    Good to see another 2 people from BrisVegas going on the trip. I have been overseas since October, and going home in Mid Feburary.

  • 13 Dec 2010 Krystle39 said


    Hey Elecia, are you going to be going by train the friday or sat morning? Theres a good chance I will be on the train from munich in the morning of Jan 8 so I will probably miss you by a day.Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> which is to bad it would be nice to have company on the train. Is everyone planing on taking lessons?

  • 14 Dec 2010 Debbie said


    I am totally taking lessons…haha…the three days for 4hrs a day. You?

  • 14 Dec 2010 Taylor said


    Hey all! Christian and I will be going by train from Munich as well although we’ll be doing the trip a few days earlier and going to Lech another ski village in Austria for 2 nights before we head to Hopfgarten on the morning of the 8th. The only experience i’ve had in the snow was on a skateboard deck down a slope when i was like 9. But i’m not planning on taking any lessons while there.. I figure half the fun will be had while eating **** down the slopes.. Is everyone skiing or snowboarding? Think i’m pretty keen to just snowboard. Only a few weeks to go!

  • 14 Dec 2010 Krystle39 said


    I dont plan on taking lessons, I have snowboarded a few times I’m just hoping there will be other people to go with that arnt cause snowboarding by myself would be lame. Taylor what made you guys choose Lech to go to?? I have a couple of days with a german friend before the 8th and we arnt sure if we are hitting munich up, another city or getting some more snowboarding in theres so many resorts there im not sure which one if we do

  • 17 Dec 2010 Elecia said


    Hey team!
    I’ve booked myself in for skiing lessons for 5 days i think. Pretty keen to try snowboarding as well… am thinking of just hiring one, getting a random to show me the basics then just trying it out… anyone wanna join?
    i’ve got an open train ticket from munich to hofgarten (i can get any trains on the dates) so i’ll be heading down morning of 7th and back the arvo of the 15th.
    oh and hello fellow Bris-Vegesians!

  • 17 Dec 2010 Taylor said


    We’re going to Lech to catch up with a friend of ours that was a german exchange student at the high school Christian and i went too. But yeah only staying there for 2 nights as its pretty damn expensive for accomodation.. We’ll probably stay in Munich for 2 nights after Amsterdam then head to Lech from there. But plans aren’t locked in yet.
