27th Dec 2006


Hope you have all had a great christmas and best wishes to everyone for NY.

We are so lucky here in that all our resorts with the exception of La Rosiere are open and to tell you the truth we have had decent snow. Up high its great and low down, especially in Les Arcs, there are that much snow making facilities not that coverage is good despite not having a snow fall now for a couple of weeks. Les Arcs actually has the most snow making machines in all of Europe now!!!

Most runs are open and we skied there the last few days in sunshine and blue skies.

Here is a picture from yesterday!



Ste Foy is not as good at the moment, the slopes are very patchy and stony and we are having to download on the first lift. Its not a problem for us though with having Les Arcs so close at hand. All we can say is we are in the right Valley again, with resorts not opening accross France and snow non-existent in Italy and parts of Austria!!!!

We have had a lovely time here, very busy with guests from 15th through until now non – stop really. We had a great time with our friends when they all came over for Tina’s 40th. It was hectic and we packed so much in, from helicopter trips to meals out and a trip up to Val D ‘Isere for a good night out. We could have done with a week off to recover.Thanks again for coming over and heres to the next 40 yrs Tina!!!!!!

Fletch , Gill , Andy and family were the next to arrive and everyone got on really well despite not knowing each other. We had sunshine and blue skies throughout and great entertainment from Harry Little. Come back soon.
This photo was taken at the end of the day after we all skied together!!!

We have now got Kevin Tomas and his family in and they are with us until Friday. Jonny took the girls to the live nativity on Christmas eve in Villaroger where they saw Santa and had vin chaud and hot chocolate. They were both very excited.
We all skied xmas day, Fi came with us too and then had canapes and champagne at 6pm followed by dinner at about 7ish. Some made it into the hot-tub with their champagne beforehand.Anneha and Fi ate with the guests too so it was a lovely time for us all.

Well I will close for now.

Don’t forget we still have a couple of rooms left for the week of 20th- 27th Jan which we would like to fill if we can tempt anyone.
