Here is the final update and news for your ski lessons next week. The Morzine - Pleney resort has worked incredibly hard to get some runs open and will be offering limited skiing which is suitable for beginners and novices.
However, for those that need more than nursery slopes, the range of pistes is just not available so we have made the decision to move the complete ski school programme to Ardent - Avoriaz. This way, we are sure that we will be able to provide the exciting and enjoyable learning experience that you expect from BASS.
This is for lessons from Sunday 20th December to Thursday 24th December only.
SKI PASSES 1. The standard Morzine & Les Gets ski pass is not available as none of the links between Les Gets, Morzine and Nyon are open and the ski pass office have said that they will refund pre-paid ski passes. A lower price, Pleney only pass will be available to those wishing to ski on the Pleney area only.
2. For BASS lessons, the best option will be to purchase the Portes du Soleil ski pass which gives you access to all the slopes throughout the Portes du Soleil.
The Avoriaz area only ski pass is a more economical option for beginner skiers and those who prefer to stick to nursery and gentle blue runs only. Please contact your ski pass vendor to action any refunds or purchases.
LOGISTICS First step is to ask your chalet operator whether they can help organise shuttle runs from your accommodation to Ardent. Ardent is also accessible using the free bus service in Morzine and timetables are available from the Tourist Office.
There is also a service called Ride Around Town who offer a 'taxi' type service and you can call them direct on: +33951157107 or +3362 847 1089 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org Super Morzine will be open from the weekend but return to the top of the bubble will be by downloading on the Zore chairlift as the run is not open. This access will not get you to Ardent lessons in time for a 9.30 start.
LESSON TIMES All the lessons times have been pushed back by 15 minutes to give you a little more travel time to get to the slopes. All lessons will start and finish at the top of the Ardent gondola (unless specifically arranged) and meeting information will be emailed to you later today.
We hope that this arms you with all the information you need to get your holiday off to a great start. Don't hesitate to drop us a line or give us a call if you have any questions.
We are looking forward to skiing with you very soon.
All the team at BASS Morzine!
George was patient, great at simplifying the technical aspects and, best of all, massively positive. Great feedback after each run and really helpful intros and instructions for the next. Confidence levels improved hugely... Can't rate highly enough...thanks George!
