Camelback Snow Patrol team in Alpe d’Huez

Family skiing in Alpe d’Huez – 12/2019

11 Jan

To Khalid and is dear family with whom I shared a great skiing and teaching experience during last christmas holidays.

From green groomers to the longest european black slope in about two weeks. Great times and improvements. It’s all about fun, hot chocolates (without foam), double espresso’s, mars/kitkat/snickers/orwhatevertheyvegot. All it takes are small tiny mountains and a little snow ! 😉

Thank you for your trust

Cara, Ella, Hanna and the boyz, Jack and Tristan. Those are the names of these amazing little skiers. From snowplow turns to perfect parallel slides and turns, not to mention the fancy stops. Improvements were numerous and fun was always our motto.

As promised, Tristan is flying high in l’Alpe d’Huez sky while our feats of strength are displayed in this short video.

Last week Kew Green Prep school was staying in Beau Soleil hotel here in l’Alpe d’Huez. I taught intermediate group 1 and had a lot of fun doing so.
Nice and kind kids, good skiers becoming better every day. Off-piste, jumps, powder, crashed and big smiles !

Northfield was here !

Amazing week with Northfield School & Sport College kids this week. I was the lucky one who got assigned to group number one; a bunch of great kids who had already skied a little bit before.

Even though we started on nursery slopes and greens early in the week, improvements came very quickly and we ended up riding the best reds of the ski area at a crazy pace !

We finished the week on a good session at the airbag, here’s a glance at the crew :

Last Day

More powder to conclude with another brilliant session. Thank you boys for this week; it was good riding with you. Here’s the last episode of our adventures :

Day 3

Another part of “L’Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine” got shredded today. I took the boys around Villard Reculas, all the way down to the elevator through a dream made of trees and powder. Danmark youth sure loves jumping all over the place :

Day 2

Another good morning with the boys, this time we’ve left our tracks on Monfrais-Vaujany area. Here’s a glance at the team in action :

Day 1

This week “Ours” Danish organisation provided me an excellent bunch of snowboarders. We had a great morning today enjoying 30cm of fresh powder on Signal de l’Homme.

This video does NOT reflect how good those guys are 😉
