The alps do get a lot colder than the UK hence the great snow and long season. This has an impact on your vehicle so here are some recommendations:Diesel - can freeze particularly overnight when temperatures drop regularly to below – 15 degrees centigrade. Therefore when you get to the alps make sure that you put some winter diesel in your fuel tank. Note supermarket diesel whilst cheaper is not winter diesel and will freeze. The local service staions will sell winter diesel (Gazole Hiver)Screenwash – again most screen wash in the UK is good down to -10 degrees centigrade be prepared for –20 degrees. Top up with some stronger stuff on the way across France.
Just wanted to pass on our huge thanks to Julia, who had our children, Sally and Leo, this afternoon for a two hour lesson. Our kids were incredibly reluctant to have a lesson, having had a bad experience in Austria, but Giulia was perfect from the off, patient, enthusiastic and so encouraging. They both came back saying how lovely she was and that they want to be ski instructors now! For two very shy and nervous kids, this is a brilliant result. We will certainly be booking again with you in the future and will have no hesitation to recommend. Every instructor we have come across on the mountain has been superb with their group - a great advertisment for the company!
