The Cool Bus Onboard Magazine 2014

Once again for this coming Winter we will offer our customers an onboard magazine to enjoy at their leisure whilst travelling onboard the coolest buses in town. Last year’s mag was a popular read for many of our customers who travelled with us to and from the airport and the ski resorts of the Tarentaise.

One of our customers was so riveted, he couldn’t put it down even when we stopped at the bakery!

For Winter 2014 we are offering the same format of interesting and informative editorial content including loads of local area information, hints and tips for the incoming holidaymaker. Check out last year’s mag here if you haven’t read it already.

If you have a business in the area and wish to promote it to 16,000+ potential customers then please contact amie@origami-media.com or call +33 (0) 6 43 80 65 82.

 

Snow Still Lingering in The Alps!

Those of you who holidayed in the Tarentaise this winter will surely agree that the snow conditions were generally awesome. In fact the total cumulative amount of snow was said to have been seven and a half metres! Col roads in the valley took longer than usual to open after the season finished as snow was being cut through and snow walls were so high they were super unstable and the risk of avalanche was still high well into June!

The cols are now open after an initial delay. It’s as beautiful as ever up over the Cormet de Roselend.

Since the winter season finished at the end of April though, we have had some fine weather, much like the heat wave in the UK recently! So you’d expect the snow to be gone by now right? Wrong! Many mountain bike and walking trails in Les Arcs up above 1800m are just becoming fully rideable and it’s mid July! There is still a lot of snow up there and ‘fresh tracks’ can be seen in the Grand Col area where a super keen skier has refused to let go of winter.

Still loads of snow up near the top of the Transarc lift in Les Arcs!

The Summer season is now definitely in full swing however, and Bourg-Saint-Maurice is bustling with visitors. The Paradiski area seems to be busier with mountain bikers and we are certainly busy with airport transfers and uplifts. The Tour de France heads along parts of our airport routes tomorrow, Friday and Saturday so it would be rude not to go and show our support. Look out for a Cool Bus on the TV coverage if you’re a fan!

We have been over to Alpes d’Huez a few times already this Summer and Le Tour will be going up here twice tomorrow!
