30 Mar 30th March 2010
We have had fresh snow this week and its set us up again for the end of the season. Everything looks clean and white again and we are still able to ski down right to the bottom in Villaroger. Conditions are once again great and the pistes well covered.
We have had some good days out with the guests. Jonny enjoyed doing a bit of skinning on the pistes with Andy and Gwen who kindly gave them their knowledge for his next project, Mountain Leader Course in May. Andy was already a ML and Gwen taking her exam in the next few weeks.
Italy has remained quiet on the pistes all season. Not sure why but its been nice to have the runs to ourselves. The new Arpette lift in Arc 1600/1800 has been a favourite of ours this season to access Arc 2000. Its really quick and the run down to it is always in good condition.
My mum and Aunty and Uncle came out last week. My Aunty had her first ski at 69 and managed to do some turns and stop. We visited the ice caves as well in Arc 2000. We had a wet day in Annecy but the sun came out for the last 2 hrs meaning they could see the lake in its full glourious blue.
Anneha had to have a pot on her ankle as she pulled the cartilage in her ankle. Shes not being able to ski for 4 weeks. Today she has been to hospital again and now has a pot on her wrist as she has broken a bone in it. Not skiing I must add but playing and slipped on the ice. This has meant she has missed some races with club.
Fi has been racing though and here is a link to her first Grand Prix in Villaroger click here.
Another few weeks left for us but we are already thinking about the Summer and bookings for the chalet are coming in so please get in touch if you want to come out and stay.
Here are a few pics from the last few weeks.
A friend of ours Lawrence Clayton took this fabulous picture of Villaroger by night, it looks stunning!!
