- LEN – GETTING READY FOR WINTER…
October arrives and I start to think about getting fit for the Winter’s ski-ing… a bit of weight to get rid of first! I have visited the Snow Centre at Hemel Hempstead 4 or 5 times recently, an excellent indoor snow slope facility to get the ski legs going… if you live in the vicinity, well worth a visit before your holiday. During the Summer I became an agent for Dynastar Skis, my personal favourites having used the “legend” model for several years and last Winter the “Chams”. Now I have the newest model, the Powertrack 84 and for my daughter the Glory 84 both all terrain and suitable for every type of skier who appreciates quality. If any of you are interested in these models, we can supply with a 25% discount delivered complete with bindings to your home address…. email to us for more details…can’t wait to get on the mountain!

- LEN SILVER – FINAL BLOG OF 2016
The Final Finale Blog of the 2016 Winter season with early morning bright sunshine, little wind and cold air temperatures…in other words “Perfect Ski-ing Conditions”. Covered countless acres of snow with the highlight of the day being the afternoon run down to “La Bois” piste to Champany Village at 1200m… I was astonished as the snow depth right to the bottom. Soft in the sunshine and a delight to ski. I would not be surprised to see the run open all the way down until the resort shuts at the end of April… a real delight and a bonus at this time of year.
Len’s Ski Tips… When the snow is so perfect, it is easy to ski too fast. Remember to fully complete each turn to control your speed so that you really DO enjoy your whole holiday…Continue reading →
- LEN SILVER – WEDNESDAY 16 MARCH 2016
Wednesday morning and woke to discover a fresh inch of snow which fell overnight… enabled me to make some nice “S”s on the run behind the chalet! If I thought the piste conditions had been perfect the day before… think again… this was even better! Ski’d with my daughter Jackie all the way down to Montchavin, suffering some blustery winds over the top of Arpette, but really incredible March snow right into the village. Snow pack is really deep there for the time of year and ensures that the next few weeks will be great to ski all the way down. Glacier was closed today with high winds at that level, but the forecast for the rest of the week is clear and sunny…just as we all like it!
Len’s Ski Tips…Final tip of the season… remember my 3 Golden Rules 1. Ski on the balls of your feet… 2. Ski on one ski at a time… 3. Keep your hands where you can see them… Have a great ski!Continue reading →
- LEN SILVER – BACK IN LA PLAGNE 14.3.16
Arrived on Sunday for a week’s ski-ing before I have to get back to my normal life. Got onto the slopes at 2 O’Clock and was truly astonished at the quality of the pistes, hard packed down yet able to take an edge perfectly… and not many skiers around to take the joy from it! Inversens off the Roch de Mio, bathed in sunshine, was so easy on the legs which was very helpful on my first day on ski’s for over 3 weeks… the long day’s travel made me drop off for a very short nap on the long chair back up to the top! Back down to Bellecote via La Source gave me more of the same ski-wise, but I was ready for bed as soon as dinner was over!
Len’s Ski Tips… When the snow is in such perfect condition you can try weighting down both ski’s together using the “Big Toe – Little Toe” technique… gives you a great, but different feel of smooth carving.Continue reading →
