I just did a quick google and I've been on that one. I don't mind chairlifts, its when your in basically a crowded bus hanging from a cable and it goes over that pylon and starts to drop that my stomach complainsNot as much as the VDE Leissieres chair over to Le Fornet!
Need to be careful - it may not be punished, but the gendarmerie may well pull you over and refuse to let you carry on if they think there’s a chance of you getting stuck. They run regular roadblocks at the bottom of the hills and will be on the lookout for GB vehicles especiallyI hadn't noticed this line before:
Failure to carry snow chains in your trunk or to install winter tyres in your vehicle in the departments concerned will not be punished this winter.
Thanks, checked as you suggested, and good to goCan I just ask for clarity, sorry my French isn't good.
I think you say above that there are 2 options.
First - Normal(Summer) tires plus min of 2 drive wheel snow chains.
Second - Winter tires on all 4 wheels
As someone with 4 new summer tires(delivered on a new MH) it would be great if the first option is true.
If the first options isn't available, do people hold 2 sets of tires, summer and winter. Or do people fit the 3PMSF for all year use?
I’ve been skiing with a novice skier and stayed with her to get her off the mountain at the end of the day.Not as much as the VDE Leissieres chair over to Le Fornet!
I would say if in doubt use the drain into bucket method. Even with double floored and/or heated tanks, the outlet can freeze, meaning you have to get down with a hair dryer or warm water to defrost it.Morning,
Hopefully we are away to La Plagne over New Year. Reading up on what we need to be prepared for and have come across advice suggesting that the heated grey water tank will not be able to cope with the freezing temperatures and that we should just keep the valve open and a bucket below. Does anyone have any experience to share please?.
We are planning on being here until the end of January, then going to Spain. Thanks for the offer of supplies, I am sure there will be something.See you January, going to Spain for Christmas then back to Montgenevre, skiing stuff on board , can’t wait I will check if you need any supplies bring up the mountain x
The key rules are:“The 250 French ski areas now have a clear roadmap for opening and welcoming ski enthusiasts and holidaymakers who are looking forward to enjoying snow activities,” a statement from trade body The French Ski Areas Association states.
I definitely will, when we have a better picture of the new covid scare. No point coming out if it is all going to shut down.
I don't personally know many ski places that might be better than here. haganap is probably best to advise, he knows more ski resorts than I do.My daughter has just had her trip to Canada cancelled (by the agents) due to covid issues inc the requirement for under 11's to be vaccinated!
i have just shown her the photos of Montgenevre and she has quickly checked the location AND is considering it as an option, but can anyone recommend somewhere a little closer - there will be two families of 3 and 4 persons - ages of children will be 4, 6 and 11 (plus the four adults)
i dont think my daughter would go for the motorhome option just yet (age of children) but their friends are a lot more open to it (plus its their own motorhome !!!)
Thanks in anticipation ..
