We have again been able to obtain fantastic rates from the lift company (S.A. Telepherique Du Pleney), giving us about 20% off their best on-line pre-booked prices.
As happened last year the Morzine Tourist Office (open 8.30am-7.30pm 7 days) will hold special ILSC vouchers for each skier which need to be collected (preferably by Team Captains) and handed in when purchasing passes from the Pleney skilift station. In addition we will keep some of these vouchers at the Hotel Equipe and if you are going to arrive late in the evening, let me know how many and when, so we can try and make a plan to leave them for you (at Hotel reception). Unfortunately, people staying in Les Gets also have to collect their passes in Morzine in the same way as the 2 resorts have different lift companies. For the location of the Tourist Office, Pleney Ski Lift Office and Hotel Equipe, see the map on the About page - HERE
The Morzine / Les Gets pass covers the area we will use for the races. The Portes du Soleil pass covers, in addition, all the connected areas from Avoriaz right across the region. For those people staying for the whole week, it should be possible to buy the PDS pass for the first few days and then get a Morzine/LesGets pass for the competition days. If you decide to do this, you will need an extra (2nd) voucher from the Tourist Office. If you are only coming out for the competition days, the Morzine/LG pass should be all you need.
There may be a further discount for concessions (over 60) and over 75s get a free pass (passport/proof of age is required!)
There is a standard €3 cost added for the rechargeable card. These can be saved and used again.
Here are our rates for the two types of pass:

6 days€ 168.00/ person
5 days€ 148.00/ person
4 days€ 118.40/ person

Ski & Equipment Hire 1
Once again we have been offered a great deal by Star-Ski Sports for ski, boot and helmet hire. They are happy to give us a discount of 20% off their (already competitive) rates and I am assured that they will have a good stock of quality skis suitable for racing. When you make a booking, just mention "Livery Skiing" either in the comments on their booking system or if you speak to them in person. Their shop is at 77 Route du Téléphérique du Pléney just a 2 minute walk from the Pleney Lift Station. There isn't normally a discount on hires of less than 4 days. so this is a great deal. If you have special requirements they have requested that you email them in advance and tell them what you need. It all seems a bit laid back but has worked well for the last few years. Our discount may not show during booking, but will be applied when paying in the shop. They will also store hired skis and boots in their shop overnight which is convenient for the skilifts. Here is a link to their website Star-Ski Sports

Ski insurance (racing cover)
It is imperative and a condition of taking part, that everyone racing and training has the required ski insurance.
Most ordinary holiday ski policies, including those offered with some bank accounts, do not cover racing. We introduce you to our house provider and sponsors, MPI Brokers where you can obtain good value insurance - even for short periods (minimum 3 days), which does include our type of ski racing, under their ‘Wintersports’ policy.
“You will be offered various options from three package levels (Economy, Standard and Excel). You can ‘pick and mix’ for example deleting the cancellation cover, or adding cover for Laptops (NB You do NOT need the National /International Racing add-on, for this level of racing, which is one of the other options available).
For those who have alternative insurance and simply wish to boost it for the racing, you could just purchase a Winterports Economy Package, which would provide cover for mountain rescue and emergency medical whilst skiing/amateur racing.
We are aware that some people have relied on Carte Neige as a backup alternative in the past. Whilst it covers mountain rescue and limited local medical cover it does not cover Third Part Liability or full medical and repatriation and thus does not satisfy the insurance requirements for this event.
Those who arrive in resort with no insurance can even buy from MPI on line at the very last minute, provided there has been no incident or special circumstances (such as extreme old age!).
