    LEN’S VISIT TO THE THREE VALLEYS:

    Went on a flying visit to Meribel and Courchevel yesterday morning to get a look at our super new chalets there…Highly impressed with Chalet Du Praz (just a few steps

    from the bubble car station in Le Praz  Courchevel). Looks nothing on the outside,

    but astonishingly large inside and wonderfully appointed. Guests are going to love it.

    On the trip I was able to observe that the ski-able snow is down to about 1100 metres.  Had a short ski on partially pisted slopes, but the walk uphill made me pant a bit.! Can’t wait for the lifts to open.

    Worth noting that Chalet Du Praz is available at a special offer price of £479pp

    for the weeks of 5th and 12th January 2014 – with the wonderful early snow

    and great location this one has got to be worth a look.

    Lens Ski Tip…

    No need to spend £50 for a pair of decent gloves. I use thinsulate cloth

    gloves on sale in England in Garages for £2 a pair, astonishingly warm and on

    those bitter days I wear some silk inner gloves…toasty fingers all day.

    LEN IN LA PLAGNE TODAY:

    “Spent Monday morning helping to clear snow from the new metal steps to
    Chalet Bouton D’Or and admiring the new kitchen in there. Got confirmation
    today that World Speedway Champion, Tai Woffinden, who took the title for Great Britain in September will be out to ski with us in Chalet Bon Coin the first week
    of the season, December 15th. He is a super skier and great fun to ski with. Can’t wait to get out on the slopes with him.”

    “Len’s Ski Tip”…

    Good preparation and good equipment make for a good holiday.
    So…do not buy cheap goggles,,always have the double skin type and never put your bare fingers on the lens.  Best to put them over your eyes as you leave the chalet and do not touch them until you stop for lunch.”

  • Len Silver in La Plagne…and the first of Len’s Ski Tips…

    LEN SILVER IN LA PLAGNE:

    Saturday’s planned trip to Tignes was cancelled in favour of ski-ing from the Bon Coin down to Plagne 1800 and come back up in the mini-bus. Someone had seen a piste machine out doing it’s work so it seemed like a good idea…Oh no it was not! Sure, the piste machine had been out  BUT it had only tracked the snow, not smoothed it, so the route was lumpy and rough…plenty of snow but quite heavy and hard to ski in it’s broken state. But we all got to the bottom in one piece and I realised that I needed to lose some weight and get fit…so what’s new ?
    Fresh Tracks 24.11.13
    It brings me to the first of my daily

    “Len’s ski tips”…Get fit for your holiday:

    Two ideal excercises…some hard brisk walking, at least 2 miles a day (get up early to make time!) and knee bends holding the back of a chair. This strengthens the muscles around the knee and could help avoid ligament damage. Happy ski-ing

    Len Silver in La Plagne…22 November 2013…
    Woke this morning to find brilliant sunshine and  clear blue skies. The snow is
    just like a Christmas Carol…deep and crisp and even…looks perfect to ski on, but
    no lifts open yet.  Just as well because I would have been tempted and at 81 it
    now takes me a bit longer to get acclimatised to the altitude. Some of the staff are having a day off on Saturday and visiting Tignes for day’s ski-ing on the glacier and down to Val Claret…..Shall I go ????  Len
