    We are going back to Val T in the feb half term, we have about 4 or 5 vans at the moment. Going to put it in the calendar in a few weeks in case anyone else would like to join in.

    Just saving up the cash now, :RollEyes:

    We're both snowboarders. Can we not do the extremely tiresome skier v snowboarder discussion please... (bound to be a red rag to someone).

    The wife is keen to do a trip with the MH, BUt as far as I can tell you pretty much need a generator, and everything else such as a place to stay,water, waste disposal are very much a lottery unless you book a proper site. In which case unless you're able to spend more than 2 weeks out there you'll not gain anything over flying and staying in a hotel except for he experience.

    I'm a big fan of the US for winter sports, particularly Utah. I'm not altogether convinced.

    Sell me on it.
