“The Grands Montets ski area will be open continuously from December 5th, 2015. Timetable: From December 5th, until December 18th 2015 included. First departure from Lognan at 9am, last round trip at 3:45pm, last one-way mountaineers 4:15pm and last descent from Lognan at 4:45pm. Have nice day !”
This is great news and means the conditions up on the mountain are better at this time of year than they have been for a number of years.
The latest snow forecast for the Alps is looking very good!
If you have not already booked your airport transfer now might be a good time. Â An early dump of snow followed by cold weather is the perfect start to the season and means that Xmas and New Year is more likely to be “Snow Sure”.
We will of course be following this and reporting as soon as we see the white stuff falling out of the sky.

A mountaineer recently discovered a box of hidden treasure on the Glacier des Bossons, He stumbled across the box which contained rubies, emerlands and sapphires while crossing over the Glacier.
The climber decided to hand the jewels over to local authorities after he noticed the jewels were contained in bags with ‘Made in India’ printed on them.
Its not the first time pieces of aircraft have been found on the Glacier des Bossons, in-fact, some local residents frequently find pieces of the stricken Air India plans that crashed on Mont-BlancÂ in 1950 and 1966.
If no-one claims the jewels they could become the property of the lucky mountaineer, who would then become around â‚¬250,000 richer!
If your 2013/14 winter holiday is already booked why not get you airport transfer booked too. All too often we receive last minute requests from people who “forgot” to book this vital part of their holiday.
We understand it’s not as much fun as choosing your luxury chalet or buying your new skis online, but without the airport transfer your chalet could be difficult to get too.
AtÂ this time of year many of the airport transfer companies are getting ready for the coming winter and have lots of availability, booking now will almost certainly guarantee you availability even over the busy Xmas / New year period.
