Home in Les Gets
Well I’ve now been home in Les Gets for a week and after a manic time trying to get everything straight I’ve finally been able to surface for air and we are raring to go for the ski season.
If you need to contact us please take note, the UK mobile has been switched off now until May!
There seems to be some anxiety in the air about the lack of snow (although as I write it is sleeting here in Pont Des Gets and I can see the snow line on the heights gradually creeping down). Of course, our perfect season would begin and end with a couple of weeks free – skiing or snowboarding in Avoriaz before and after looking after our clients but in reality it seldom works that way.
Last season we had an early start but then an unseasonably warm spell brought rain and we were left valiantly limping along with marginal snow from February onward. No offence SAGETS, the work done by the piste bashers and the snow cannons was truly awesome but it will not go down as one of our best ever seasons!
On the other hand if we do not have a decent snow fall until the eleventh hour historically we have had good snow conditions when it really matters (peak season) and even a good snowfall at the end of March to see us through comfortably until Easter. I know which I prefer!
On a completely different subject, it has been business as usual for Joe who has already been working for BASI since October. Today he left to deliver a two day training course to the TUI hosts working in another part of the Alps for the season. Then he will be home here with me waiting for the slopes in Les Gets and Morzine to open – probably mid-December.
