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 :-)

foxtrotzulu, a good idea would be to book them in private lessons in La plagne center with either Oxygene or ESF, the other advantage of this is that you dont have to return back to Montalbert. wink

cockofthenorth, redrunmarcus, Many thanks for the advice. Lessons now booked with Oxygene as suggested. They sounded very freindly and helpful. I can quite see a rebellion coming on Tuesday a.m. when I pack them back off for their usual group lessons with the ESF!

foxtrotzulu, I think you might be right ....they will enjoy Oxygene ...which instructor have they got ?

redrunmarcus, I asked for someone who speak English and is good with children. They said Cathy was their most popular instructor with children, so that's who they've got. I suppose the question I should have asked is which female instructor is most popular with forty eight year old men!

I was very tempted to go with Oxygene for all the tuirion, but the friends we are going with are using ESF, as they did last year, and it just seemed too complex to muck about and to persuade them that a 30 minute trip to ski school was a good way to start the day. However, I suspect that is the better solution in all sorts of ways.

Just returned from a fabulous week in Montalbert. Masses of sun and the pistes holding up remarkably well. Snow cover away from the pistes has suffered pretty badly over the last few days but the pists still in very good conditioning considering.

Marcus - Sorry I never got to buy you a beer. I did stick my head into L'Abrevoir one evening, but for once you weren't in at the time! Thanks again for all your help. James

Mid morning, and the snow was fantastic, must of seen no more than 10 people in La ros, we where planning on doing the back of the fort a route which we've done many times, Set off and within first two turns it started to slide, tryed to pull left but a few big rock that side so the avalanche pulled me in to the middle and took me 2 to 300 meters down the face - deployed the ABS once I knew the thing was going to cover me. thank god for ABS

An off piste trip to Montalbert!!! Twisted Evil

What a day!! After the hassle of getting over to the Arc 2000 bowl yesterday we went to the La Plagne ski area today. What a great move!! Arrived at Les Coches after only a 20min drive and we were up and skiing within 30 min.

After getting to the top of the Les Coches side of La Plagne, due to the weather and poor vis we decided to head off piste into the forest areas. Starting from high on the ridge we carefully made our way through the meadow and down the steeper face into the forest areas in very deep snow. Due to the higher avalanche risk with so much fresh snow about we went very carefully down the steeper slopes taking a very conservative line.

After nearly an hour of untracked deep powder we arrived at La Roche and then had a run down through the forest on that side in more fresh snow finally reaching the Omelette Restaurant almost exclusively off piste from leaving Les Coches to arriving in Montalbert. This is a route I have tried a number of times, but today was the first time I have managed to do all sections off piste almost the whole way.

After a good lunch we headed back to Les Coches by mostly off piste routes again with snow falling around us, the wind blowing quite strongly at times and great powder well up to our knees.

By the time we reached the car it was 5pm and we had only stopped once for a short lunch. Quite a day and although the vis was bad at times, the snow conditions made up for it.

Tomorrow promises to be more of the same as it is snowing higher up again tonight. If you are interested in seeing what it looked like today, check out the latest photos in the April 2012 Album Two of my Les Arcs Winter facebook page. Enjoy! Toofy Grin
