Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Many thanks for all the details and photos. Fingers crossed construction gets finished before the snow.

That ship has sailed - 8cm of snow overnight Smile

That being said, one of the cannons is done & the lake is finished.
The other 2 cannons need installing ( pipe work done), the conveyor needs the power unit being coupled up, and they either need to move the old liftie hut 30m nearer, or buy another shed from Bricorama.
Then there is the small matter of finding 2 lifties and 2 piste securistes, is order that they can run the lift.

Thanks I saw the Web cam with snow. It takes as long as it takes i guess, worst case next year it will be operational. Waiting for new facilities is better than waiting for news that something maybe happening. I'd you get a chance to drop another update before neol appreciate it.

Is it just the magic carpet now or have the other lifts been refurbished?

One of the other chair lifts has been refurbished - and then re-erected at La Grande Turche.
The only lift at the moment is the magic carpet, but its pretty easy to get up to the top of the old red run, black run or Muret runs, as you can just walk / skin / hike along the road and then lay down as many freshies as you like.

There's an old ESF guy in Les Grand Pres called Roger. He lives in the house opposite the colony.
There's some BASI qualified teachers out here too. Don't know if they have the right ticket for teaching here, but you could ask them.
(Look at the facebook link above, and follow your nose)
ESF in St Jean is probably the best bet though - there is a bus from Drouzin direct to La Gd Turche, runs 4 times a day, I think it costs 1€.
Also Yveline who runs the ski shop and lives in the Gite on the corner, I think she knows plenty of local instructors.
