The ski season is only 6 weeks old and what a good one we have had so far, after such a good season last year you always wonder if the next one can be the same and so far it is with Christmas & New Year being the best we have had since moving here.
Skiing over the festive season was like March, plenty of powder, warm and blue skies. Then came a bit of a panic at the beginning of Jan was it going to snow again, the weather had been so go good but the pistes were getting a little icy. But the snow has once again arrived 30cm of fresh snow this week and the blue powder days are back.
We have skied both Les 2Alps & Alpe d’Huez, the infamous 16km Sarenne has been open and thoroughly enjoyed. You can argue it’s not a 16km black run but it’s still great. It’s not always about the colour of the runs. We continue to mostly go to Les 2Alps it being so accessible, on the snow within 30 mins and the new Diable lift has really speeded things up.
Not too many falls, enough to know we’re pushing ourselves, a new set of bindings for Alan which he loves, lot’s of sunny days and plenty of powder it’s been fab so far and let’s hope it continues to the end.
