January is a quiet part of the winter season. Outside of school holidays, the lift queues are generally fast moving, and cold temperatures mean snow conditions aren’t so much of a gamble. Put simply, we think it’s the best time to ski in Verbier. Plus it’s snowing as we’re writing this.
Even though the resort is quiet, the team at New Generation Verbier have been busy this week.
First up is Josh Maddison. Josh was out ski-touring on Monday. He’s preparing for his European Mountain Safety exam (and having fun making fresh tracks!). We are a tiny bit jealous of him right now… The European Mountain Safety exam tests instructors’ knowledge of avalanche safety, group leadership, rope work and navigation. Josh was ski touring near the Grand Saint Bernhard monastery, where the famous dogs were bred.
To get to the fresh snow, Josh had to climb uphill for a few hours but the views were spectacular.
And here’s the boss, Tom Waddington, having fun. The blue piste to Siviez has had excellent snow. It’s a great place for practising, slower, precise drills at the start of the day. Like skiing on one ski.
And what about the rest of our clients? Well Andy and his clients found some great snow for short turns at the top of the M25. Look at that grin!
So if you fancy empty pistes, lovely fresh snow and the option of one ski-skiing in Verbier, drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to David Roberts for the great photos of the resort this week!
