My biggest regret is stopping boarding. My stuff got knicked and when the travel insurance settled it was June, not the best time to get some new kit
Also scuppered my annual trip with the boys as it didn't make it over to married life
Anyhoo, I'm going to go against the grain and poo poo Scotland. Most days* boarding I've had here have been miserable, freezing, white out, gales, and on ice. The continent is where its at, the infrastructure beats anything Scotland has to offer and the guaranteed snow and sun etc and will probably be cheaper to boot. Even better is a fortnight in North America, I went to Mammoth in the mid nineties and it was ace, best thing I did to bring on my skills.
* not all but most.
