Season Review 2004/2005
Back in December the Alps were saved by a pre Christmas snowfall but more or less through out the rest of the season the snow came when it was needed.
The majority of the snow came from the North East and hence we had greater depth in Arosa, Davos and St. Peter with Flims/Laax getting enough and sadly the Engadine (St. Moritz and locality) very little until late in the season.
The Snowmotions chalet in Flims, in operation in its first season, proved to be very popular with our clients and as I write this in May, the chalet is already more than half booked for Winter 2005/2006. We were happy to host clients from Australia, New Zealand, The Czech Republic, Mexico, USA, Quebec, South Africa, Great Britain, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore and even the Swiss are now making bookings with the “SwissRaft” crew renting it for the summer.
Reflecting on the season as a whole there are six outstanding days that spring to mind: The first being with friends in early February when it dumped a half metre on consecutive days. With the upper slopes being too dangerous we played amongst the trees and on the gentler slopes of St. Peter. Truly deep powder heaven!
