    LEN SILVER IN LA PLAGNE
    Yet another great day for ski-ing and once again I was pushed to my limits by
    my Speedway friends who all think that anything under 50mph is for wimps. None
    the less we all enjoyed the South facing slopes of the Champagny area, fully
    appreciating the good vision in the sun. My shattered nerves from all the speed
    ski-ing were helped by an extra vin chaud with lunch!
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    When ski-ing into a slope that has more than an average number
    of skiers ahead of you, many of whom may not be too competent, slow your
    own speed to match the other skiers so that you do not need to make too many
    passing movements. The risk of collision and injury is then greatly reduced.

    A surprisingly good sunny day on Monday following a good snowfall on
    Sunday, so once again we found perfect conditions on and off piste.  Met
    with some of my friends from the world of Speedway at lunchtime and raced
    round with them afterwards to finish up in the Crozats off piste area and on
    down the Malatray black with them pushing me to my limit…lost a few
    pounds in weight though!
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    Ski-ing through broken snow should be done at a reasonable speed so
    that your skis carve through the roughness with ease. If you go
    too slow, you will feel every bunch of snow trying to stop you turning so the
    effort is much greater…and don’t forget to keep your weight over the front of
    your skis all the time with positive pole planting (to the side).

    LEN IN LA PLAGNE

    Saturday was a quiet day on the slopes as most companies have their
    change over.  Hazy sunshine and our group took the tough red Les Bois run
    down to Champagny. A real test of character with crunchy conditions vibrating
    us to the limit on the bottom half. But we all got down in one piece and were
    glad we’d faced the challenge.  Heavy cloud in the afternoon so some of
    us called it a day.
    Len’s Ski Tips: 
    Relaxing while you ski is a skill to be learned. Try relaxing the
    leg with no weight on as you turn. You have to think about it all the time,
    but if you master it, you can ski much much further without stopping.

    LEN IN LA PLAGNE
    Friday was a magic day with sunny weather and perfectly prepared pistes.
    I ski’d again with some guests and among many other areas, persuaded them
    to do the “Black” Malatray down to Les Bauches where, to my amazement I
    found a brand new 4 man chair which has replaced the old and uncomfortable
    2 man which has been there since the 60s…made my day! The “black”
    was OK too….
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    Never ski off-piste on your own and if you explore an area which
    is unfamiliar, do not follow somebody else’s tracks…they may not
    know where they are going either! Sensible thing is only to ski an area
    which you know is safe and not take the big risk of unknown territory.
    Mountains can hurt you..respect them.

    LEN SILVER IN LA PLAGNE

    Surprised to find some sunshine this morning, having expected snow!
    Took advantage and ski’d with half a dozen regular guests, decent skiers all
    of them so we enjoyed some steeper reds down to La Roche among other
    places. Clouded in after lunch and I expect some snow later.
    Len’s Ski Tips: 
    Ski-ing some steep slopes? If you want to get down quickly
    and with as little effort as possible, as you traverse between turns, let the
    skis slide downwards, sideslipping both forward and sideways. It gets rid of
    height really quickly and requires little skill or effort. Note…it doesnt work if
    there are moguls.
