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!
