Did you know Chamonix’s ski season goes into May?

Fancy some Spring Skiing? Blue skies, warmer temperatures in the valley but snow on the pistes? Chamonix’s ski season goes into May & from 12 April the prices for ski passes drop! Les Houches should be open until the end of April & high altitude skiing at Grands Montets should go through until 11 May.

We’ve just launched a special offer for the week of 19 – 26 April 2014, which we’ve reduced from €2700 to €1800 euros so it’s an ideal time to celebrate Easter in the French Alps

See  the Chamonix website for details on Chamonix Le Pass & Mont Blanc Unlimited prices & the Les Houches website for details on the Les Houches prices

Jenny Jones Wins First Snow Medal for Slopestyle

Jenny Jones from Bristol has just claimed the UK’s first Olympic snow medal in Slopestyle at Sochi!! It was real nail biting stuff.  Jenny went 2nd on the 2nd run & after what seemed like an age whilst the judges deliberating over the score, went into the lead. She then had a nerve racking wait whilst the rest of the field did their runs. Girls from Finland & America pipped her to 1st & 2nd but when the last girl sat down on her run, the medal was secured!

It was a fantastic spectacle & great for snowboarding, but we just hope the girl that fell & cracked her helmet in two (!!) is ok
