Obviously we suggest coming away with us and not even thinking about anything (or anybody) else! But we appreciate that there are other places to ski / board and we are confident that we’re pretty good at what we do so here’s a few other places / companies / forums you might be interested in…
Most chalet companies take solo travellers – but often you have to pay a supplement or you are in a chalet with families (think screaming kids), or you are in a hotel where it’s all too easy just to sit in your room and watch the telly.
Find a company like ours that specialise is singles ski / snowboarding holidays and solo travel – there aren’t many, basically us and Cold Fusion in Chamonix. There is also The Ski Gathering which is a collective of chalet companies that open their doors to solo travellers on certain dates and in several different resorts. Let us know who else we should see as competition! 🙂
The forums are a great place to find info on singles ski trips – you can join groups, some of the sites organise their own trips;
Billy Snow Mates is Facebook based and has loads of followers. A friendly (mainly snowboarder) group answers questions real quick about everything and anything – they have regular meetups at the various snow centres in the UK and have ‘Billy Bashes’ during the winter.
Snowheads is a forum and has a specific section for single skiers looking for ski buddies. It has a huge membership and pretty much any snow question you have can be or will already have been asked here. They also run ‘ bashes’ (not quite sure why the word ‘bash’ is so popular) and get big numbers going, skiers and boarders.
J2Ski is a great forum, I think quite ‘ski’ focused. They also have a solo skier thread. No bashes as yet – but they do have quite good forecasting including a ‘powder alarm’ which I love landing in my inbox. Exciting!!
MeetUp is a great website for finding buddies in all kinds of activities – from hiking to ultimate frisbee, from knitting to partying and of course skiing / snowboarding. You could even start up your own MeetUp and end up skiing / boarding for FREE! (click here for more info)
Solo ski trips are ace – a brilliant way to meet new like-minded, life-long friends. Don’t delay, just do it!
