Samoëns Weather Update – And the snow keeps on falling…

Truly Amazing Conditions for the Formal Opening of Samoëns Skiing

After the treat of the early weekend opening in Samoëns, everybody in the valley (and I do mean everybody!) is excited about the formal opening of the lifts this Saturday.  Admittedly, the weather in the village has been pretty variable with snow, rain and everything in between, but whenever there’s a break in the precipitation, the clear skies reveal the snow line well below 1600m (it’s been down to about 900m today!).

It doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of changing with continuous snowfall anticipated for the foreseeable forecast horizon – check out our Samoens snow forecast page for more info.  Both of the major forecast websites predict more than 30cm of additional snowfall on Friday alone!

No Better Time for a Bargain Ski Adventure

With snow conditions as good as this, why not snap up a last minute ski trip. There are bargains to be found!

We are almost entirely sold out for Xmas week and only have availability in a stunning, newly renovated chalet, La Roche (take a look at the chalet photo gallery here).  There are still plenty of cheap flights with Easyjet on Monday (only £110 return from Luton to Geneva!) and a self-catered week in Chalet La Roche is only £2,400 (saving nearly £1,000).

Why not enjoy a family Christmas in the snow?

Our Chef Hits the Slopes

You may recall from an earlier post (Samoens skiing starts early) that this Saturday (even before another 3 days of snow…), our team hit the slopes for a well deserved rest day.  

The blog post included a picture of Kate on the slopes looking nothing short of sophisticated and elegant – I thought it only fair that we post up a similar picture of Glenn.

Unfortunately, elegance isn’t something associated with first time snow boarders (no fault of Glenn) and sophistication was somewhat hindered by his bobble hat (entirely his fault!) – seriously though, after just 45 minutes Glenn was linking turns and showing impressive skills on the quiet and snowy slopes!

Snowboarding in Samoens

Since Adrien, his Zig Zag instructor, described him as the best beginner that he’s ever taught, Glenn’s been struggling somewhat with the door frames at the chalet claiming they’re a little tight around his head! Perhaps removing that hat will help…

We can’t wait to get him back on the slopes once the season starts properly!

Until next time…
