It’s that time of year again, the time to start planning and booking your snow holiday. In case you are not a seasoned veteran of the slopes we are reminding you of some of the cool features here at skiing.ie. These tips will help to make sure that you and your friends will have the best skiing holiday ever.
Try out our skiing forum which is free to join, and is a great place to ask for and to impart tips about your skiing/snowboarding. We have some interesting discussions, like skiing injuries , videos and much more. Here you have an opportunity to meet the Irish Ski community, to organise trips and to get tips on the sport. The skiing forum feature is new for the 2008 season.
We even have added a snowboarding forum, so you “one ski people” don’t feel left out. There is a section on cool videos from youtube, and other great information.
This year we have started to build up our database of ski resort reviews. These contain details of recommendations and warnings for different resorts. Our members can have their say and let other people know how good or bad a place was. So if you want to vent or give praise, or you just want to get some recommendations, then this is the place to start looking.
Looking at some of the resorts across the Alps we see that some of them have started to get some decent amounts of snow. The temperatures are starting to get towards the negatives and the base for this ski season is being developed. For example Hintertux Glacier in Austria now has a fine 105cm of snow on the mountain ! Fingers crossed that this weather continues and it will turn out to be a snow packed season.
Over the next few weeks we will be publishing some articles, on a wide range of topics. If you have anything you would like covered, feel free to contact us and we’ll get right on it.
