    Ciao, willnotbe able to make it BUT I have a GREAT TIP for the BEST SKKING PLACE in Italy : SAN CASSIANO in the Dolomiti. Fantanstic slopes/ great food/ beautiful scenery...+ it is reachable by Flight on Innsbruck + train to Bressanone + bus. I do this regularly and the connections are perfect!
    I can help you all for other info if neccessary..

    I want to check out other sites as well because bizztravel.nl only allows for maximum of 5 people in group, my useless dutch doesn't help :( . I`m not trying to get ahead of myself here but I really think more than 5 people is a good possibility. since you are also almost in .. looking forward to what people say on Saturday.

    Hi Himanshu, just had a look at the Bizztravel.nl website for the skitrip you mentioned. I was hoping for a whole week of boarding but will go along with the group if more people prefer just a weekend. A couple of things I noticed; the price is good but it is travelling by coach from amsterdam which the website (route planner) says will take 11hrs. Also we get three days in the resort but only two nights not three, so might be worth checking the time we leave the resort on the last day? :)

    Ah yes, I was thinking maybe Arjan, but now I think I remember that he won't be able to make it.

    January 3, 2012

  • Himanshu B.

    That is why I said 3, but glad that you confirmed :)

    My boyfriend would come too if this trip works out.

    January 3, 2012

  • Himanshu B.

    Result ! :) so we are already 3 cause I'm also looking for a trip like this. I'll keep you posted.

    As soon as we hear more about if any other options were discussed at the planning session we would be willing to book. Please keep us informed!

  • Arjan

    Hi Himanshu, I think this idea is the right cliffhanger for setting up a core group! If a group of say 4 / 5 people takes the jump and books the trip, than other people might decide to go to the same area in the same timeframe :). Let's see what happens on Saturday :)

    Hey Himanshu, Thanks for doing so much research! We are definitely interested to see what comes out of the planning session, but that's a bit far for us to come from Den Bosch just for planning. Let us know what you decide/discover!

    January 3, 2012

  • Himanshu B.

    Hello All,
    I have found a very nice option for 26th Jan on bizztravel.nl
    3 day ski pass ( all slopes) included
    travel from amsterdam included
    3 night stay included
    slope 3500 mtrs ( Val Thorens )
    cost 300 Euro/per ( for a group of 5). (food and ski/snowboard equipment rental extra)
    and you will only need 1.5 - 2 days off work
    This is one of the options. If this excites you please do come on Saturday, we can look more and maybe find an even better option.

    I wont make it on the trip itselve - but will make it to the planning meetup! For the sake of the good time, and because of adding some expertize when it comes to how to use social media in general and meetup in specific...

    Hey Himanshu, I meeting friends over from Germany, saturday evening but we can still have a chat during the indoor climbing session on the same day. I will check out some resorts/prices before then and will make a few suggestions for you to consider with everyone in the evening. :)

    January 2, 2012

  • Himanshu B.

    Hi Jagdeep,
    This is the date for meeting in Amsterdam. for organizing things, like finalizing the location and dates of travel etc. Travel will still be around the end of january..

    January 2, 2012

  • Jagdeep S.

    hey Himanshu, Is the date fixed now. I thought that it would be at the end of January as planned earlier ???

    January 2, 2012

  • Himanshu B.

    Thanks for your interest. Soon I will ask everyone to come to a common place one evening so we can discuss the details. Why don't you ask your friends to also sign up here. We will be looking for a cheap and good destinations. Maybe they have some ideas as well.

    December 30, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    Sounds good. See you there. Email me your number @ [masked]

    Himanshu, we are both going to the New Years Eve party on Saturday, so maybe we can have a chat about the trip then?

    December 29, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    Hello Michael,
    I`m not in contact with NearlyDutchDan. maybe you can forward this meetup to him, I`m sure he will have some good ideas for the trip. I will have no issues combining this with him if he is also planning something similar.

    PS: don't forget to RSVP here :)

    Thanks,
    Himanshu.

    Himanshu, are you considering linking up this trip with the Val Thorens trip arranged by NearlyDutchDan? It seemed like that was your initial plan? I previously had a week of boarding in Meribel and headed over to Val Thorens, one of the days; the three valleys is a very good area.
    I recall the transfer coach got stuck in the snow at Courchevel and we had to transfer to a smaller bus to get to the resort :)

    Sorry!! I've changed it back. I've made the small changes, the event now is a planning meetup... A meetup that takes place before leaving....

    December 28, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    Arjan the date I had set was 28th january, not the 8th you made it closer :)

    December 28, 2011

  • Arjan

    A OK. It is possible to change a date, but you can't delete it. In order to avoid people from thinking the trip will be around January 8, I'll change the set up of this event just a bit.

    December 28, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    The date is just tentative. it can be and probably will be moved to February..

    December 28, 2011

  • Arjan

    BTW I know nothing about wintersport other than ice skating, having that said, a good place to go is a place where a large number of people will find what they are looking for. This means more people will opt in on the ski trip. It also helps to communicate how much people in fact BOOKED. January 28 is pretty soon for a holliday, so.... Keep on moving :)

    December 28, 2011

  • Arjan

    Maybe that's how the market works at this moment? I can see you already picked a date, so the next step is to talk about a destination. Its better talk about it than to preselect one. You as the person in charge of the initiative should pick the destination, but idea's might help....

    December 28, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    Hi,
    The following website seems to have some very sweet deals. Although I`m unable to select less than 7 days trip. http://www.skihorizon.co.uk/ski-packages

    December 28, 2011

  • Arjan

    Maybe it's an idea to book a trip with a group and at the same time post links about other possibilitees to go to the same area in the same timeframe, but for a bit shorter or longer time as the group that books a trip together...

    December 28, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    expected Duration of the trip.
    4-7 days.

    December 27, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    Location Option 2)
    http://wintersport.sunweb.nl/miniski.
    I don't know much about this location yet, but it was suggested by fellow ski Junkie! Emily Hansen :)
    This looks quite cheaper than the first option. But I don't have information about the slopes. ( mainly cause my dutch is really really good :) ) do check it out

    December 27, 2011

  • Himanshu B.

    Locatin Option 1)
    http://www.tulpenhaus.com/prijzenenbeschikbaarheid.html

    I will get 10% discount here on the accommodation. I have been here in the start of the year. Its really good for intermediate-seasoned skiers . the map of the slopes can be found here.

    (note: the discount is because my ex-boss owns the place :) )
