Season Opener, Meribel Dec 2014 So it turned out pretty good after all...

The beginning of the 2014-15 season will go down as one of the worst for a number of years. Despite good early snowfall in October and early November, temperatures across the Alps said stubbornly high in the six weeks leading up to the official opening dates of ski resorts across the major Alpine countries. This was a big concern for Inside Out Skiing as we got closer to our traditional Season Opener coaching holiday. Based in Meribel, this trip has been a great success over the last five years and we watched anxiously as the weather forecasts slowly turned to disappointment until a few days before the trip when the Meribel lift company confirmed that they were delaying the opening of the resort by one week. However, all was not lost as one of the great features of skiing in the Trois Vallees is the high altitude skiing above Val Thorens. The downside was the inevitability of the drive around the valley from Meribel to Val Thorens, but the upside was that at least we would have some skiing available. Little did we know when we confirmed our contingency plans just how well everything would turn out! Read More...
