Here at Ice and Fire we’re counting down the days until the start of the winter season and we can’t wait! The cold weather is coming, there is frost on the ground in the mornings and the first snowfalls have arrived in the resorts.
The first heavy snowfalls of the season fell on the 22nd October with initial coverage down to around 900m although the lowest snowfalls initially melted relatively quickly. Coverage on the glaciers is good and a base is beginning to build ready for the winter season.
Locals are beginning to prepare for the snowfalls too and all across the region farmers are bringing their animals down from the mountains in preperation for the arrival of winter.
In La Plagne the lift pass company is hard at work as well making sure that the finishing touches to the new chairlift from Bellecote are completed, as well as testing the other lifts and trying to get as much routine maintinance as possible done before the snow arrives.
At Ice and Fire we’re beginning preparing for the season too – and we can’t wait! During this pre-season time we keep ourselves busy ordering everything we will need for the winter, preparing the chalets, planning the chalet team training and generally getting excited. Not long to go now!
Want to be first on the slopes this winter? We’ve still got a few spaces left for 13th – 20th December in Chalet Genepi – get in touch to find out more.
