Santa Moving With The Times!

High Speed Santa!

Father Christmas will leave his reindeers in Lapland and take to a Segway to pay a call on Sherwood Pines Forest Park!

Roving Santa will rev-up on his dream machine to help deliver more fresh Christmas trees to the beauty spot’s popular Forestry Commission sales point, near Clipstone, Notts.

Segways – invented in the USA and described as self-balancing two wheeled electric transportation machines – have been touted as the future of green commuting.

In spring they will make their debut in the 1,200 hectare (3,000 acre) forest park when Go-Ape offers them for hire to visitors for woodland safaris. Chris Bray, Forestry Commission Recreation Manager, said:

“The Go-Ape guys wanted to get in a bit of practice so kindly offered to help us move Christmas trees around the sales area, getting into the mood by dressing as Santa. Segways are a brilliant way of exploring the forest and this will be a terrific new attraction next year.”

Christmas tree sales run daily in Sherwood Pines until 23 December from 9am to 3.30pm.

Thousands of pines, fir and spruce are up for grabs, but an on-going national shortage of Christmas trees means revellers are being urged to buy early to get the best of the crop.

Paradiski – Christmas in the French Alps

A great time was had by all over Christmas and New Year during our stay in Vallandry in the French Alps.

As usual we stayed with our friends at the Doncaster based operator Ski Olympic @skiolympic in their chalet hotel La Foret.

The village forms part of the Paradiski area in the Tarentaise Valley and offers uninterrupted skiing in the areas of Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne, accessed by the spectacular Vanoise Express.

I’ve started to ‘trawl’ my way through the 60gb of high def video shot on my GoPro Hero camera and hope the trailer above gives you a ‘taster’ for the film to come?

Back to the Alps!

View from La Rosiere towards Arc 1950 and 2000

As the weather turns colder in the UK and the central heating is turned on we look forward to the winter ski season in Europe.

As an avid ‘web cam watcher’ I note that snow has already fallen in some areas overnight and the ‘glacier’ resorts of Tignes in France, Saas Fee and Zermatt in Switzerland are already open for winter sports.

This year we visited a freezing (-16)  Peisey-Vallandry , part of the Paradiski area, which link’s the Arc villages, 1600, 1950, 2000 with La Plagne via the spectacular Vanoise Express, the area offers 425km of ski slopes!

We also enjoyed a ‘sun drenched’ week in La Rosiere at Easter.

As we plan our 2011 trips we will be turning again to our good friends at Ski Olympic, an award-winning, Doncaster based, independent tour operator offering catered chalets in the French Alps, take a look at their website, I cannot recommend them highly enough for service and attention to detail.

Enjoy the movie trailer for this season’s adventure along with a selection of still images of some stunning landscapes!
