Hi,

Tamas Foldenyi and me would like to join you. He is a first time skier, I have about one week experience. We prefer the train at 8:04.
How many of you plan to take beginner ski lessons?

Best regards,
Peter

Hi all,
 
I will be there (as per earlier email) as a snowboarder. I'm almost a beginner (just 2 days experience so far) so I've arranged for myself 2hrs tuition through boardlocal to get me started again, so I expect I will be based at Klostermatte. The 08.04 train is best for me too so I will see you all under the angel at 07.45.
 
Looking forward to it!
 
Thanks,
Richard

I might join to with another austrian friend. We are intermediate skiiers.
I cannot promise right now, cause I have to talk to my friend first and also see how long the party on Saturday is :o)
Anyway, I will contact you if we join!
Sandra

08.04 - 10.12

There are some indirect trains inbetween these times.

I've spoken to Chloe and we think Sunday might be a better day to go since nothing is open in Zurich on Sundays. Also allows us to go out Friday night! All the ski resorts will cost roughly the same price and the train leaves around the same time, I therefore suggest we go to Engelberg, Chloe also seems keen also. What do you think? You need to make sure Harry is keen to join us. I may have someone else interested in coming but he can ski.
 
See you soon
 
Jayne
