Took over running this group coz my friends always say, "yes, they'll go snowboarding/ski-ing with us" but something always came up, so...hopefully will meet some friends here who we can go on great hols with, anything from budget to the more exotic.
been ski-ing and boarding for 9 years now, boarding for the last 5. Comefortable on reds, and blacks if there's lots of powder. I also run Snowcode ( snow + developers + party = snowcode ) www.meetup.com/snowcode.
I run snowcode and profit from that goes back into running the events. I don't earn commission in any shape or form for any events I will be promoting to the London Ski & Snowboarding group, this is just for fun and to meet people.
I'm an Iglu ski fan ( igluski.com ) very useful for a small group of people 2 to 4, and useless for a large group. Large groups I use personal contacts, word of mouth as well as go to trade shows to meet chalet owners directly.

It was a great opportunity to meet lots of different people with some very different ideas about ski and snowboard holidays, and have now made plans to arrange at least 1 more budget trip at the end of the season with a group of guys that I've now met and would enjoy going on a trip with.
Hi Alan, I haven't been to any of your meetups yet but I am thinking of getting involved. I am at a loose end this Christmas and would like to organise a last minute-ish Christams ski/board week anywhere in the alps. Christmas week was heavely discounted about now last year and I expect the same will happen this year. Cheers. David
The Borough Bar 2 minutes walk from London Bridge is excellent for Meetups. I recently went their with the Meetup Scuba Diving group. The Bar had a section for the Meetup organisation. I recommend going their and checking it out first.
Hi Alan there's no table reserved at detroit....
hello i would like to come to wednesdays event but ive got another engagement. I would like to come to this trip but was wondering what the overall cost would be? This would help me decide if i want to go or not.
hi there, would love to join in on a snow wkend or wk! keep me posted. also, would love to meet the group soon!
Hi Alan, cheers for the greeting. Plenty of surf trips going on now Winter is approaching. Feel free to add yourself to the London Surfers for updates. Cheers
Can it beat the 600pound all inclusive plus instructor?! Haha, ok I'll wait for Friday's announcement :)
Ya but I'm not sure if I'm going on the CS trip anymore. I found a 600pounds everything inclusive 7 day ski trip to Chamonix with ski instructor also!! That price is for new years week with www.action-outdoors.co.uk.
Hey Alan, I hope so too and that your ski trip in Les Gets turns out great, organizing is a lot of work and sometimes madening but there is a lot of advantages like choosing the master bedroom (Can't think of anything else eeeek) hehe
