    Many Snowboarder's / skiier's on SCN? Up in Scotland?

    Well the season is hopefully just round the corner.

    Many folk on here hoping to do a bit of boarding / skiing this season?

    I'm off the first week in Feb, we'll book it very late to ensure we get somewhere with decent conditions, most likely France. Been skiing for 25 years now. Did dabble with boarding in the late 90's but firmly a skier now. Never been up to Scotland - it's easier to get to France from the South East!

    Yeah, I've done Tignes and Val D'Isere a couple of times each. Was in La Plagne last Feb which had surprisingly good snow given the overall conditions.

    I was in Tignes in January, amazing pow pow! Also been to Val d'iseres and Valmorel a few times as well as a couple of place in Italy and Andorra. France is defo the best option for price and snow quality. Hoping to get away again this season but not booked anything yet. Got some shiney new skis that have yet to see any (real) snow! A few trips to Glenshee will be on the cards as well, had some amazing skiing there in the past

    Seeing we are forecast 10cm of snow north of the border, Cairngorm / Glencoe is looking alright.

    Bought the S3 for its Quattro, hope it get's me up boarding no bother!
