Dust off your kit, prepare for cold early winter conditions and the reappearance into the alpine of ‘The Clubbie’ - the feral alpinist that through the summer months adheres itself uncompromisingly to its two-wheeled steed, its wax-coated sea craft or sets its grip tightly around its fish-catching apparatus. Those things now cast aside and a summer of wanting now over, ‘The Clubbie’ is hungry for some winter action.
Dust off the board(s) and join them for our first turns of 2017!

October often presents a difficult choice between spending a day at the beach, riding a bike or sliding on snow. When there's enough snow, October offers high warmth, super-chilled corn skiing that's hard to beat.
