I am also Dutch. And indeed, it sucks to live in Holland and you have to wait every year to board a week, while you know there are so much people who can board every day.

Last week I visit La Joue du Loup (Superdevoluy). I really liked it there, nice pistes and the party's were also really nice haha. Onfortunately the funpark wasn't maintained.

Ooh and I have question. I really want to do a snowboard instructor course next year, but I really do not know where, does anyone have suggestions?

I am from Czech Republic, found World Snowboard Guide as a very reliable and complete source of information.

Hey there! I'm an Aussie living in Munich so doing a lot of day trips to the Austrian alps every weekend - we have had a good season so far (unlike last year - only three trips and snow all gone in THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY!!!). Looking forward to getting some holidays soon and making some longer trips further afield.

Here's hoping! If so I might be there too. Haven't been to Ellmau yet but going to check it out over the coming weeks.

Living near the alps is awesome!

So off to SkiWelt in a few hours
Heard that there was fresh snow this week( only a few cm) and there might be more today, fingers crossed, although I'm not to sure how much boarding I will get down as I did my back in on sunday and was in hospital and have been diagnosed with a lumbago, so been on heavy pain killers and it is still sometimes painful.... but hell, I don't get to board that often, so I'll just have to bit the grit


Is it just me or has the apres ski in austria died down a bit over the last few years? I know during the high season weeks( X-mas and feb school holidays), this won't be the case, but I've heard and seen a big change over the last few yrs. Although this weekend I'm with 7 mates, so we will be making the apres ski

So, Had a great weekend in the ski-welt area. Fantastic conditions, -20, blue skies with plenty of sun
Apres Ski has died, and is only great during the holidays, but we were with 6 guys, so made our own apres ski there.
the quality of the snow was fairly decent considering it hadn't snowed for 3 weeks.

Back there in 3 weeks

Already looking for a place for 20 of us for next yr
