Are you already missing the snow in the Netherlands? Don’t worry, Winter(mate) is coming. Another year of delicious beers, snowhugging/ brutal falls or spectacular stunts and wonderful memories is waiting for you.
This year Wintermate will take place from the 19th till 28th of February 2016 in St Francois Longchamp, in the area of La Grand Domaine. With slopes spanning over more than 150 kms it offers enough challenges to have a wonderful week! The trip will cost 475,- euros, including accommodation, bus trip, 7 day skipass, a discount on beer and an awesome Wintermate vest. An 8 day skipass (so you can go riding those slopes soon after arrival), lessons from a qualified instructor and the rental of material is optional for extra costs.
Subscribing externals is allowed, however in the case of a raffle, Intermate members will get priority. When we have reached 18 subscriptions, the Wintermate journey will be official. Hereafter, every extra 6 subscriptions means a guaranteed trip for everyone, due to the accommodations. However, if we reach a number in between 1-6, a raffle according to standard Intermate rules will be held to determine who can join us during this trip.
Subscriptions will close Sunday the 6th of December at 23:59:59. People who subscribe before November 12th will receive a reward at the Wintermate drink on Thursday November 12th, so make sure to subscribe in time!

For people wondering about the higher level of the price this year: unfortunately, the trip takes place during the most busy holiday weeks of this year, making it more expensive than other years. An earlier trip or lower prices were not possible, to our disappointment.
