For the last few years Spiral Cab have been our go-to transfer operator of choice when our current two partners, Ski Resort Transfers and Coolbus, have been fully booked. A well kept secret passed on to a few guests in need; we have never previously partnered with them officially as they didn't have enough vehicles to keep up with our growing demand.

spiral cab transfers franceSmall no longer, Spiral Cab is expanding this year and we are pleased to say they are joining us as an official transfer partner. So if you haven't yet booked travel for your winter ski holiday you can check their prices online here: http://spiralcab.com/

Ice and Fire choose our transfer partners carefully. We look for companies we can form a good professional relationship with; who we can trust to pick up and drop off on time; who recruit and train their teams with safety in mind; who speak English and French; and who we can trust to look out for our guests in a crisis.

"The most important thing when choosing a transfer company is to check that they are fully regulated" says Laurent who runs Spiral Cab. "Most transfer companies, such as Spiral Cab and the other Ice and Fire partners follow the legislation in place to ensure that our guests are safe and happy in our care. However there are some companies who don't so its always worthwhile checking a company out before booking".

At Ice and Fire we love to receive feedback for our partners so please don't forget to let us know all about your Spiral Cab transfer.

 

 

If you've already booked your ski holiday and you're counting down the days until you travel then this blog has some fantastic resources to help you while away the time until you travel.

Webcams are a great way to find out the current snow conditions. Paradiski has an extensive range of cams throughout the area; from the Roche de Mio to Grand Rochette at the top of pointy mountain to the ski school meeting point in Les Coches and Front de Neige in la Plagne. You can check them all out online here.

For the weather and snow forecast snow-forecast.com is where most head to. It has individual reports for Les Coches and La Plagne and these are generally pretty accurate.

If you can’t wait to pick up a free piste map when you are in your chalet they are available online and great to look at prior to departure. You can also download the fantastic La Plagne Yuge ap to stay up to date on everything La Plagne related.

If you are in a chalet in Les Coches then you might need a plan of the village. There is a free shuttle bus in and around Montchavin and Les Coches. The timetable for this winter season has yet to be released but simply take a photo of it when you pass a bus stop!

In La Plagne, too, there is a free in resort shuttle bus and map of the Village and La Plagne 1800.

Both our Ski School partners have excellent websites.  In Les Coches we recommend Evolution 2 and in la Plagne Relex Ski School. On both websites you can explore the range and type of classes which they both offer. Do remember to book early though as both are very popular. If you are looking to book close to your point of departure, you are best to call them directly.

Lift Passes are ready to book for your trip via your MyIceandFire account so that you can hit the slopes running on your first morning.

Finally, as with most activities the web has a vast range of content to let you go full nerd. La Plagne has its own online “virtual museum” that has historic photos and piste maps from back in the day. The Union Pacific website has details of the invention of the chairlift and fabulous archive photos. And if you fancy your own “chairlift chair” then buy one on ebay ‘natch. Or buy one already fully refurbished.

Actually, they look pretty neat!
