The Espace Killy is open!
The resort of Val dâ€™Isere opened today on the 28 November and put on a great show. The snow is not massively deep but the runs above the mid stations of Solaise and the Bellevarde are open offering a large area to explore in beautiful sunshine. It is possible to ski down to La Daille and the link to Tignes is open which means that the excellent snow of the Grande Motte is available.
There is a party atmosphere at the bottom of the ski lifts with everyone amazed at the quality of the snow. The artificial snow making facilities are on whenever possible and with the snow forecast for the end of the weekend it should not be long before even more of the area opens up ready to welcome the World Cup. The development centre started our season with a special lesson for my boy Oscar who loved having skis on for the first ever time. I think we are going back tomorrow.
