clock 2nd February 2015 | comment1 Comments

Over 1 metre of snow has fallen in many resorts over the past week, transforming conditions across the Alps. Resorts reporting the best of the new snow are Chamonix, Flaine, Alpe d'Huez Avoriaz, Les Arcs, Soldeu and Crans Montana. Here is a selection of our favourite snowy photos from the web over the past few days..

Which skier are you?

clock 27th January 2015 | comment0 Comments
Thousands of Brits head to the slopes each winter for their one week a year on the slopes. As the mountain lifestyle is so different to our normal 9-5 lifestyle we all have strange traits and habits on a ski holiday – where else can you get away with a Glühwein stop at midmorning or where melted cheese becomes part of your daily diet? We’ve put together some of our favourite humorous ski characters you’ll find in a ski resort – which one are you and your friends most like? Powder hound You don’t bother getting out of bed if there isn’t any fresh snow. If there has been snow forecast, you will be up before sunrise to hike up your favourite mountain for fresh tracks before most people are even eating breakfast. You are an expert in all things backcountry, avalanche safety and snow prediction and often found preaching to people on a chairlift. Ski Chic Even though you have been skiing since a young age, you now only get out on the slopes if it is a perfect blue bird day. You are most likely found occupying sun loungers and bar stools in Zermatt, Courchevel or Davos in late season. Your skis have seen more action in the ski racks of an après bar than on snow. The Ski Family Are you a super mum that is always fully prepared for any weather or situation? Are you a dad that tries to fit in with the chalet staff at après and is the first one to get the jagerbombs in? Do your children either head straight to the snow park or fly down red runs when there are meant to be sticking to blue pistes?

James Bond returns to the slopes in SPECTRE

clock 13th January 2015 | comment1 Comments
Last month the eagerly awaited announcement of the title and cast for the 24th James Bond film was unveiled to a rousing applause at London’s Pinewood Studios. SPECTRE will see the return of actor Daniel Craig for his fourth 007 mission, as well as bond returning to the sacred ski slopes. Renowned for filming in the most spectacular locations in the world, director Sam Mendes was eager to announce that shooting will be taking place in Sölden, Obertilliach and Lake Altaussee, Austria.     In the movie, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to the Alps in Austria among many glamorous destinations to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. Skiing, the high-octane preserve of the lone wolf perfectly captures the sophisticated and adrenaline fueled persona of James Bond. Author Ian Fleming, of the original James Bond novels, has certainly passed his love for skiing on to his star subject. Bond has made regular appearances on the slopes; he has never performed any other sport more. With the love for skiing brimming strong in his blood from his Swiss mother, it’s no surprise he’s a natural on the hallowed slopes.   Daniel Craig in Austria for the filmimg of Spectre Daniel Craig with co-stars Lea Seydoux and Dave Bautista "If you are going to live the high life you've got to ski. Its action packed, it's classy, it's quintessential Bond." said comedian and Bond enthusiast Rob Deering It’s now 15 years since the snow-loving spy was last seen on skis, when Pierce Brosnan survived a dramatic off-piste chase scene in The World Is Not Enough. It's about time he’s back on the slopes, dodging bullets, causing an avalanche and taking down henchmen, all while demonstrating the most sublime downhill technique. As the first day of production got underway in Lake Altausse, Austria on Monday 5th January, here at Iglu Ski we decided to take you on a journey back in time to revisit some of Bonds most hair-raising and explosive adventures on the sacred slopes. Top 5 James Bond Ski Scenes After much deliberating, we've whittled down the list of great Bond ski scenes to present you our top 5 favorites (expect some outrageous ski attire, gadgets, stunts and even flying ski-mobiles!) 5. The World is not Enough (1999) Pierce Brosnan & Elktra King expertly navigate their way down the slopes with the breath-taking mountains of Chamonix in the background, before battling villains in the sky on flying snowmobiles.   4. Living Daylights (1987) Timothy Dalton's Bond in "Living Daylights" swept down a mountain slope on a ski equipped car, and then on a cello case to escape danger and gun fire to cross the border into Osterreich, Austria.     3. A View to Kill (1985) If snowboarding down a mountain in Switzerland on a blade from a destroyed ski-mobile, while evading henchmen with California Girls by the Beach Boys playing is not quintessential Bond then nothing is.     2. For Your Eyes Only (1981) Roger Moore As Bond produces one of the best chase sequences in the Italian Alps of Cortina D'Ampezzo, performing outrageous jumps while being chased by armed villains on motorbikes, before hurtling down a bobsleigh run while escaping the pursuit.     1. The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) The most iconic sequence in the James Bond franchise is undoubtedly 'The Spy Who Loved Me', when Bond shot straight off the edge of a cliff at Baffin Island in Canada, we saw him fall and fall, and when the Union Jack parachute opened up and the theme tune kicked in, the world cheered.   Channel you’re inner Bond and take to the slopes with our fantastic ski deals.  By Myles
