Telegraph World Snow Awards

We were delighted to find out that we have got through the first round of the Telegraph World Snow Awards 2017.

Entrants are judged on their activity over the last 12 months relating to developing and improving the ski school experience and a small group are nominated to a shortlist for the finals.

If you like what we do, you could really help us out by voting for BASS. It only takes a few minutes and we’d really appreciate your support.

 Even Ferraris need an MOT so tune in for a tune-up?

Personal Development Camp Morzine & Les Gets

 

Jan said it best when she told us: ‘The clue to the course was in the title – Personal Development. You listened to us and tailored the content to our individual needs.’

 

Even Ferraris need an MOT so why not tune in for a tune up this winter?

 

The PDC is exactly that, with no predetermined fixed script, our coaches listen to you and use their experience and expertise to bring out the best in your skiing.

Les Gets Ski Lift Development

Preparation for the new Ranfolly Lift

The Ranfolly chairlift is being upgraded which completes high-speed uplift on this whole side of the Les Gets area. As reported by lesgetsinfo.com, the new lift will be a 6 person detachable with moving carpet to ease loading. No more bashing the backs of your legs!

Originally installed in 1986, the current chairlift has a capacity to move 2,400 people per hour but the new lift will take 3,300.

Fitness training for advanced skiers – avoid over training

Advanced and expert skiers are enthusiasts. They tend to be self-motivated and have the ability to commit to an action plan over an extended period.

 

These abilities can produce fantastic results in all aspects of life.

Sometimes, though, these same abilities can lead to a tendency to overdo things.

 

This article discusses the importance of balance in our fitness programs so that we can avoid the problems caused by over training.

NEW Chairlift for St. Gervais ski area

Construction of new Epaule Chairlift

Construction is well underway in Domain Saint Gervais for the new Epaule chairlift. The old two person chair that goes up to the shoulder of Mont Joly will be replaced with a 6 person high speed detachable chair. This will be a welcome upgrade especially as it is on the higher altitude part of the domain. The skiing from this point is excellent with good off piste options and access to Saint Nicolas De Veroce.

What ski level am I?

  

How do I know what level I am?  This a question we get asked by many clients wishing to book ski lessons.

 

It is probably one of the most important questions to know the answer to as it helps you book into the correct Group Class or gives your Private Lesson instructor the knowledge to help plan and structure your lesson and choose the most suitable terrain for you so that you can achieve your goals safely and successfully.
