11th Aug 2013

The Valley is looking amazing at the minute and the closeness of the mountains made more vivid as no haze at the moment. Here are a couple of photos below taken in the last couple of weeks.

We cheered on Froome and Team Sky last month as the Tour passed through Annecy. My mum and GT and the Taylor family came out especially for the event. We saw them 2 days and had great views. The kids colleted lots of goodies from the Caravelle , which was probably more exciting for them than the tour. She got to meet Froome too at the Dauphine, see below.

Anneha is loving cycling and has got the bug. She did Col De Leschaux just before the Tour and got cheered on by the spectators. Just need to get Fifi into it now and then we can head off all together.

We cycled the Tour de Vin , near Albertville and Pierre St Albany. It was a great day out and we finished off with a lovely late lunch.

They are altering the pistes in Villaroger at the moment. At the top of the first lift we will have a little tow lift for beginners and a nursery area to learn how to ski. This will be a great attribute to Villaroger and Skivillaroger for our novice guests.

They are also putting in more snow cannons for the route back down from Les Arcs 2000.

Bookings are starting to come in for next season and we are holding prices as of 2012/13 for another week or so. We start the beginning of Dec to ski Val D’Isere and Tignes, with Les Arcs opening on the 15th and Sainte Foy on the 21st Dec. Millionaires skiing pre xmas with no one on the pistes and well groomed slopes.

Nice view from the Chalet , see below, love sitting on this terrace at the end of the day!

Its the Village fete on the 15th so we are busy getting the float ready and will be making cakes for the cake stand. The girls are on their own stands this yea with friends.

For any walking holidays prior to Dec please click here, short breaks, long weekends or a weeks stay.

We are doing an Off Piste Developement Week in January for those who like to have a go off piste but would like to improve their technique. 5 days fully guided off piste tuition with Pierre Lohen our local ski instructor and enhanced with talks and videos some evenings.

if you are looking for a short ski break dont forget to get booked in to get the dates you want.
