Ski buddies

Hi Everyone,
I live in the Boston area and like to ski in Switzerland and NH USA.
I will be visiting my sister in Sargans end of Feb to March and plan to ski many days. I just retired, a good skier, and like the Vallais and Graubuenden for skiing. I am looking forward to meet members of this forum, have a beer in Zuerich or Martigny and would very much enjoy the company of ski fans, downhill and X-country, for a fun time together.
Happy Fasnacht.

Koni

Re: Ski buddies

Hi Konibenz,
I might be too much of a beginner for you, but if you do not mind, I am keen to join because most people around me tend to be snowboarders and I only do skiing. (I live and work in Zurich area.)
I do downhill only, most slopes, but some slowly. I'm British so not such an expert.
Weekends would be better for me.

Re: Ski buddies

Hi nowis,
thanks for your fast response. I am new to Forum chat, so please forgive me if make mistakes.
I would love to get together with you and plan some skiing activities.
I will let yopu know details as soon as i book my flights to Zurich.
I love to ski at Flumserberg, Pizol, Davos, Lenzerheide, etc.
I hope we can meet in Zurich and plan some skiing.
Looking forward to see you

Koni

Re: Ski buddies

Mari-Catherine,

I am intrigued, why are you posting here?

I spend about 10 to 11 months in the Northeastern USA, between the Boston area and the White Mountains (Thornton, NH, to be precise). But I live for the few weeks I spend in Switzerland, in the summer. I do not ski, but hike year round.

How about you? All you say is that you live in NH, what, if any, is your relation to Switzerland?

Konibenz,

Welcome to EF, and my apologies for hijacking your thread. This is, I believe, the first time I have found two New Englanders posting in the same thread here!

Re: Ski buddies

Hi Again,
I simply googled "ski buddies nh" and the EF website with your post came up and so I replied. I am so sorry but I thought you skied and none of my friends in NH ski and I was hoping to meet some people who were into that. I have skied in Austria (Kitzbuhel) in 2002 and it was simply fabulous. I live in the central part of the state (Lakes Region-Laconia).

A better bet would be the New England & Northeast Ski Forums - AlpineZone Forums. There are times when the almighty Google does strange things

Re: Ski buddies

Thanks for the link...much appreciated! I am curious as to why you use the word "ski" in your post but you state that you don't ski afterall? Do you mean "hike" for "ski"...just curious as I know American/European lingo is different.

Cheers

Re: Ski buddies

Konibenz, Thanks for the reply. I have sent you a private message with some contact details.

Looks like you know more skiing places than me in Switzerland. Although I have been to Flumserburg more times than I remember, so I am keen to go somewhere else, but I can go again no problem.

I used to live in the old Hampshire, but that Hampshire did not have the hills you are talking about.
