Team GB have a great chance of getting some medals from the likes of freeskiers James ‘Woodsy’ Woods and Katie Summerhayes amongst others. This last week we picked up some of theĀ GB Paralympian team and took them up to Tignes and back for some last minute training.

Here’s to 2014!

First of all we’d like to wish all a Happy New Year from the Cool Bus team. Hoping everyone enjoyed the festive period and all the best for 2014!

Well, it’s been our busiest start to a season ever and it all kicked off with the Les Arcs Film Festival. Going from strength to strength each year, the Festival du Cinema European des Arcs attracts the best of film and cinema to our home resort of Les Arcs. Over 70 feature films all originating from European countries were showcased to industry professionals and the public a like in seven cinemas across the resort. It was a great success once again and we look forward to being an official partner again next year.

Obviously, Christmas and New Year are busy times for everyone in the French Alps with most resorts at full capacity and although there’s not been a massive amount of snowfall so far this winter, it seems people are still keen to hit the slopes. As of this weekend, things will start to calm down a little until the Febuary half-term onslaught so it will be time for us to enjoy the fresh snow that is forecast to fall in the next few days! 20cm+ is forecast for Saturday evening so those travelling out this weekend might just have timed things perfectly. Enjoy!
