Half-term skiing!

Half-term is finally here.
The first half of the season has flown by...we can't believe it's half-term already!
And still fantastic conditions on the mountain!
Anyone looking for a last minute few days, we still have a few cheap beds left in Lavachet Lodge at £30 per night B&B. If so, let us know!

Freezing but fantastic conditions!!!

Very cold conditions this weekend in Tignes.

Minus 25 degrees, at that is just a resort level.

Has made for some pretty skiing.

Check out the diamond dust in the pictures!

"Diamond dust forms under clear skies; referred to as clear-sky precipitation. It's common in Antarctica and Arctic, but can occur anywhere with a temperature well below freezing."

Fantastic February ski conditions

Absolutely fantastic conditions out here in the Alps.

Yet more snow, and more sun!

Ultimate Snowsports have been running a few off-piste courses this week, and have taken full advantage of the great snow conditions.
