As we do each year, we try and find a way to push through the winter months when it becomes too unpleasant to get out on the water so what better way than to hit the slopes with our great Datchet Ski Trip!
This year, instead of taking a chalet for three/four weeks we only managed to get one week out on the slopes – but what a week it was! Changing from our usual location of Tignes in the Espace Killy ski area a great mix of 10 skiers and snowboarders of all levels headed out to some excellent ski conditions in Courchevel in the expansive Three Valleys ski area. With one of the best seasons for snow condition in the Alps for a couple of years there was a great mixture of skiing, snowboarding, great meals, a few drinks and great company.
With the luxury of having everything in the chalet done for us by our fantastic hosts, we must have seen more of the resort staff over the course of the week than any other chalet – it might have been something to do with the pre-dinner drinks we had organised each evening! Overall, everyone was raving about what a great time they had and people are already asking about our plans for next year’s trip so if you are keen and would like some information, whether you are a couple, a group or a solo skier do get in touch and we can fill you in on what our plans for the January 2014 trip are!
