With the sunny weather we've had for the last ten days or so many people have been taking advantage of the excellent Snowpark in Les Arcs. There is something for all levels and a T-bar drag lift that brings you efficiently back to the top.

Well, it's been a crazy few days in Les Arcs! The end of last week saw a snowstorm which has deposited more white stuff in a few days than we had all of last season. This is a great start but has brought with it a fair amount of chaos as well. The roads up to the higher resorts have been closed at times for avalanche blasting and high winds and there have been a few accidents too.

The snow is finally here - it took a while to arrive, a fair amount of snow dancing - and most probably some serious re-arranging of the jet stream some five miles above our heads. After 6-7 weeks of scraping around on ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon, everyone has been out playing in the 30-40cm of powder on offer and off of a sudden, areas that were previously inaccessible have become open game, so my friend, Filip & I decided to do some exploring.

Skiing Whistler BC, Canada at least once in your life is a must. Come to think of it, with over 1190 acres of skiing across the two mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb, you’ll probably need to go more than once. The Peak to Peak Gondola, that spans the 4.4km’s between Whistler and Blackcomb, is the longest and highest lift in the world giving guests 365 degree views of the mountains and the valley, there is even one lift with a glass floor!
