Hey Kate, I'm going too :)
I'm Jennifer, 33, living in West Berkshire. I learnt to ski last year in New Zealand (tried snowboarding too but I'm terrible) and then after 5 days of fun, spent the next 4 weeks in plaster! I tried Cross Country Skiing when I was a teenager, but only once! Looking forward to trying out all the other activites though
Hi I'm Sandra and I'm really looking forward to the next adventure although not the early flight!!!
I went on the x-country skiing trip to Dobbiacco in January and loved it but I thought I'd try a bit of everything in 2014. I've had a few ski lessons and I'm not really getting the hang of it yet so plenty of padding needed me thinks! Sledging has got to be the most fun?
Looking forward also to meeting everyone
Ooh lots of us going on this trip and we seem to be of a similar standard/lack of standard. Looking forward to meeting and falling over on the mountains with you all :)
I'll be taking plenty of ibuprofen gel and strapping for my aching joints! I'm off to hunt out some new ski wear tonight, looks like my teenage ones haven't survived (both physically and stylishly!)
I too think I'll be managing the saunas just fine - and the thermal pool afternoon!
Sandra - the flight time is horrible isn't it? I'll be staying at the airport overnight as there's no chance of me making it otherwise! Is everyone else on the group flight?
I'm staying at the Gatwick Holiday Inn , I only live an hour away but couldn't bear the thought of driving down so early! I'll sleep in my boots ;)
Any luck with the ski wear? Soooo pricey!
I've managed to pick up some bargains in TKMaxx, not my first, or second choice of colour, but they were cheap and they're waterproof! Unlike my actual waterproofs (which was my backup plan) which proved ineffective against the current weather! Like Kate, I wanted a bit of snow to put everything through its paces! No judging the colour of my skiwear - you'll definitely not miss me on the slopes :)
I've stayed at the Gatwick Travelodge before and it's so much easier than trying to get the airport early! Undecided where I'll stay this time, it'll come down to whatever is cheapest (possibly a chair in arrivals, I've heard it's pretty good as far as airport sleeping goes, and there's a 24 hour M&S!)
I just want it to be February now!
Yep I'm checked in and I've started packing and I'm going with the layer up version too, don't want to fork out on a ski jacket! Keeping an eye on the snow reports, looks like we could do with a dumping between now and Saturday so lots of snow dancing everyone :)
Very excited , good luck with the sleepover ladies and see you Saturday!
