Chamonix Snowboard Season 2010/11 Special offers for MSW!

Postby bighill » Mon Sep 20, 2010 6:29 pm

For some of us as the winter edges closer and and the conditions start to get harder (in the U.K at least) some of our focus starts to change from heading down the beach to making our way to the mountains to get our boardriding fix.

We've set up in the Chamonix Valley in an awesome luxury chalet minutes from the lifts and aim to make our guests feel completely at home and relaxed from the minute they arrive until they leave.

We'll be posting special offers here before anywhere else and keep the boardriding community up-to-date with what's going on in the valley from parties and events to the latest weather conditions throughout the winter season... Get in touch with us if you need any more info...

Karl and Chrissy

Thanks J... For those who want to go beyond the pistes and see some serious backcountry. In partnership with mountainguide.nl were offering a special-technique and freeride training course from the 13th-17th of December with expert mountainguide Michiel Engelsman...

Hey Chris, found this thought you might find it interesting...

Gilbert White (18 July 1720 – 26 June 1793) recorded the effects on world climate after the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Laki in 1783. Laki is just next door to Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano which has caused airlines trouble this year in Europe.

In the years after Laki erupted the climate chilled in Europe and thousands died from famine caused by crop failure due to the cooler weather, I am not sure the size of the current Icelandic eruptions will cause a famine in these modern times, however it might cause cooler average temperatures which could result in fantastic snow conditions next winter season.

Not too sure what I think to going hungry this winter but for good snow conditions I suppose it might just be worth it?? :lol:

weve just had the first proper snowfall in the Valley and put the webcams up on our site for peeps to check conditions... http://www.bighilladventures.com/webcams.html

Man am I looking forward to some serious shredding this season!!! :twisted: 8) :lol:

V Interesting. Had first snows in Scotland, but just had a warmer spell, so it's fading again. First winter climbs of the seanon have been done in the 'gorms though. oping to make a trip to Europe this year, won't be Cham again though.

Hi its been a while since I posted and to say lots has happened at Big Hill would be an understatement... We're now running an amazing chalet in central Cham and we're also a LibTech test centre with around twenty Lib Tech for our guests to test and play with... - you can find us at Both http://www.bighilladventures.com and http://www.bighillboardandski.com I might sling up a new thread because we can once again offer 10% off for all MSW members/forum users if thats cool with the mods?

thanks,

Karl

Glad it's going well! Either start a new thread or change the date of the thread title?

Looks like Alps have got first snows, as have Cairngorms.

I too have some 'things' going on in Chamonix. As well as offering private transfers from Geneva airport I will be doing a daily eyeball weather report (much like my eyeball surf report in Biarritz). Anyone interested can see it here: http://www.biarritzairporttransfers.com ... monix.html
