/ How to find a ski partner/friend/group?
I've been skiing only once before for a two week holiday, but have finally become rich enough to warrant going again. I want to head out in around February for 10 days in the Alps, but don't know anyone to go with.
I can get down reds at the moment (or could at the time!) and am keep to push my level and become a better skier with the aim to do some ski mountaineering at some point in coming years.
What does everyone suggest I do?
Post in the skiing forum?
I usually go on my own and do both chalet and hotel based holidays. Chose a ski company that offers an "ambassador" or similar "get to know the area" service. You can chose a group of similar level skiers and go out with them. This way you will quickly meet a nucleus of people of similar ability and generally like minded people.
Otherwise go for a dedicated singles/solo holiday. Most emphasise that they are not a dating agency, just a means of allowing solo skiers to meet.
