    We have a few fellas from work going and I am mighty jealous. I was looking at a map of the route and it looks awesome fun.

    Chamonix June 24-29 with my bro

    Morzine August bank holiday weekend with a bunch of lawyers (lifts close on 31 Aug though…hope they run up to 31 Aug inclusive otherwise it's one day in Chatel and then two on the Pleney

    Then possibly gearing up to a Les Arcs trip in September but I bet that by the time I've rallied the crew for it all the spots in the chalet will be taken in which case I'll be soloing

    My favourite thing about Les Arcs is taking the black run from the bottom of the Avalanche down to Bourg, getting a McDonalds, eating it on the funicular back up, and then just repeating…all day…ride – burger – lift ride – 9 mcnuggets – lift – ride – mcflurry – lift – ride – muffin – lift

    Les Arcs, first week in August and also first proper Alpine riding. I'll be riding on my own after a couple of days, not too fussed though. Really looking forward to it, i just hope the weather stays kind for my wife who will mostly be lounging around by the pool.

    Andorra, les Angles, La Molina pretty much all of August

    Not the Alps but chairlifts, mountains and probably better weather
