Got our annual lads trip to Zell in January.  This will be the third year and my skiing has got a bit better each time.

I'm tempted to do Zell in Feb/March, loved it there in the summer when I raced Ironman there, stunning place.

Itís the only ski resort Iíve ever been to, but itís lovely and very easy to get to.

We've decided to do our annual boys trip a couple of weeks later this season, so planning w/c 25th Jan.  Haven't decided where yet, after 2 years in Val D'Isere we fancy a change (although it is superb skiing) so are thinking of going back to Mayrhofen or somewhere new in Austria.  Gonna see if there are any Black Friday travel agent deals to go for before deciding.  Zell would be on the list!

We just do everything ourselves.  Flights from Stansted work really well, and you get to Zell for about lunch time.  Quite a few nice, reasonable hotels.  The town itself isn't that big, but enough decent bars for a good night out.

The Alps by train

https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2019/oct/12/20-best-alps-ski-resorts-by-train-rail-france-switzerland-austria-italy?CMP=share_btn_tw

There's a few of the ideas that have too many changes to make the trip feasible IMO but the trains direct to Bourg look like a better idea than driving

A nice dump of snow forecast for the Western Alps later this week.

A couple of friends of mine fly out in a few days for a season chalet hosting in La Plagne

Feck me, if this happens, it'll be an incredible start to the season in La Plagne
