grrrrrr

going skiing to kiztbuhel on the 7th, flybe the f%*()&ing wa*&^%ker not only tell me they want 45 to transport my ski's they want 15 each person to transport the luggage, am i getting a grumpy old sod?
just add a bit, flybe have just phoned and due to my uncontrollable ranting they've given me all the allowances for nothing, it seems that when i booked the flight in july last year i paid more than they are costing now, so how can they charge me more when i purchased them so long ago, i should have had the best price, grrrrrr, yes i know, grumpy old sod

Brilliant! Had a pair of K2's that were not too stiff for my poor old knees, great off piste and good at carving at a reasonable pace without flapping hysterically, certainly beats carrying all that crap around and getting ripped off at the "orange" check in desk!

Ms DHD & I flew with them last season, as part of a package holiday with Inghams. The check-in assistant wanted to charge us 20 per pair of skis, each way We were then asked if we also wanted to check-in any luggage This was the 8th week of the season, so they should have known what to expect of people going on a ski package holiday by then.

just got back today, skiing was great, snow was so deep i got pics of a couple of mate just off piste and the snow is up to there chests, looks so funny, took a real good tumble and bent a pole, so i got one pole that looks like a racing pole, we had a real good hotel called eidelwiess, what else, but what a good guy who owns it, there was 13 of us and our bar bill in the hotel was about 1200, i'll post some pics once i have all the memory stick back from everyone

Our trip to Winter Park was amazing at lots of different levels, but I have to say that the powder was the driest lightest powder I have ever skied in 40 years of skiing! ......... Now I know why Vail etc are so popular!
