Chalet L’Atelier welcomes some of the finest skiers in Europe and New Zealand to Morzine this week as the Planks Pro Team have come to stay and enjoy our alpine chalet life for a week.

The team arrived on Sunday night to a full 4 course meal and after an hour of meeting the chalet hosts and planning the day ahead, the guys prepped their equipment for an early start on the mountain.

Olly the Mountain Mavericks head honcho gave up his valuable time to guide the team around the Ports du Soleil backcountry, showing them the best secret powder hotspots! Tomorrow (Tuesday 13th January), the guys will be hiking and touring around the Fornet area so keep your eyes open on the chairlifts.

                                                                                   Olly Lambourne the ski guide from Mountain Mavericks guides Planks Clothing professionals around Morzine and Avoriaz

The freestyle riders will also be based in the Avoriaz park, so ifyour riding past make sure you go check them out. After riding on Wednesday they will all be heading down to L’Aubergade Hotel for an live music aprèssession with Zuri Aura playing classic hits with a live dub twist from 8pm-10pm.

Remember it’s also our Wax:On Wednesday deal too, so if you spend €10 at the bar during happy hour (4-6pm) you can get your board or ski’s waxed for FREE! So come on down and hang out with the Planks team and if your super lucky you may even get some free Planks stash!
