    We are off skiing in Feb when do you go ? we use our motorhome all the time in the winter months mainly rallying with Swift Owners :Smile:
    We need to get some rallys up on Motorhomefun now Jim has his own insurance ,we can rally almost anywhere even when sites are closed they open for rallys :thumb:
    Maybe we should arrange a meet at Upton Barn , Nuneaton , anyone interested ??:thumb: www.uptonbarn.co.uk

    winter use

    I am new to MH too and planning to test winter use in skiing area my fact finding trip is early december to French Alps and return by x'mas A long way to facts find but I will never know if having a MH to look after would spoils the fun of skiing until I try it. Destination will be Terentise valley , Alps A ski area I know quite well. If anyone wishes to join in Feel free to make contact

    :Smile: We have just booked for a week over xmas at Le Versoyen at Les Arcs for our first ever trip in Europe in our 5er and the first time ever away from home for xmas. Should be good we hope but the kids may have a different view nearer the time. For new year we are booked in at parc verger and then back in time for school. Really looking forward to it now and hope it goes to plan or planish

    yes i picked it as it appeared to have a very easy access up to it and the thought of dragging my 4 tonne 5er up a snow covered road was top of my list www.leversoyen.com

    It seams ok, has a free shuttle bus to the slopes and the owners seamed nice and helpful when we contacted them, suppose only time will tell, will have to get a fake xmas tree to put up in the 5er :Rofl1:
