things around but I'm not holding my breath.

    Hi Krisztine, regarding the car, its not rental but arranged transfer 60-70pp for return. I need to check with work i can take off

    January 21, 2013

  • Krisztina K.

    Budget wise it would be something like: 120 -flight (without equipment)[masked] - accommodation (depends on the number of us and if we find the cheapest best place. your input is welcome)
    70 - equipment rental for a week (rough guess)
    200 - 6 day ski pass (rough guess)
    60-70- car rental (based on Denises input)
    ALL:[masked] euros. If you have better ideas, more accurate numbers/info, please let me know. If you like what you see, please post first that we can count on you and once you booked the flight, also confirm that. I would suggest the one that leave at 06.55 on the 8th and comes back at 9.20 or at 14.40. There are only a couple of seats left, so action needs to be taken fast.

    Hi All, I think we should fly to Geneva as you suggested, tickets need to be bought individually asap. They are around 104 euros. We also need 2 people to drive the rental cars, if we are the 8 of us. Anyone? Or a minivan would do? I also checked some accommodations in the area on airbnb. There is a good looking chalet at the ski lift for 1900 per week, but if we mind the budget there is one for 1200 as well but it'a a bit far away from everything. And I guess there are more options/sites, I thought to see first who is interested after we have the main point of interest.

    Hi Guys, So it's happening:) I'll try to do some research this weekend about the options and be a bit more precise about the trip. Date (1 week at the end of February, beginning March?), Location (France, Italy?), Transport (Plane, Cars?), Costs. If you have any (more) preferences, tips on any of these ones, please let me know. I think it would be great to have a group of 6-8 people.

  • Ben W.

    I'd be into going but have no input as to where to go. Chamonix gets great reviews.

    Hi, flights to Geneva are relatively reasonable (99e). Next week im going to Mont Blanc but there are many locations you could go. Transport is approx 1hrs going to a nice ski area (60-70e sharing or private). For France http://en.ski-france.com

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
