28 Sep Here comes the winter!
Winter is fast approaching.
At time of writing this the lifts open in St Anton in 62 days and in Courchevel in 70 days time.
These two websites also give some great resort information for anyone who has never been to the resort before or insider info for those that are regulars.
In the Kaluma office we have been busy recruiting for the coming season and we are almost there. Very happy to have two, hopefully three returning staff to Courchevel 1850, in the forms of chefs Dan and Rich and our head host Julia. In St Anton we have a whole new and exciting team, two who are already very experienced in St Anton, Chef Spike and Rep Adam. As soon as everyone is confirmed we will spread the good word and introduce the whole team.
As time presses on we are getting all the orders and stocks ready for the winter. Delighted to have Tea Pigs Tea in the chalet again www.teapigs.co.uk . In our opinion the best tea bags out there and they went down a treat last season. Also our favourite cereals in Rude Health Cereal www.rudehealth.com which were a winner to start the day last season.
Also came across a new website and company, where you can have beanies, bobble hats and scarves or gloves handmade and knitted by some Grannies. Have a look and give them a go, a great cause and a great idea. We are trialling their hats at the moment. www.granniesinc.co.uk You can design your own pattern, colours and style.
With more and more journalists now writing about the winter and whats on offer, whats available and where to go we have been lucky enough to already be featured in several publications, including the Sunday Telegraph, The Evening Standard, Canary Wharf and City Magazines, Square Meal Magazine and hoping to be in the Financial Times, Conde Naste and Harpers Bizarre in the coming weeks.
So keep an eye out for our mentions and check out all our new offerings on www.kalumatravel.co.uk
We have winter experiences in Norway, both exciting ski tours as well as arctic husky dog sledding, snowmobile safaris and stays in some unique hotels.
We also have new, exciting Heli-Ski Experiences in Russia and Georgia as well as our favourite ones in the Arlberg and Verbier and Courchevel.
So the season is shaping up nicely, we’re very much looking forward to it. We hope you are too.
