We have had some really warm weather lately which has meant we all have brown faces and no need for thermals. We skied over to Italy the other day and it was spring like conditions. We ate at a new restaurant we had been recommended and the pizzas are so good!!!! Anneha and Fi have been on school holidays so Anneha came too. Here are a couple of pics from the trip.
We had a good time with Andy and Jackie and Sue and Bob who booked very last minute. I skied with them in Les Arcs and the conditions were perfect and very quiet to say its holiday time.
Tony, Darren and Joe enjoyed the boarding although Joe hurt his knee on the first day. He did manage to board again though on the last day so hopefully nothing too serious there. We have just said goodbye to Keiron and Mel,who enjoyed lessons with Pierre, and we have Martin Andy and Mark here now along with the Weetmans, The Bears and the Buntings.
Siobhan and her 4 colleagues joined us last week and they had a great day in Italy as well as skiing Les Arcs. Peter Birks has made a return visit (2nd time this season) along with 3 friends.
Today it is snowing and is forecast to on and off all week. Jonny is still trying to keep training despite having a groin strain which he thinks happened whilst skinning up Villaroger the other day. He’s visited the Physio who has given it some treatment and will hopefully be sorted soon. It was Boos birthday and Harvey, Archie, Anneha and Fi made him a cake, which they insisted we put 43 candles on!!!!!
Karl has arrived, for all those that know him, for his 3 week chalet boy stint!!!! Unfortunately he is not skiing as he has fallen and hurt his shoulder. He too is at the Physio as we speak. We have Jo and Mick Thompson in this week along with their friends and they are skiing the powder in Ste Foy today. Conditions are generally good, snow a bit sparse below 1200 metres, but plenty up high.
This fresh today will liven things up again. We still have some availability 1st – 15th April 2008 and are offering discounted rates so give us a call if we can tempt you to come.
Don’t forget this Valley is well known for late snow, so if you are thinking of an end of season trip this area is the best.
Bye for now.
