- Len – Hot News
Got really excited this morning… had a look at the live webcam in La Plagne which sits at the top of the Bergerie Chairlift (just above Bon Coin Chalet) and saw the first snows of the winter with quite good cover that looked as if it went down at least to Plagne Centre… So, when I arrive with Hazal and Alan in a couple of week’s time, instead of going for mountain walks, I may well be doing some “Ski Du Fond” as the cross country tracks seem to have good snow cover!! Wow!!Continue reading →
- LEN – WINTER PREPARATIONS
Thinking about snow and looking at the long range forecast for La Plagne, it looks like plenty of wet weather for the last half of October and all of November which should produce snow at the ski-ing levels.

- 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 →
