Spring Skiing

It’s ages since I last wrote a blog. Why? Well, it’s been fantastic here over the last month or so, truly fantastic spring skiing. Yes it starts to get sloppy in the afternoons but after so many years in the hills we’ve learned the way forward is to embrace that. So a power ski in Continue reading →

High Season Part 3

Another full on week here in Les Gets & Morzine comes to a close and not even the promise of fresh powder can tempt Joe up for a ski on his day off today! The snow has been fantastic and there’s plenty more where it came from apparently, which must have made the problems with Continue reading →

High Season in the Alps – Part 2

One of the big attractions of Snowsports for many people is the technology it employs. Everything from Kevlar gloves to boot heaters to fat skis, I know guys (& girls) who will happily sit for hours comparing notes on set up, side cut & the merits of wick away underwear.

I’m not trying to scare or deter people from this exciting side of the sport but thinking of the deaths in the Chamonix valley every Continue reading →

Eek! It’s New Year Week!

Yesterday (Saturday): Went early. Went Ski-ing early. Went home early. Awesome! #LesGets. After went to SuperU. Not Awesome!

Les Gets is Open

Les Gets officially opened yesterday but it was limited access, no link to Morzine and only the Chavannes area was operating. Today though we are expecting the links to be open as well as the Ranfolly bowl and Perriers (although there may not be a link between Perriers & Ranfolly unfortunately). Snow reports are predicting a top Continue reading →

Chalet Chef Brad cooked us a delicious meal, served up by the gorgeous Freya whilst we were royally entertained by our hosts, Josh & Jess. Thanks team, that Continue reading →
