12th - 23rd Dec
We have finally had the very sad confirmation from Haute-Savoie that training in Flaine (and throughout the region) is not currently possible currently for anyone, nor are they sure when this will restart.
With this in mind, CDC have moved the pre-Christmas camp to Les Diablerets.
The hill offers us multiple training options including a quiet glacier (but not overly high so no issue for altitude sickness) hence we will be guaranteed good snow. The snow has been coming recently in abundance in many areas of Switzerland (you may have seen the women's World Cup in St Moritz was cancelled because of 2 metres of new snow!)
The canton of Vaud might have only got 50cm but this is now packed in and has made a great, firm base for training.
The other amazing news is that parents will be allowed to ski.
As with our previous Flaine plans, we will be supporting training on a live out basis only. If you are interested to come but don't have a parent or sibling who can escort you, live with etc then we have had a few offers from parents who would support others. Likewise if you are able and willing to accommodate another child in your family bubble please let us know.
There are multiple options for hotels, and self catering and also apartments on AirBnB in the region.
The town of Aigle is only a 20 minute drive.
Some accommodation options:
The lifts open at 9am (8.40am at the weekend).
Training will be 9.30 - 12.30am and/or 12.30 - 15.30.
It is 20 minute gondola to the top - 2 gondolas which are 10 minutes each (masks compulsory of course!)
I am sure you understand that with us moving from France to Switzerland our costs have increased and the client based decreased so we have increased the cost to £115 per day (only £15 more).
Activation, free skiing, gate training, video and fitness (this will all have to be outdoors in small groups due to COVID)
Accommodation, ski rental, lift passes or food (there is a self service on the hill)
FOOD ON HILL:
There is a restaurant and a self service at the top (see official website at foot of this mail for more detail)
