Our resorts are all still open and as I have said before we are certainly doing the best here for general conditions. Up high the pistes are great, yes we do need more snow low down but we are still enjoying great skiing, so once again ignore all the hype on the TV for our area.
The other day the pistes were so quiet we were totally alone on some runs, so it just shows people are been put off from coming, but they are definitely missing out.
Snow is forecast for tonight, and then a big dump next Tuesday apparently.
We have just had a fantastic weekend for my birthday. The chalet was taken over by friends from England and we have had an action packed few days!!!Thankyou so much to everyone that came and for all my lovely presents. You all made it really special and I cannot wait until we see you all again.
We all skied together in Les Arcs and had lunch at Chalet De L’Arc, in 2000. Nat my sister who has not skied much did great by skiing all the way there and back. She deserved her Mutsig at the Ferme that evening.My friend Jo arranged for the balloon man to make my a mini mouse hat there, and insisted I wore it on the slopes, until it fell off so we strapped it to my rucksack.
We also skied in Ste Foy and had good conditions again. Then it was back to the chalet for a hot-tub before getting ready for the party Saturday evening. We had it at La Ferme and arranged a band and food etc.Our french friends came too and were even up dancing, and we finally finished at 4.30am. Thankyou to everyone that came and once again all the lovely presents. Big thankyou too to Don and Emma who flew in on saturday evening then left first thing Monday, you must be mad!!!! Also Mac and Zoe who came from Spain.
Here are some pics from my birthday weekend.
Anneha has started Villaroger ski club and now skis with them every Wednesday pm and Saturday pm. Fi has been on her skis again and is starting to enjoy it.
We have a little break now to recover until our next guests arrive, Stephen Fry and family and the lads from Silsden. Looking forward to seeing you all.
My mum also arrives this weekend so we are all excited about that.
Will close for now and write again soon.
