What we're about

Welcome to Powder Junkies!

We are a fun and friendly bunch of skiers and boarders looking to make new snow-loving friends and book lots of holidays!

PJs works a bit differently to other meet-up groups: because we let you, our members, run the group! We encourage all members to advertise your own snow holidays on our site for free and get other members to join you - or you can join someone else's holiday! Members can arrange and advertise any type of snow-related event on our site - so if you fancy a session at an indoor snow dome or a night watching the latest Warren Miller film, or just a social down the pub to get to know other snow lovers, then go ahead and put this on our site!

IMPORTANT: any holiday advertised on our site must be not for profit or, if you are making a profit, we ask that you contribute towards our annual running costs.

(We will also arrange occasional holidays and socials too - but don't rely on us, this is YOUR snow meetup group, you can arrange what YOU want to do!)

Join us on Facebook too - you can chat, plan holidays, share photos, discuss destinations, whatever you like! https://www.facebook.com/groups/13576513658... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/135765136583354/)

Powder Junkies Moto: Meet, mingle and holiday!!!

How Powder Junkies works:

1. Fill out your profile so people can get to know you and put a photo up so we can recognise you at the meet-ups!

2. Have a look at the trips already on the site and RSVP to any you like the look of: http://www.meetup.com/Powder-Junkies/#upcom... (http://www.meetup.com/Powder-Junkies/#upcoming)

3. If you have a holiday or event you want people to join, please add it! This is a key part of how Powder Junkies works - events can be scheduled by any member, all we ask is the date and location must be filled out. If you don't yet know the date or location, use the message board to start a discussion instead: http://www.meetup.com/Powder-Junkies/messag... (http://www.meetup.com/Powder-Junkies/messages/boards/)

4. Come along to our socials to meet everyone!

How do I add an event?

It's very easy! We've even added some instructions to help you: https://www.meetup.com/Powder-Junkies/messages/boards/thread/28833302

We look forward to seeing you soon :-)

All the best,
PJs

A Week in Meribel! (date and resort tbc!)

Needs a location

This is organised by a buddy Meetup group, Brighton SnowSeekers. To RSVP and be part of the chat, please go to: https://www.meetup.com/Brighton-Snow-Seekers/events/255480041/ ---------------------- Ok guys let’s a get a trip booked! Talk at our last meetup seemed to come down to Lech and Meribel. As there seemed to be a preference amongst some for Meribel I’ve based my search mainly on that but am also really happy to go to Lech if people say they prefer that. Post your preference in the chat below NOW! I have detailed here below a week’s trip to Meribel, staying at Chalet Hotel Alba with Ski Total at a price of £949 per person. It can be an example or the one we go for, just let me know know preferences now. And if you don't want this option, please suggest an option you do want instead. If you are interested in this option, please state your preference for rooms in the chat. They'll be allocated in order of first come first served, and a deposit will need to be taken. The week with the most availability left was wk beg Sunday 3rd Feb so I have provisionally held rooms and flights for 10 people for this week. If however enough people would prefer different dates we can easily change that. Please see below the details of the deal on offer. If you would prefer: - a different resort - different hotel - different dates - different anything, please post in the chat below or on the Facebook page NOW. It would be good to reach a group consensus and book something soon before availability goes down too much, ideally reach an agreement by the end of the weekend if possible. The deal below is held for us until Monday 15th October at 4pm. To book I would need to take your deposit of £150 before then so I can pay them all together. The balance would be due 10 wks prior to departure and can be paid individually direct to SkiTotal. ——————————————————————————————— Ski Total - Chalet Hotel Alba £ 949pp (+ sup - discount) https://www.skitotal.com/chalets/chalet-hotel-alba/ Currently have 14 rooms available, of which 5 available for single use without 40% supplement (See further details below). After those 5 rooms are booked, can book a twin for single use but have to add 40% on to the £949. All rooms have own bathroom with WC & either shower or bath/shower SINGLE ROOM OPTIONS 3 rooms available for single usage (bunk beds) w no supplement plus 2 interconnecting twin rooms (suite) w shared bathrm between them at supplement of £56 pp I'm going for a single room, so count one of those as taken already. If necessary, I'd consider sharing the suite (shared bathroom) with someone, depending on who! ;-) SHARED ROOMS WITH BALCONY 2 of the shared rooms available have a balcony (+ £49 pp supplement) One is a twin and one is a twin with a sofa bed. HOW TO WORK OUT YOUR COST Based on my estimate of 10 people, we get a group reduction of £66.43 pp. So when working out your price, it’s £949 + any supplement for your room, minus £66.43 This includes room, food, transfer and flights from Gatwick to Chambery. The reduction might vary if there are more or less than 10 of us in the group.

Ski Panorama Canada in February

Needs a location

Its time to treat yourself to the Canada experience! Singlesport is skiing Panorama in February for ten days . The trip is organised by Ski Independence, it includes flights & is therefore ABTA covered We will be staying in luxury Condos so you can choose a single studio or a "shared" two bed unit, but as these have two beds & 2 baths the only shared space is the lounge. For convenience 10 breakfasts are included and 5 dinners in several different restaurants, this gives an opportunity to get to know the group & the various restaurants before making your own choice on the other 5 nights. We have included a day in Kicking Horse as well with transport & lift pass all organised Ski guiding is free with volunteer locals so you really get the best of the resort https://www.panoramaresort.com/explore/listing/mountain-friends When you sign up to request a place on this holiday I first of all put you in touch with our agent who knows the resort & will answer all your questions before you make your final commitment. Please click here for prices & further details https://www.singlesport.com/winter-holidays/panorama-canada-sun-3-february-2019-10-nights/ 23 guests booked currently & room for 30 and here are the details and prices of all our other ski holidays this season https://www.singlesport.com/winter-holidays/

Val d'Isere or Tignes UCPA

UCPA Val d'Isère

Hello PowderJunkies, Just checking to see if anyone’s up for a February Ski trip. I’ve never been to Val d'Isere or Tignes. So I’m planning to stay in the UCPA at either of these resorts, both are priced at £866. Trips are run from Saturday to Saturday, so if you guys are interested let’s MeetUp soon, confirm dates and make the online booking. It’s also down to the UCPA website’s availability. Both resorts have open dates presently, but as you know they can get sold out very quickly. UCPA: Hostel accommodation that provides three daily meals, ski equipment, ski pass, ski lessons. So the £866 is an all in price. Airport transfer from Geneva / Grenoble - coach from London Victoria is an added cost found on their web site & can be tagged on the booking. I will be driving, so if you don’t mind splitting transit costs then there is a seat for you. I had to add dates in the above field but I'm flexible during February. If this add builds up interest we can MeetUp to put in action, so inbox me your contact details and preferred travel dates. I know of a great spot near Leyton Underground Station. Check below website for full details, call me on:[masked] drew www.action-outdoors.co.uk www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFOWzF4gCI0
