/ Ice Climbing - Les Arcs
Any advice would be much appreciated!
ski over to la plagne and go jump on this bad boy.....
I've been on the big tripod tower thing. My first go at Ice climbing me and a mate 32 euros each for a couple of hours with an instructor and boots crampons helmet and axes are provided.
It's in a beautiful location set in amongst the trees. Is a bit of a drive round the mountain roads I was staying in la plagne and it was just over an hours drive but the roads aren't exactly fast round there. You can ski to it but in the evening the lifts stop then you can't get home. Oh it's all floodlight by the way! :D
