Preparing the Piste and the Lifts Thursday, 14 August 2014
This is a new video showing the work that goes into preparation and management of the pistes, and the ski lifts in the Les Gets area. The video is fascinating.
Clearly, all the people who manage the pistes are highly skilled – and they do an excellent job. The end result is that the quality of the piste is very good in Les Gets, the queues at the lifts are relatively short and the area is relatively safe.
Of interest - I have sat on the 'red eye' plane a few times, on an early Monday morning going from Geneva to London - chatting to people who have been to the high resorts, only for them to tell me that the snow is 'blown off', that the conditions are so bad it is hard to ski or that they spent ages queuing – whereas Les Gets is generally good.
My view is that the guys in Les Gets do an outstanding job.
The video is in French, but is fascinating.
