AVALANCHE!!!

No doubt many of you will have heard that the Avalanche risk in much of the Alps has been increased over the past few weeks and that made have created some cause for concern. But not to worry.

For those of you fearful that you might not get in to your resort for your weeks skiing, let alone the unfortunate British skiers stuck in Zermatt (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/snowandski/8996826/British-skiers-stranded-in-Zermatt.html), with a dual-carriageway to the front door and a multitude of transfer companies operating between Chamonix and Geneva Airport (Just 60mins drive), you’ll neither miss your holiday, nor your flight home. Worth considering when choosing a location for a Alpine Home….

But if you are not too keen on the more extreme end of skiing, it is also worth baring in mind that some of the ski resorts we in Leggett Ski cover, are great family resorts and suffer less from the effects of Avalanche disruption, as long as you don’t stray too far from the beaten path. Just as an example, the Trois Vallées currently have 216 lifts open, Grand Bornand has 35 of 42 pistes open, and the Portes du Soleil have 34 of 38 main cable cars running. An excellent turn-out, I think you’d agree, meaning you and your family can get the very best of the metres of snow that have fallen over the past two weeks.

Do get in touch and we will be happy to advise you as to which resort would best suit you and your needs. It maybe one you have never even skied before!!

Happy Skiing!!
