Breathalysers in France: as of 1 July 2012 motorists face on the spot fines unless they travel with two single-use breathalyser devices. This is part of a French government drive to reduce the number of drink drive deaths in the country.

The new regulations will be fully enforced from 1 March 2013 (originally 1 November 2012) following a period of grace. Anyone, including foreign drivers failing to produce a breathalyser after that date will receive an €11 fine. French police have warned they will be carry out random checks on drivers using the Channel Tunnel to enforce the new rules.

The French government hopes to save around 500 lives each year with the new law. It is aimed at encouraging drivers who suspect they may be over the limit to test themselves before they set off. The French drink-driving limit is 50 mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood: less than the UK limit of 80 mg.

The French government has now announced that the implementation of the €11 sanction/ fine for not carrying a breathalyser in France has been postponed indefinitely. So theoretically you are still required to carry a self-test breathalyser when driving in France but there is no current legislation demanding a fine for non-compliance.

You can get French government approved breathalysers in Halfords or on Amazon.

Work on the new Traversee chairlift in La Plagne has almost been completed. The chairs just need to be attached to the cables and further tests undertaken on the new 4-seater chair. This replaces the rather cranky 34 year old Traversee chair that took you from the top of the Bellecote-Roche de Mio-Glacier telecabine across to the black slope La Combe (previously red).

Overall the old chair was worth taking to access La Combe: the closer red, La Chiaupe could be a nightmare in the wrong conditions. The main reason to take the Traversee chairlift is for the off-piste on the Face Nord de Bellecote. It also gave access to the old black runs: Rochu and Bellecote – they were always better when closed so now that they are unmarked is no loss!

With the recent snow, it is looking to be another great season in La Plagne.

Oxygène is expanding to Belle Plagne

Posted by Oxygene.

Oxygène Ski & Snowboard School has been going strong for 21 years now and for this coming season 2012-13 you will find Oxygene in Belle Plagne as well as Plagne Centre.

Oxygene in Belle Plagne – Introduction

Thanks to lots of feedback over the years we have seen there is a demand for us to expand, and this season we are doing just that by opening up in Belle Plagne. We will be offering children and adult groups ranging from beginners to intermediates, you can even learn to snowboard by taking our Burton affiliated Learn to Ride group there too. Plus on top of that we will be offering all our private lessons options.

Oxygene in Belle Plagne – Details

What is great is our most popular ski school products will be now starting and finishing in Belle Plagne. The meeting point for Oxygene in Belle Plagne will be in a central position in the village making it as easy as possible for clients to find us.

We will have a team of around 6 instructors permanently based in there. All our instructors, of course speak English, and can teach everything from complete beginners to advance off piste go-getters looking for fresh powder. Our instructors are also trained in adaptive skiing and they have experience in teaching using number of Tessier sitskis both in and out of the seat.

As well as our team of permanently based Belle Plagne instructors, we also have a team of 30 plus based in Plagne Centre. Therefore we have a lot of flexibility and will be able to adapt to the needs of our clients quickly as our as instructors can move easily from Plagne Centre to Belle Plagne. At the end of the day it is realistically only 15 minutes away.

Our standard children’s groups running on a weekly basis from Belle Plagne will be our Premier ski for beginner children from 5 years plus, our Cristal group which is for children with 1-2 weeks experience and our Bronze group which is for children already able to ski on blue runs.

Our standard adult groups running on a weekly basis with Oxygene in Belle Plagne will be our Discovery group for complete beginners, our Level 1 for adults with around 1 weeks experience and our Level 2 which is for adults already able to ski on blue runs.

We will also be offering our Burton affiliated Learn to Ride snowboard group for all beginners.

Plus on top of these group lessons we will offer all our private lesson options from a 1 hour technical touch up to a full day off piste session.

For all those wanting our more advanced groups we can offer them all season starting from our Plagne Centre meeting point. As mentioned before it is not far to ski from Belle Plagne to Plagne Centre, especially if you are at a reasonable standard, and consists only of blue runs. If all else fails we do also offer a free shuttle service to all our customers, and can collect from Belle Plagne as well as take back after the lesson.

Oxygène opened the doors in Plagne Centre in 1992 and what better way could we celebrate our 21st Birthday but by continuing our expertise on the La Plagne resort itself…

Learn to Ride with Oxygène in the Alps!

Posted by Oxygene.

In 2011 Oxygène La Plagne & Val d’Isère became the only Burton affiliated Learn to Ride Snowboard School in France. Now known as The Burton Experience, this is our second year working together with Burton helping those would-be-snowboarders take those important first slides in the right direction.

Introduction

Along with Burton we feel it is important everyone has the best start to snowboarding. Research shows 7 out of 10 people who try snowboarding for the first time, give up after 48 hours and the main reasons for this are incorrect equipment, poor teaching, and unsuitable teaching areas. Therefore we decided we’ll bring a combination of the best equipment from Burton, and the best tuition from ourselves, to make sure everyone can have the best start to snowboarding!

Details

Back in 2011 we became the first ever Burton affiliated schools in France, and one of our most popular course since then has been our ‘Learn to Ride’ snowboard group designed especially for beginners riders. What is great is everyone starts from scratch, and our patient and experienced instructor takes you through the basics, carefully selecting the right slopes and teaching techniques to enable you to gain confidence and master that perfect slide.

Our weekly customer survey has shown snowboarding has become more popular with us since the 2010 winter season with 3% rise during the winter season of 2011.

One thing we find with all snowboarders is that once you have mastered the basic skills you tend to advance pretty quickly, however you should still continue with the coaching from professionals as otherwise you pick up bad habits and mistakes get made. Sometimes friends think they are doing the best by taking you to the top of the mountain and ‘helping’ you down, however this is why so many people decide to stop as they are put in a difficult situation and lose their confidence.

At Oxygène we provide lessons and guiding for everyone, from complete beginners to advanced pounder-hounds, we have instructors and guides able to make your snowboarding experience the best. By having our very own in-house equipment rental shops in La Plagne and Val d’Isère means we’ve been able to team up with Burton and offer the best quality snowboards, bindings and boots to all our clients.

So instead if you have had one weeks’ experience and are already able to master simple turns on easy blue runs, the next step to take is to join our ‘Intermediate/ Progression’ snowboard course. This group will take you to the next level naturally without putting you in any situation where quite literally a ‘slip-up’ could happen.

Some important tips to remember when snowboarding are to relax, have fun and enjoy the slide. When you let your body do all of this you’ll find snowboarding comes naturally quicker, and you’ll be surprised after one week with Oxygène what you’ll be able to do.

We have had over 20 years of teaching experience and our knowledge goes further than that, therefore trust in the winter sports experts as we will help you enjoy snowboarding for the rest of your lives…
