And so it begins (again!)…
The Powder N Shine Management Team have assembled in a snowy Reberty Village, with Val Thorens open a week ahead of schedule and temperatures consistently sub-zero, hopefully ensuring the best start to a season for 4 years.
The rest of the team arrive next week, and then begins the laborious task of menu planning and extensive sampling, group wine tasting and team building. There is the up-side of cleaning, of course!!
In terms of the snow, the cannons are running almost constantly to top up the healthy snowfall, runs right the way down to St Martin have good coverage and at least 60% of the Val Thorens ski area is already open – a week early, with Folie Douce opening on Saturday!!
As was well-publicised, the last 3 years have suffered from a late first snowfall (last year had a snowy November but followed by a warmer period and drought until after Christmas), so it is fantastic that this year sees a return to the “normal”, reminding people that the season is 5 months from December to April (indeed into may in VT) and that early season skiing can be outstanding in terms of empty pistes and excellent value holidays.
To make the most of this snowy start, Powder N Shine have some tempting offers for pre-Christmas skiing, as outlined below:
December 9th – 16th 2017: 30% off!! Now only £385pp from £550pp
