The start of the season 2012

Start of the season Welcome

Hello and a very warm welcome from the Discover Morzine team,

My name is George Wood, my partner Rachel and I will be hosting all of the chalet bookings for this coming season in Morzine.  The idea is to use this blog on our new website www.discovermorzine.co.uk to keep everybody up to date with all the exciting things happening in Morzine and to share some of our guest’s experiences.

We thought it would be a great idea to give everyone a rider’s perspective of the local snow conditions and suggest our pick for the best places to ride.

Everyone involved with Discover Morzine is super excited to get started and stoked to get back on the snow for the 2012 season. Here’s a run down on what we’ve been up to Downunder in the lead up to the winter in France:

Rach and I are currently in Australia having just finished working the snow season at Mt Hotham Ski Resort in Australia. We had an incredible start to the season at Hotham with some great powder days, but as the season continued the snow did not. The season ended up closing a week earlier than expected to our disappointment.

Rachel and I both work extremely hard over the Australian season. Rach manages the resort’s primary rental shop and I work as an on-mountain ski bootfitter while supervising a smaller rental shop. But we do get some time to have some fun, Rach competed in a bunch of competitions this season. She took part in Hotham’s “A la Carte in the Park” snowboard series which consists of 10 different events (rail jams, big air, boarder cross and a banked slalom), she ended up placing 2nd overall in the open women’s category.

When the season finished Rach and I travelled to Canberra to attended the SIA (Ski Industry Australia) tradeshow. Rach works for Hotham as a buyer, purchasing new equipment for the next winter season, a little bit of retail therapy. This year I worked for a wholesaler representing Tecnica boots, Blizzard skis and Marker Bindings, this was loads of fun as I got to see all the new equipment and go to some fun events. A highlight of the show this year, especially for Rach, was our invite to the Quiksilver premier screening of Travis Rice’s new snowboard movie ‘The Art of Flight’. We got to have a beer with Travis before the show and got a signed poster. You can check out the movie and many more when you get to the chalet, as it’s the new addition to our DVD library.
