What a difference a month can make! The team at Ski Bespoke were fortunate enough to head out the Alps a few weeks ago, searching for new resorts and hotels that might fit the criteria we look for… As a regular summer snow seeker myself, I packed sensibly enough, with ski jacket and enough beanies for 2 changes a day – but my internal barometer must have been slightly off, as we were instead hit with blue skies and sunshine all week. (Hardly a bad thing) and were fortunate enough to meet some locals.


Saas Fee is a year-round resort. A lot of people are surprised when I tell them about how you can still ski in August, albeit on a smaller scale, and you can usually expect the warm weather to help work on ones goggle-tan. Needless to say, it’s rare to have a big dump of fresh snow to help top-up the glacier.

Sure enough, the world works in mysterious ways. Saas Fee is reporting powder conditions since last week! Enough to disrupt the Saas-Fee RIDE freestyle competition and its riders = although I cant see too many people complaining…Surely a sign that the 2011/12 season will be one to savour?!
