Revision #1 (Last edited: 16/01/2018 @ 15:02)
We're off on another powder mission!
Does anyone fancy a road trip to the Alps at the end of January?

We are 2 serious off-piste snowboarders who like a good snow hols - but make no mistake
we're there for the snowboarding. We're not out till the early hours drinking in the local bars.



We have confirmed we'll be driving to the Beaufort region in the Alps on Friday 26th Jan.
There are 2 of us in the car, so we have room for another 2 - no matter if you are skiiers or boarders, we really don't mind!
We'll share the ferry, fuel and accomodation costs.

- Leaving on the 8pm ferry from Dover, Fri 26th Jan
- Driving overnight to Beaufort (typically arrive about 10am on the Saturday)
- Returning the weekend of 3rd / 4th Feb (could be Saturday or Sunday)

- We may possibly have room in our self-catering accomodation for 2 people, if you want to be in Beaufort too
(Lift pass is likely to be included in the price of accomodation)

- Option to join us on a guided off-piste week (costs extra £500pp), or you can simply do your thing around the Beaufort/Areches ski area if you are not keen to commit to the extreme.

Chuck me a private message or reply here if you are interested!

In reply to post #1...
Did this happen? Well it sure did.

After 3 sunny days with pretty hard off-piste conditions the skies emptied a good foot of fresh at the bottom of the mountain, and even more up top. So the trip was a full mix of on-piste hard carving, exploring, hitting the snowpark, and finally riding the floaty smokey loveliness itself!
A local told us we'd hit the very best day of conditions of the season so far, as despite there being an absolute ton of snow since Xmas, warm temperatures had destroyed things soon after the previous snowfalls.

Obviously we have a load of video editing to do now, but here's a little snippet or two:
