Next Meetup

5th annual European Skiing & Boarding Adventure: in Aime la Plagne, French Alps
Next year, in 2019, we will be skiing and riding at the famous ski resort of Aime la Plagne in the French Alps from 10 - 17 March 2019. This trip is suitable for all levels of skier and rider: beginners, intermediate and advanced. ** Please read all details before RSVPing for this event ** La Plagne is a French ski area in the alpine valley of the Tarentaise (Savoie). Since 2003, La Plagne and the neighbouring resort of Les Arcs form Paradiski's ski area. La Plagne is the most popular ski resort in the world with more than 2.5 million visitors a season on average. La Plagne lies at altitudes between 3,250 metres (on the Glacier de la Chiaupe near the top of Bellecôte) and 1,250 metres (in the village of Montchavin). La Plagne has 100 square km of ski area spread across four communes (Aime, Bellentre, Champagny-en-Vanoise and Mâcot-la-Plagne). La Plagne has 225 kilometres of slopes (134 slopes: 15 black/expert, 30 red/advanced, 72 blue/intermediate, and 10 green/beginner), and a large off piste skiing area including Bellecôte's North Face. This will be the trip of a lifetime for some people, skiing at some of the most beautiful mountains in the world for six days, sampling local delicacies and local wines of the nearby regions. We will be staying at Club Med in Aime La Plagne (https://www.clubmed.ca/r/Aime-La-Plagne/y), a 3-Trident (aka 3-star) all-inclusive resort. Your stay includes accommodations, all meals at sumptuous buffets and/or other specialty restaurants offered by Club Med, all drinks, nightly shows, and lift tickets, too. There will be a ski guide and/or group lessons included for four full days and one half-day to help make the most of your ski experience (if you would like) and/or free skiing and boarding for all six days. Participants can optionally fly overseas a few days earlier to leisurely recover from jet lag while visiting a gateway city: this year we have chosen to explore the artistic city of Barcelona, Spain. We will organize the flights so that we fly in groups and all stay in the same hotel in the Barcelona, before moving on to France for our ski week. After our ski week, we will have the option of staying one or two more days in Geneva before flying back home. Please RSVP to add yourself to the waitlist if you are interested in joining us on this spectacular ski adventure. We can discuss any questions you may have, and put you in touch with the SPACY travel agent to help arrange your adventure when you are ready. Book your trip soon: There is no guarantee of availability, and latecomers may be disappointed. Prices and availability are usually better now, and your cost may go up if you book later on. Savings can be realized by sharing a room with another group member: If you want this, please let us know and we can coordinate your bookings with a suitable member. Some single occupancy rooms are available at the time of writing: if you want a private room book early, as they stop offering this once a certain occupancy threshold has been realized. After your reservations are confirmed, you will be added to the going list. Note: This trip is being organized in conjunction with the Ski NOW! Meetup group.

On weekends, we'll be skiing and boarding in winter; hiking, biking and roller blading in summer. On weeknights, indoor climbing, hill running or maybe a dinner, plus other events. Travel ideas include skiing in Europe or out West, hiking to Machu Picchu or the Dolomites, or a weekend nearby to kayak in the Thousand Islands.
