Girls first ski trip - help needed!

Hi all,

Im 23 and me and a friend are looking to book a week away for sometime in March 2009 - looks the cheapest time!

We have both explored dry slope but want to experience the real thing!
We have found a great deal in Serbia (not very exotic but i figure its ok for first time!)

What we really need is some great advice on what to expect and What to buy/hire.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards

Blue

Girl's first ski trip

I don't know about Serbia but Bulgaria seems to be popular and among the more affordable. It's very popular among the Brits; at least you would be among people who speak English (sort of!) (chuckling; I couldn't resist that). I am personaly looking into Bulgaria for the last part of Feb. and first part of March. I'm presently wondering how to safely transmit payment for reservations.

Hi girls, I wonder if you're all booked up by now?
If not I wanted to tell you about my new chalet opening this winter in St Gervais, an area perfect for beginners. I run a catered chalet for groups of four, so everything is very personal and flexible. It's not your bargain basement bulgaria-tyoe trip, but if you want your first impression of skiing to be its best, then check it out.

As for advice on what to buy/expect: I would definatley buy your own jackets/salopettes/goggles/hats/gloves/socks, then you know you like what you have, and its an incentive to go again next year! for cheap gear get yourselves to TK MAXX.

you will be able ot hire your ski equipment in resort, and as an apsolute beginner, its not that important that you spend loads on your skis- the cheapest ones in the shop will do you fine. but make sure that the boots are a very tight fit, not so tight they hurt, but not far off-if they are just a little bit too big, you will have much less control of your skis and the experience will be much less fun.

hope that helps, have a great time both of you!

You can tigten your boots as you ski, also, never let any man know where you are staying, just for safety.
