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.
Another great week of instruction from Matt & Janet with the penguin group! Isla has progressed beyond my expectations and appears to have talked everyone's ears off in the process. 3yrs old and loving skiing - thank you so much!
Thanks Peter for my lesson and putting up with me insisting I can't do it. Anyone looking for lessons in Chatel, you really can't go wrong with these guys.
