19th Dec 2008

We’ve had a lovley start to the season with a trip up to Tignes last week and the opening of Les Arcs last Saturday.

The snow has been on and off all week and we have had up to a metre up high. In Val D’Isere and Tignes over 1m fell overnight, with another 80cm the following night. Its the most snow we have had at the start of the season for 50 years.

The Carpet, Locksmith and IT conference went well this weekend with a few Mutsigs flowing and some powder to be had. The boys had a great time and Gonz proclaimed himself as a ski god due to his new skis, Scott Crusaders!!! That is even after a slight collision with Jim(lets see how fast we can go) Lloyd.We recorded a speed of 60k’s on one piste. Gav excelled himself and skied effortlessly, so much so we may have to drop the name MALINGERER!!!

I have skied tody with Tony in Les Arcs. Conditions are superb with no-one on the pistes. We could not believe how quiet it was. W have had a forecast of sunshine most of xmas week so the Hopkins family and the Hilton family are in for a great time.

The turkey is ordered and the champagne waiting. We are looking forward to a family ski on Xmas day, along with the live nativity and Pere Noel’s arrival on a skido Christmas Eve.

We would like to say a Merry Xmas and happy New year to you all and hope to see you soon.

Below are a few photos from the week.
