Vidéos Ski map of the wold's largest ski area : Les 3 vallées, in France - Page 2

post #31 of 51

It was in mid-March and rocks are on the lowest point of Valtho sector. There is few streams around rocks. You can see on the end of video after the rocks we go in to the slope Plan de L'eau.

Cool. I've usually skied there in April and the exit from Lac Du Lou is a bit bony by then. Are you accessing the Lac Due Lou valley from the top of the Boismint chair? Never done that slope?

Never done it through Lac do Lou :( 
From the Boismint chair we start at crossroad of Boismint and Blanchot piste...good line. 

 

(beneath is new exit point of Plan de Leau we go left)

 

This year they built longer, biger and faster chairlift Plan de Leau and we skied mostly from that point under the chair directly left on exit. Lots of valons, nice playground for some easy tricks.

I found video where you can see the line from Boismint chairlift...That was first time we go through that and friend of mine wasn't really good skier so we wait for him a while...

 

 

Mod Edit: Fixed broken video link.

Good vid ! :)

and 1080p@60 !!!

 

I don't tried this off-piste, too many rocks for me

 

I update my first message : second website added, in case of the first is down (free hostings are not 100% reliable)

 

;)

Cool videos.  Well done.

 

It's always amazed me how much ski resorts half heartedly approach their online media presence.  Trail maps are a big part of that.  I went on a trip to Telluride recently and was trying to plan things out ahead of time but their online trail map pdf was so low res that you could barely even make out the names of the lifts/runs.

 

We're not just talking little mom and pop resorts here, most of the big multi million dollar resorts won't spend a thousand bucks on a decent online setup.  They could probably have some $10/hr intern film every run in the resort AND write up a detailed description of each for their website in a month's worth of work.  Or they could just crowdsource it and open it up to submissions and have it done for free.

 

It was cool to see Aspen implement some high quality panoramic webcams recently.  It really goes to show just how sloppy the webcams at most of these places are.  Generally low resolution and poorly shielded from the elements so if there is any kind of weather (the time when you actually WANT to see them) they're fogged over or blown out of position.

Thx :)

 

I recognize that I am interested only in les 3 vallées, then I don't know the world ski resorts websites, even in France. My map has a correct quality, just correct. Recently, I have found a PDF high res on the Menuires website. I have transformed it in a jpg picture in order to make a V2 of my website. When I will have time...

For the moment, I should work on my new videos : I spent a week in Les Menuires (as usual :cool)

The weather report was average. February in the French alps was average. I had snow, then excellent snow on a big part of the domain. Off-pistes seemed to be very good (I have stayed on the pistes 98% of time because I ski alone and there was avalanche risk)

 

While waiting for my videos, here is my very first trailer :popcorn

Whoops, I wasnt clear. Did you program a site and do this? Did you use some special tools? Image to link editing? This is just so spectacular and would love to try this myself with a mountain here in eastern US. :)

My understanding is he took the videos, edited them and added them to a map via basic web editing. Maybe I'm not understanding your question? I've done the same thing with still images, i.e., linking a map to descriptions of the area you clicked on. I'm no trained programmer, you just need the right software.

Right, my website is very basic : you should have a HD map, you put a picture link where you need it (css coord) and the link launch your youtube video. cool.gif
I'm a computer scientist but not in web sites, i have learned alone with the net.
If your resort is geant, you should spend more than 10 days to shoot the entire domain. Me, 4x6 days and it's not over. Then, you can be delayed by clouds, fog, snow... people, battery, fall ! Enjoy your works smile.gif

Thank you very much Alf and Sib!

That place is amazing just in scope, I tried to ski from one end to the other one time and barely got back in time for the lifts to close.

Good one I enjoyed that vid.  Thanks for your efforts, keep up the good work, with all those black runs we can watch your skiing progress.

Merci ;)

 

I would like other people to make the same website in others resorts in the world, but I have never watched something.

It's not fun, it's to discover.

I'd love to see these from other resorts too... but it is a lot of work (and a lot of skiing!). Thank you for your site.

Especially a lot of skiing.

I have an idea, a good idea : give me 100000€ and I will make video map for the best French resorts. :D

One week per year, it's so much little... I need 5-7 years just for Les 3 vallées. 10-12 days is enough if you shoot all day and if it's sunny. But when I go into the Alps, it's for fun, for skiing, for me.

I love skiiing on Combe du Vallon, Marmottes, Chanrossa, Mauriennaise, Coraia, Combe de Caron, Lac de la chambre, Saulire, Mouflon... Necessarily, I prefer to ride on these pistes rather than to film green pistes in Courchevel Moriond. And in February, there is sometimes a lot of wait in places.
