    Chap at work currently looking at options for his honeymoon next year. They’re not minted but having a simple wedding and reception for a few friends/family and then going on the ski trip of a lifetime. Anyway, it promoted a vicarious-dream-holiday conversation at work!

    I know there are some silly prices heli-from-boat type setups in Alaska but within reason, where would you head?

    For me, probably Canada, somewhere like Revelstoke, classy lodge with a combo of heli and cat trips 🙂

    Purchase big fat pair of powder skis, learn to ski waist deep powder, book trip to Japan.

    Canada for the motorized options if in the price range but I would also seriously think about Hokkaido in Japan. I think the snow is of better quality and more guaranteed in Japan compared to British Columbia.

    For me my dream ski trips involve back country ski touring in a remote lodge and not staying a town but $$$$. Revy is a good option though.

    Yep, as above, for a really different and challenging experience, a pair of massively fat waterski like planks and a ticket to Japan.

    Self-supported cross country ski trek in Norway please. Not as a honeymoon, though.

    This’d be good bet. http://boulderhutadventures.com/philosophy/ Heli in or tour in, week in a hut in the middle of area half the size of Val D’Isere/Tignes. Simple living, wood fired hot tub. Possibly a bit communal for a honeymoon, though!

    My dream trip would be flying to San Diego, buying a van, spending the winter travelling up the Rockies, April in AK, then spend the summer driving down the West Coast, surfing. Maybe with a foray inland for biking and climbing.

    We did a 2 week Rockies roadtrip taking in Fernie, Panorama, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Jasper, Lake Louise and Sunshine. We booked it all independently, getting some excellent deals ($79 ski ‘n’ stay). Self drive, 2 days at each resort. We went 1st 2 weeks in April 2010, and got excellent fresh snow everywhere apart from Panorama, plus FANTASTIC dawn/dusk drives up/down the Icefields Parkway with avalanches rolling down the mountiansides.

    We got back to Calgary just as the Ash Cloud struck, so filled in time with some mountain biking…

    Winner.

    No but Lindsey vonn does

    Hmmm, got me thinking and daydreaming now 🙂 We’re off to Japan in 15 hopefully, but do like the heli in to a private backcountry lodge option! And also the self drive drive up the west coast following the snow for a winter 🙂

    Mrs Clubber and I went skiing for honeymoon – around this time of year. We looked at Canada and the US but rejected Canada as it was going to be too cold at this time of year. We chose Breckenridge which was brilliant. Stayed at the Beaver Run Resort (!) which is right on the ski slopes and was a great place to stay. The snow was fantastic, the slopes are great and the US experience was brilliant with ski guides available to help you find the best slopes / conditions /etc.

    Also, with the Breckenridge ski pass you can ski at other places so we went to Keystone and Vail too for a bit of variety. In addition, we did a dog sled ride and a snowmobile trip which were both excellent.

    Restaurants in Breckenridge are good – lots of good food and very well priced compared to say European ski resorts.

    Oh and there’s a Pearl Izumi outlet store nearby at Silverthorne 🙂

    Hokkaido followed by some time touring around Japan
    Anything involving a helicopter in BC or Tetons
    Kamchatka for something a little more edgy
    XScape at Castleford for a wet Wednesday afternoon

    Honeymoon….prob won’t go far wrong with Whistler as it has great skiing along with all the nice things they may want on a honeymoon. A night in Vancouver always goes down well too.

    Me though; Lyngen Alps in Norway with piste to powder. Luxury lodge in the middle of nowhere, skin up from sea level and ski allllllll the way back down.

    Japan has always appealed.
    The only negative I have heard is from somebody who said that she learnt to board there and it was necessary to check that there wasn’t somebody right next to you before making a move. I guess that is based on a resort near Tokyo and not a more remote resort???
