Ski World Record: Day 6 – Rest Day

The Team March 7th, 2014

Update from Jamie

Jamie France

I have had a very useful rest day today (6th March), mainly holed up in the Hotel room in Lucerne, Switzerland. I must admit I might have overstretched myself in terms of daily driving, the first 3 days were each over 8 hours, which is like back to back transatlantic flights – and I’m the pilot.

6 days, 3 resorts and One Very Warm Austrian Welcome

Claire March 28th, 2013

It’s that time of the year where we look towards planning our programme for next season. Austria is a popular choice for many of our clients – and it’s easy to see why; with unrivalled après-ski, a fantastic snow record and excellent Austrian service. So, keen to check out some possible new additions to our programme, I headed to the Tyrol (and managed to squeeze in a couple of days on the slopes too!) Read the rest of this entry »

Fancy a powder day in Squaw Valley?

The Team September 26th, 2012

Squaw Valley, at Lake Tahoe, California, is a great resort for all levels of skier, but it’s also home to plenty of big mountain chargers who like nothing more than to try to outdo each other on a big snow day – often at the same time.

It’s become somewhat of a Squaw Valley tradition to line up early on a powder day at the base of the famous KT22 lift which accesses some of Squaw’s most raucous terrain, including Fingers – a particularly challenging cliff section. The results are often spectacular; the race is quickly on to ski the best/steepest/craziest line before everyone else, and the carnage can be witnessed from the safety of base village, which creates a natural amphitheatre for the action:

We currently have some fantastic early booking offers for trips to Squaw Valley, and also great deals on season passes and lift tickets which cover Squaw Valley, neighbouring Alpine Meadows, and other nearby Lake Tahoe resorts including: Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Diamond Peak, Sugar Bowl, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Mt. Rose.
