News from the snow !  The Resort Report
SNOW IS ON THE WAY
After a brilliant start to the season, there's more snow forecast this week, with 20cm expected in the next few days across most resorts.  It is forecast all the way down to 900M so there should be lovely snow on a great base all over the mountains.

THE RESORT REPORT
Michelle from our sales team has just returned from her first coach weekend and this is her report....

I was feeling a little anxious awaiting the coach for Brides Les Bains. I soon relaxed after a few plastic cups of wine watching the movie. The coach ride was really comfortable and  it didn't seem as long as I expected. Paul our driver kept us all entertained with his refreshments and a raffle draw!

We arrived at the hotel greeted by our rep Tiffany, we skipped the full English and had the continental breakfast, then followed by a quick change and straight up the mountain in a bubble. We had amazing snow conditions I couldn't have asked for more. Fresh snow, blue skies and empty runs. My boyfriend Andy was a beginner snowboarder. As I've worked four ski seasons I thought I'd take it upon myself to give him some lessons, not a good idea, I was in hysterics the whole time watching him roll down the mountain. None the less Meribel is the perfect resort for beginners. The Altiport area is full of lovely green runs, where as blue runs are endless throughout the valley. You can also avoid those dreaded drag lifts and horrid descent from chair lifts as there are loads of gondolas which makes the learning to snowboard experience even more enjoyable.

After a hard day on the mountain we enjoyed a few jugs of beer in the famous Rond Point followed by a slightly wobbly run back into Meribel . The hotel had organised a later shuttle bus from Meribel to Brides Les Bains so we could all sample some Apes ski. Our day was rounded off with a very tasty three course meal, some Vin Chaud and an early...ish night.

I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of skiing you get during a weekend break, it really is go hard then go home....
Want to know more just give me a call....

We have had to put our passes up to reflect the exchange rate :-(  But you will still save up to 10% if you book with us before you go.

So compared to buying them in resort you will save £10-20 on your stay, plus more on our ski hire prices which we have frozen in Brides.

However we cannot guarantee to hold these prices for the season if the exchange rate does not improve.
