Verbier,Switzerland 2002 - Snowboarding in the Alps

Snowboarding in Austria was great , but last year a whole group of us decided to skiing/Snowboarding in the Alps, and to get a huge chalet for all of us. So in March 2002 , 14 of us headed over to Verbier in Switzerland for a weeks skiing. (Somehow I managed to get another week off work) We went with Skiworld and part of the deal was that we would all stay in 1 huge Chalet, complete with chalet staff, all meals and unlimited wine (excellent) The chalet was really beautiful, clean and in a great location near the slope. Verbier was quite warm, and the snow was not as good as it could have been, but higher up, the snow was excellent. To top it off, we had loads of snow on the last 3 days , and that made conditions excellent. Probably the best boarding I have ever had in my life.
The night life in Verbier is great too, with lots of 'Apre Ski' at the end of each day.
(Our Group name was 'Paula's passion' - consisting of Debbie, Loz, Dan, Me , Meg, Al , Michelle, Steve, Paula, Janelle, Kevin, Chris, Barry and Cherie)
