19th Dec 2007

First week of the season has been and gone and what a week we had with Phil and the boys, Harry and Lisa and Boo, Gav and Gonz. No-one would have known they didnt know each other as they all got on so well and made it a great start to the season, so thankyou.

The snow was amazing , the boarders found lots of powder. We sorted a guide out for the day who came up trumps and found them some good pitches.

We skied in Val for a couple of days and then Ste Foy and Les Arcs.

All over the snow is amazing.Ste Foy did a promotion on the Sunday where the lift pass was only 11 euros for the day.

Michel opened La ferme and of course we all went after skiing.


The mutsig was flowing and of course the “Basin Challenge ” got mentioned. The 2 guys who rose to the bait were Harry and Geezer, well done you 2, you made Solange’s night (our neighbour).

She has missed all the excitement this summer. Shame Harry lost his way to the hottub after, prolonging the agony of Geezer and hypothermia.

Mind you he could have ended up in Italy, just like on the night he arrived, couldn’t you Harry?

Jonny skied in La Rosiere on Monday but the weather was very wild and cold and the link to Italy was closed. The run down into Villard Dessus(SEEZ) was fabulous and practically unskied so it was worth going for that he said. Well we have Jim and Anna in next with all the xmas guests arriving this weekend. We have been planning the cocktails for xmas day this morning and writing the shopping list.

All the xmas present shopping is done so we feel quite organised this year.

Have a great time everyone and look forward to seeing you next year.
