The official Portes du Soleil iPhone application makes you the master of our French-Swiss ski area. This new application contains everything you could possibly need to know about our cross-border ski network: an interactive piste map detailing slopes that are open, skiers’ GPS location on the slopes in real time, the weather forecast and snow conditions, restaurants on the slopes, webcams, emergency numbers and other useful information. You can also watch the best film clips about the ski area, browse the events diary, make full use of the augmented reality software to explore the Portes du Soleil mountains, and make use of the bespoke route planner for an ideal ski back to the Hotel Christiania.Screen viewWeather forecasts and piste/ski lift opening and closing times are provided by the ski resorts within the Portes du Soleil. GPS positioning is indicative only. Charges may vary depending on your mobile phone operator and location within the French-Swiss ski area. The application was developed by Skiplan, the specialists in providing mobile phone information for skiers.Screen viewWe will get a link to this app on our facebook page in the next few weeks
As many of you turn your calender to September this morning you will also be counting down the days until the start of the European ski season.With 3 months to go if your planning a group trip please call our office NOW. Yesterday one day at the end of January had over 60 people looking to stay in the Christiania at the same time, over 3 potential bookings.Hopefully the video below from Morzine/Avoriaz will inspire you to get your group together this weekend and place the deposit to secure your booking.
We had hoped to update the blog on Monday but our office in Scotland has been off line for a couple of days due to our telephone and internet lines going down. It appears that the council cut through the line while cutting the grass about a mile from the office. Bookings are coming in at a fast rate just now so its worth having a look at our price grid for season 2011-12 and seeing what dates suit your skiing needs.Hotel Christiania Rates 2011- 2012High Season7 nights5 nights3-4 nights16th Dec – 27th Dec125 €125 €140 €27th Dec – 3rd Jan150 €170 €n/a11th Feb – 18th Feb140 €n/an/a18th Feb – 25th Feb125 €n/an/aMid Season7 nights5 nights3-4 nights3rd Jan – 8th Jan115 €135 €150 €4th Feb – 11th Feb105 €125 €140 €25th Feb – 10th Mar115 €135 €150 €24th Mar– 31st Mar95 € 115 € 135 €31st Mar – 7th Apr125€140 € n/a Low Season7 nights5 nights3-4 nights10th Dec – 16th Dec60 €85€95 €8th Jan – 21st Jan85 €95 €115 €21st Jan – 4th Feb95 €105 €125 €10th Mar – 24th Mar95 € 105 € 125 € 7th Apr – 14th Apr85 € 95 € 105 €
