Our first Vallée Blanche of the season, December 31, 2018

Bonne Année from Chamonix!

As 2018 draws to a close and 2019 begins, we hope you look back on the past year with satisfaction, and that your projects and plans for the next year excite and motivate you.

We have plenty of our own, and hope to share them with many of you. We wanted to update the status of our schedules and group trips, as we have space on several of them for you and your friends.

Starting with the ski season, we currently have availability for private tours from February 15—22. Or, if you want to join a scheduled group tour, our Silvretta tour runs February 17—22.

Likewise from February 28—March 8, we have a scheduled Albula tour from March 2—8 and/or availability for private tours.

Our Norway trips have space available: 3 spots on the earlier trip running March 12—17, and potentially one spot on the later trip March 19—24.

Our Ortler tour this year has plenty of space available; dates for that are March 29—April 4.

We have a new trip planned, to Livigno, Italy, for 7 days of lift served touring and off piste skiing from April 6—12. This hotel based trip should be a relatively relaxing change from our usual hut-to-hut fare. We'll explore this area, new to us, with a small band of "regulars". However there is still plenty of space for more, so if you would like to meet some new ski buddies and explore a new area with us, do consider joining in. There are three, possibly four spaces available. Please contact us by email if you would like to know more, at kathyandmark@cosleyhouston.com.

We've had a couple of cancellations on our new and challenging Tour du Ciel scheduled for April 22—27, so at this point it looks like we have 2, possibly 3 spots available.
