Weather Systems Back Up
Bit of a repeat of last year with the storms!
Have now set the new PTZ WebCam up in our garden so indeed you can now monitor the snow conditions if you're that way inclined or merely see where we live!
Been more like late March / April than Jan, with rain in the valley 1400m. I went up the hill in diablical viz and really strong winds and snow level was at 1900 and was down to 1750 by the time I came down.
As I type this 21:00 rain turning to snow and temps dropping so hopefully will wake up to a subtsantial snow fall, and then first lifts, but I suspect it will be the trees as up top will be shut due to strong winds.
It's that time of the year again, and we're out in Serre Chevalier for the season again. And it's from there that my wife and I run Style Altitude which is now into its second season and gaining momentum.
Serre Chevalier is a great location, in fact that's the main reason we have a place there!
From nice easy family pistes through to the extreme skiing that La Grave offers, we pretty much have it all. Plus we're as about as close as you can get to the snow kiting area of Col du Lautaret. Aside from lift serviced skiing we're blessed with some superb ski touring terrain.
You can read what we get up to out there in our blog, this is last year's and by the middle of next week hopefully I'll have the new Serre Chevalier WebCam up and running and will be providing daily reports on the conditions.
So if anyone is interested in the possibility of coming out to Serre and the surrounding area and have any questions then get in contact and I'll do my best to answer!
Love this classic moody shot from Eunice
Last week we met the backcountry Snowboarding / Mountaineering Legend that is Jeremy Jones, seriously hard core dude, and got a great interview out of it with a slightly different spin to all the other stuff you might read, click here to read it.
Have set up a new Pan Tilt Cam which I'll be taking to France, not ideal for here as you can't really see the horizon though sure if I positioned it higher would be ok - click here to have a play
Sunday 2nd Nov great session with some fun conditions. And Eunice on hand to capture the action. If you don't have FaceBook have put a few others in the gallery below.
More pics from Eunice
And do check out Gary's photos from Lancing on Sunday some great shots too and not just kites!
