01 May 25th April 2012
Snow , snow and more snow, as those who follow us on TWITTER will know. What an end to the Season, although Les Arcs is still open until 29th April 2012. Tignes and Val until the first week in May.
The past week has seen over a metre of snow fall in just over 2 days. We have been skiing knee deep powder up until the 25th April, unbelievable!

The weather is now warming up, infact its been 25 degress today which meand all that snow thats fallen will start to get heavy and fall off the mountain. This does not bode well for ski touring at the end of the season as it will be too dangerous.
Jonny is now in training for the www.piste2plage.com challenge in aid of Help for Heros. Its a 440km cycle from here Sainte Foy to Juan Les Pins in the South of France. They will have to cycle over 27,500 vertical feet, climbing and descending 7 of the infamous Cols often seen on the Tour de France. Its a massive feat and Jonny is hoping to raise in excess of £1000 for Help the Heros.
If anyone would like to make a donation to this worthy Charity you can find my fundraising page on www.bmycharity.com/JonnyKaye. Its quick and easy to make a donation. Thankyou in advance.
The girls have just had a week off school and May is a funny month with lots of Bank Holidays here in France. We have all got our bikes out and trying to support Jonny as much as we can.
The caravan will be heading out too soon , as the nice weather will soon be here to stay.
Don’t forget you could take your Summer holiday here with us in the Chalet , still got availability. For you walkers, cyclists out there now is a great time to pay us a visit, we could even do some catering for you if you prefer not to cook. Please get in touch to discuss.
Finally we would like to thanks everyone who came to stay last Season and helped make another successful, enjoyable Winter , with lots of laughs and new friends made. THANKYOU!!!!!
