- Len Silver – 15 January 2016
Friday 4.30pm… Just arrived back in the chalet after the longest day’s ski-ing for me this Winter. Unexpected sunshine from 10am coupled with pistes (and some off piste) in perfect conditions gave me the opportunity to make the most of it ski-ing with some friends and covered a lot of miles including a fast run down to La Roche on the steep red that starts at the bottom of the Golf run at Aime 2000. Amazing ski until the last 100 yards when I was surprised to discover a little ice and I subsequently learned that it had rained at that level the day before and with temperatures down to -10C, then ice was bound to be there. Champagny in the sun a little later and we had earned our lunch by the time 1 o’clock came round!
Len’s Ski Tips…Always clean your goggles with soft paper tissues and never touch the lens with your fingers…that tiny amount of grease will make your goggles fog up when you least want them to….happy vision!Continue reading →

- Len Silver – 14 January 2016
Had a fantastic day yesterday ski-ing with Jess (who runs Topaz) and her parents who have been Silver Ski regulars for 15 years. Into the trees of Montchavin all morning as it snowed quite heavily. Ran to the very bottom and covered almost all the runs of the area finishing up at the Plein Soleil Restaurant at Plan Bois for spaghetti and a vin chaud for lunch. Then out came the sun from behind the clouds so we made our way quickly to Bellecote and the Blanchet chair to get into Champagny on the Levasset fast run to Borselier. Noticed then the very cold air on our faces (-10c), but the snow was perfect and the better vision made the afternoon one to remember.
Len’s Ski Tips…If you are venturing into off piste deep snow it will help you to turn more easily if you reach a long way down with your pole before making the turn.Continue reading →
- Len in La Plagne – 7 January 2016
With very big snowfalls over the last week, the resort is now almost fully open and the pistes are getting better on a daily basis and with the safer off piste areas now beginning to be used. Had two super days in perfect conditions on Tuesday and Wednesday when we actually had some sunshine to go with the snow! Today (Thursday) we are having a huge dump of snow with “white-out” conditions, so I think it will be a short ski to Monica’s for lunch….
Len’s Ski Tips…If you drop a ski in deep powder, it will either be underneath you, or in your own ski tracks just above you…it will not shoot off to the side. Find it by using your other ski as a scythe, but swing it deeply as the lost ski could be well below the surface…it will make a “click” noise when you find it…enjoy!Continue reading →
