Thanks to Ski 2 guest, 17 year old Alexander Hyde, for these amazing images taken in Champoluc during his recent stay at L’Aroula on the edge of the Ostafa piste. Alex and his family enjoy some great on and off-piste skiing during the week before Christmas across the Monterosa ski area including an ascent on ski touring skis up the valley above L’Aroula.
Following the success of our Ski 2 Racing classes which we have been running for our younger guests for the last couple of seasons during peak weeks, we are now offering parents the chance to learn to ski like their children. Many of our regular guests have loved the way that we have looked after their youngsters so well in our ski school, but now spend their holiday desperately trying to ski as proficiently as their kids! Now’s the time to prove that mum and dad do still ‘have it in them’ and to master some of the skills of ski racing …
This new course will run from Monday to Friday inclusive from 1100 to 1300 hours each day and will cost £119 per person. Each course will involve a combination of fast free skiing, skills and technique and some race training around poles and is open to those who can ski strong parallel. These courses will be run by local Italian race coaches, all of whom have an excellent command of the English language and have a proven record in training skiers of all ages to international race standard. We will be running these courses on the following dates for this winter: Monday 30th March 2015 and Monday 6th April 2015.
If you have booked a Ski 2 holiday this winter and would like to take part in this coaching, please email email@example.com and we will amend your booking accordingly and email you an updated invoice. (I am afraid that this course is only available to Ski 2 guests)

Despite the adverse effect on the British climate, the Jet Stream has had a positive effect on the skiing conditions in the Monterosa ski area where snow levels are at their highest for many years. The current position of the Jet Stream has given a slightly milder winter with lots of precipitation and weather fronts moving up from the South of Italy – perfect conditions for snowfalls on the Southern side of the Alps.
