Cloudy, light snow high up
Poor vis in places but some cracking piste skiing. Finished with a race down to Meribel Village and all lived to tell the tale…..Happy Birthday T. Wall…..
The boys will be back in March after the madness of half term… (oh and don’t forget LdV, Meribel Village Apres on Thursday) – see you there…
Sun continues – but snow on the way
Sunny weather has led to some pistes becoming hard and worn in their busy traffic areas (especially at the end of the day) but the vast majority of pistes are still in excellent condition. Weather set to change with new snow fall expected by the end of the week.
Congrats to James Shail from La Tania who won Rossignol skis for being the fastest non-instructor in the Natives Meribel Workers Challenge on Wednesday. Truly going hard…
There are not many independents left…
Amer Sports Group own:
Salomon, Atomic, Dynamic, Volant
Dynastar, Rossignol, Lange, Roxy
Tecnica, Blizzard, Nordica
K2, Line, Marker, Volkl, Armada
I reckon that leaves these….
Head, Line, Fischer, Scott, Elan and Kastle (now rescued from Benetton).
Then there are some smaller independent, highly specialist brands such as Liberty, Wagner, Lokomotiv, Goode, 4Frnt and Zai.
Finally there’s the designer labelled ski and boards available in Courchevel 1850 from the likes of Prada, Chanel, Versace and Lacroix (a pair of the latter owned by a certain La Tania entrepreneur – they ski pretty well too!).
Any more to add?
