And @kboy - thanks for the expert input!
Have booked some lessons at the slope up in Manchester, and picked up some salopettes and a couple of jackets from eBay (one a particular obnoxious 90s job). I’ll see how bad of a learner I am before getting another day of lessons whilst I’m out there.
We’ve booked into Tignes in March, I understand it can get pretty cold up/down there so will layer up.
I guess leave the boots and rent when I’m out there?
