I feel special, sandwiched between both of you on CP60!! Anybody else in for the April course? Oh, and does anybody know how hard SQ/Emirates will laugh at me for trying to take skis to NZ?......

If you can get them through the melee that is Terminal 3 at Heathrow, I'd say you deserve to take them.

Presumably there'll be an excess charge to pay, I'd check with the airline before you go. You'll probably find it cheaper to just hire the gear out there though; plus, you'll be reasonably busy out there so probably won't get a great amount of use out of them anyway.

I'd second what Mr Keates said, leave the ski's in the uk! The skiing at Whakapapa is not too bad but there are a lot of rocks around - I definitely slightly damaged the skis I hired when I went off piste. Plus the season is not that long so you won't get that many opportunities to get down there. Last season started in June but the snow was crap until about the middle July. By the middle of September the snow was getting pretty thin again so its only about 8-10 weeks. The South Island resorts do have longer seasons but I highly doubt you will get too many opportunities to get down there.

What you can do is when you go to Whakapapa, buy a 5 day lift pass (can be used any 5 days in the season). Ski hire is about 9 per day I think.

Cheers for the info!
I managed to munch rocks today even when I stayed ON piste (Switzerland). Honestly, this global warming. They'll be talking about reducing fuel burn next.

i set off tomorrow (monday 11th) for my phase 2 on the Tuesday. I think its fair to say i feel hugely under prepared (although im not really). Cant help thinking i'll get there and be way out of my depth.

SO much to do tomorrow. Hair cut, go accross town to my work to pick up my passport, get maps printed for the drive from LHR to Christchurch, and be at the airport for 10am.

Above all though... IM SO UP FOR THIS!!!!!

good luck to everyone for Tuesday (And everyone else who still has to go to Bournemouth) Who else is going on the 12th at 1pm. Remind me? I dont htink i have your real names. WOuld be nice to semi-know somebody..

The test is really nothing to worry about. Brush up on your maths and you will be fine.

It was an enjoyable day overall. Nice to meet everyone and it was good to meet some of the people who are almost at the end of Wings.

Im not sure if im confident or not. I got a crap score for the final test (hand eye math calculation coordination) compared to almost everyone else i spoke to.

Only time will tell!!!!!!!!!!

Yeh, Lynda pretty much sorts everything out for you. Just give her a call and she'll tell you all details and terms of the loan, and arrange a time/day to travel down to sign the paperwork. All pretty straight forward really!

Stage 2

Hi all,

I'm going to Stage 2 on the 18th March, anybody else attending on the same day?

Also, to anybody who is going or who has already been to CTC in Bournemouth, where is the best place to stay if I go down the night before? Are there many hotels nearby? I don't really want to stay 10 miles away and struggle through the early morning traffic!

Cheers

i stayed at the queens hotel. Bit of a dive but decent enough for 35 (when booked through www.superbreak.com) plus you get a full cooked breakfast.

Someone on here mentioned their granny had stayed in a b&b/pub with rooms near CTC. I looked it up and it is literally 3/4 minutes away. Single room is 55 per night.

Hopefully whoever it was who posted that originally will come along and remind us.
