20 May MAY – THE SNOW KEEPS ON COMING
The 2018/2019 season has come to an end here in Villaroger.
It’s been a great snow year here in Paradiski with snow falling often, topping up the slopes regularly. We have had plenty of Powder days here in Villaroger, Les Arcs and Sainte Foy Tarentaise. The sun has shone much more this season which has kept the guests happy.
Our Off Piste weeks have been a success and we have seen some new faces. Everybody has been challenged and taken out of their comfort zone but loved every minute. Our Instructor is fantastic and makes sure it’s a fun week and pushes people to exceed their normal level. Bookings are coming in already for next seasons courses so please book early if you would like to join one.
Whether you are a beginner Off Piste skier or an experienced one, we have something for everybody including back country ski touring weeks.
La Rosiere opened up its new lift in the Montvalezan area which created a fabulous new Off Piste Area and some of our guests were taken over the back from the top of the lift and skied all the way down into Italy Off Piste.
We were still skiing down to the village in Villaroger on the 15th April. Snow coverage has been amazing with all the snow cannons. The new Comborciere lift out of Les Arcs 1950 has made access to Les Arcs 1600 so much quicker.
We continue to ski up to 7 Resorts including Tignes and Val D’Isere which means we can open from the beginning of Dec until the end of April.
Easter skiing was quiet this year due to Brexit date of 31st March. Our bookings suffered and the pistes were very quiet. Great for us locals.
Anneha has passed her French Baccalaureat and is now looking for work. Ffi is still in school in Bourg Saint Maurice.
Summer is not far away and we once again have the Tour De France passing through. It will finish in Tignes on one stage and then pass through Bourg Saint Maurice finishing in Val Thorens the next day. We are lucky to have it come so close again.
The Giro cycle race is passing through La Thuile in Italy next weekend and we are going to try and head over to see it as the Col de Petit St Bernard is due to open on the 23rd May. Looking forward to an april spritz and a pizza.
The glacier in Tignes and Val will open again this summer for Summer skiing. We have lots of availability and the whole chalet , 4 bedrooms fully ensuite sleeping up to 12 people is available for only £1150 for the week. We have an outdoor hot tub and terrace with furniture and BBQ.
Lots of local fetes and activities to keep you occupied on your Summer activities holiday.
All prices for next winter are held as of this years prices for an early booking. Please get in touch soon to book the dates you want.
Hope to see you all soon.
