Hands Up For Those Thinking About Skiing

Now the clocks have changed, the days are getting shorter, and you occasionally get a glimpse on social media that snow is falling across the Alps, I bet that more than a few of us are thinking about skiing again. Although it might feel that cranking on the ski boots, and clipping into your skis, seems like a lifetime away - don't despair, it's sooner than you realise.

Skiing Time Flies

'Time Flies' is a common phrase that's thrown around a lot, and rightly so. It's just like a weeks ski holiday, it goes way too fast. All of the pistes you wanted to ski, the hot chocolate stops, apres ski parties, shopping for the ultimate ski equipment in resort, and catching up with other friends in another valley - all have to somehow be squeezed into a week.

Following on from last month's blog post about the new huge water reservoir in Méribel, this time I'm reporting about a chairlift that I saw being installed during my summer holiday - the new Roc de Tougne chairlift.

Last month I was lucky enough to have a fab holiday back in Méribel, my winter office, see previous blog post. Amongst many things, I always try and keep an eye out for developments on the mountain and see what new things will be in store.

Wildlife in the Vanoise National ParK

Last week Harriet and I took a last minute weekend away to London, where we had a short list of things we wanted to do including visiting the Natural History Musuem. Every year, the fantastic 'Wildlife Photographer of the Year' exhibition is hosted at the museum, and is a 'must visit' for us.

Springtime In The Alps

It happens every year, and it certainly happened again this year. The end of the winter just whizzed by at a frantic pace, and I failed to post a blog since the middle of March. Plenty of excuses to be honest, so just I'll just put my hand up and apologise. Having said that let's head straight into the latest.......

March Snow Conditions In Meribel

One of the many advantages of being a Ski Instructor based in Meribel, is being up the mountain pretty much every day. This means accurate first hand knowledge of snow conditions. Granted, webcams provide reliable images, and of course there other sources of information. However I thought I'd share with you my thoughts on the current snow conditions.

February Celebrations in Meribel

It isn't unusual to be asked to take part in a torchlight descent during the February holiday period, in fact working for the Meribel ESF there is an expectation of this. This winter was no different, but with a couple of twists. Firstly, it is the 70th anniversary of the ski school this winter, well worth shouting about. And secondly, the 'International Space Station' was making an appearance above Meribel. How does this all fit together........

The Time Has Come

The time has come Ladies and Gentlemen, time to head back to the French Alps for the winter. Yippee, high fives all round, performing back flips, and other childish silliness. Actually, I can't help myself, I'm going to run round all day skipping gaily, smiling at strangers, topping up the caffeine levels and generally acting like a right wally. Because this coming winter in Meribel is going to be brilliant.
