Well B-well - do you know something we don't?
Not much snow anywhere in Europe at the moment - but it can change very quickly - I hope so - I have a season lift pass for Grand Massif area - usually good snow record there - keep looking at snow forecasts as though looking will make any difference?
We don't go out there till begining Jan so still time yet

Pretty much the same in most places. No real depth until over about 2000m.

There will be skiing but, but no white Christmas scenes on the valley floor at this rate.

We're new to this - only got our RV 3 months ago but are keen skiers and were wondering if the RV is ok in colder climates. Any help would be appreciated as it would be great to get some weekends in Scotland skiing as well as 2/3 weeks in Europe if possible.

It might be worth posing this question on a new thread to get a few more answers.

I haven't a clue about Yank construction methods!!!!!!

hi guys,
I know Rory (Forrest boy) had an RV previously but wouldn't take it skiing as he said they were cold. In the years we have been going and its many now, I have never seen an RV at any of the resorts we have been too
