SSCD Ski Holiday

Holiday Review by Mike Nell

A week in La Plagne

…. the ASD/SSCD holiday in La Plagne was as successful as ever. Organised with the usual aplomb by Sue Morley and Ian Edwards, not even blizzard conditions on the Monday could dampen spirits for long. It was all but impossible to use the slopes during the blizzard as Adrian Carey and Martyn Knott discovered when exploring the slopes beyond La Belle Plagne for suitability as sit-ski locations they found the deteriorating conditions meant the lifts closed behind them and they could scarcely see where they were going. It took an hour to pick their way back to Plagne Centre via the few lifts that were still open. Others enjoyed winters scenes from the bar of the Terra Nova and saved their energy for the glorious sunshine of Tuesday and Wednesday.

As before local company Oxygène exceeded expectations , this time with their skilled snowboard instructor Vittoria a diminutive talented Italian boarder who gave a valuable fresh perspective to Mike Nell’s slow return to the sport and caused more than one or two hearts to flutter(list not available on request)!

La Plagne demonstrated once again what a perfect resort it is for skiers, sit-skiers and boarders of all levels, with an excellent green run right outside our hotel the Terra Nova and more challenging runs further into the mountains.
