No self-respecting skier or snowboarder should ever need an excuse for a weekend run down to the snow. But we’re all guilty of living busy lives, and by the time August rolls around, we realise we’re half way through the season and we haven’t even established the faintest of goggle tans. Don’t let your reputation around the water cooler take a hit, it’s time to act, better yet … attack!

Consider Mountainwatch’s August Attack Package your winter ultimatum, and your one chance to score this far into the season. We’re packaging up luxurious, eco-minded and exclusive accommodation with lift passes, and a whole bunch of goodies – just in case the moths ate your gloves and goggles.

Make no mistake, this isn’t a spring fling, we’re running this package for the weekend of the 18th-20th of August, which means conditions are more than likely to be epic, so here’s the skinny …
