Meribel snow report

Morzine

Well the temperature has dropped here in Morzine and it has been SNOWING!!  We have had some epic powder runs, and with more snow forecast, we can’t wait for some more! The best conditions can be found on the upper slopes in Morzine and Les Gets, so we would recommend checking out the Chamossiere Express (2002m) or the Ranfoilly Express (1826m). The slopes are can get pretty busy at times, so if you are looking to avoid the crowds, head over to Mont Chery or Nyon.  You’ll find much shorter queue times and some great skiing also!  You are bound to find some beautiful untouched reds over in Mont Chery!

Half term activities include laser games, human curling, music, a carnival party on ice, torchlit decent and fireworks and much much more!  Please see the following links for details of everything coming up for children and families. http://en.morzine-avoriaz.com/coming-up.html

Fresh Tracks in Serre Chevalier

Val d’Isere

The snow is back and coming down hard. There is a fresh canvas most mornings to decorate with your fresh lines; La Face is exceptional first thing if you don’t mind the early morning queues. There have been a couple of high wind days, which make it rather chilly at the top and off piste rather dangerous, so make sure you go properly equipped and best with a New Gen guide.

Half Term – What’s On?

The major event that occurs in Val during the busy half term period is the FrostGun Invitational Freestyle Competition.  Some of the worlds best and most legendary freestylers hit up the massive kicker at the bottom of La Face de Bellevarde to showcase their talents and compete for the title. It is an event that draws massive crowds and is guaranteed to leave you in wonder.

Other events during the week include the Airstar Night Light evening on the 15th on the main street. This colourful night includes street performers, DJs and a percussion concert. On the 17th at 17:45 there is the Bollé air-board contest. These inflatable sledges apparently give the sensation of flying and after a couple of practise runs you can enter the free race to win a couple of Bollé prizes. Who doesn’t love a bit of healthy competition? If bombing down the slopes isn’t for you then at 18:00 there is Le Marionettik Circus. A delightful circus show that ignites the imagination for children and adult alike. Finally on the 19th more racing as there is the Dynastar Night Slalom competition. Make sure you sign up early to this knockout competition as there are limited places, possibly due to the fact that a pair of Dynastar skis to be won in each category. But a good way to try your hand at some competitive slalom and have some fun whilst doing it.
