2011/12 Europe Trips
There's a distinct lack of activity in this forum. Let's do something about it!

So, what trips are you guys planning for the following season, and to where?

As for me, I'm going to:

Laax, Switzerland (long weekend)
Val Thorens, France (week)
Mayrhofen, Austria (week)
Zermatt, Switzerland (week)

... in that order.

Zermatt is my favourite resort, so I always look forward to going there. I've heard good things about VT and Mayrhofen (Austria is amazing), so I'm very excited to be heading there, too.

Laax was a last-minute spur of the moment booking, but I've only heard good things.

I will probably go to Mayrhofen for a week. That is if i can convince some friends that it's better than some random france resort.

I'll probably be going to Avoriaz, Portes du Soleil =)
Looking forward to it very much, i've also been there 2 years back, 650km of slopes yea! And dont forget about the sweet park in Avoriaz ;)

I'm hoping to go to mayrhofen aswell, the problem is transportation... oh well, i'll work something out!

zermatt is kick ass!! Just trying to get myself a spare weekend to get over as its only a couple of hours from here:D

Maaan, who would say a bad opinion about Val Thorens?;)
I mean there can be an inconvenience if You stay in the village of Orelle, cos it's in the very end (or beginning) of the ski area and it'll be a problem to go to the Courchevel valley. You'll get there, but won't have too much time to have fun there unless you'd stay there overnight..

I'm looking at going to Zermatt/Cervinia, I love the idea of a multiple week trip, visiting various resorts, unfortunately I'd probably be the only one keen.

Hoping to head to Austria, at least my missus and I are looking for work as a chalet host couple, which will mean we get to ride all season:thumbsup:
I have heard things about St Anton Am Arlberg, it will chew you up and spit you out as far as apré ski goes:D From what a read, it has a reputation.....but I am going for the snow, not the nightlife.......;)

St. Anton is great. I thought Ischgl (also Austria) had the more crazy nightlife, but St. Anton is definitely one of the best places I've been to for aprés. Mooserwirt is the place to go :D

The off-piste is amazing, too.

Will be hanging out in Fiss, Austria for the whole season. Has anyone ever been there and got stories to tell? I will of course offer my 2 cents as and when I have stories to tell. Lets try and get this West Europe section going a bit:D:thumbsup: Too many tumble weeds blowing around.....

Heading out to Morzine in France (Portes du Soleil) in two weeks. My first trip as I'm a noob but can't wait!

Also intending to do another trip in Feb 12 but not sure where.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 12:34 PM.
