Our options are very open at the moment. Haven't made any travel plans so just pondering over the possibilities with suitable conditions. Was told Switzerland had good snow as early as October this year so that could be one option. Read onthesnow.com that Livigno sounded interesting too, but haven't heard anything else about that place other than what I'd read on that page.
Still early days yet, but have to get the options going.
I know most of you guys have the luxury of grabbing your skis/boards and heading up whenever there's a dump, (green with envy!) but I'll just have to make do knowing that there'll be decent snow during my ski trips to keep us entertained and practiced until we can migrate! Just so we don't have a wasted trip. So any area with enough runs open that are not too icy would be great. Hubby and son do love the blacks, but I'm happy doing the easy to moderate blues. Enjoy skiing but not putting my life in danger.
If you have any info about general costs, that would be great too! We do usually mid-ranged self-contained apartments which are fairly comfortable, preferably near the slopes, and do our own cooking and laundry, can self-drive, don't really appreciate much night life, but we did like Heavenly, for its proximity to everything. We don't go for uber luxury unless its of good value because if we did have more budget, it would go into more nights for skiing, and shopping! And we do like the feeling of chilling out at 'home away from home'. And a good soak in the outdoor hot tub at the end of the day is always looked forward to!
