31st Dec 2011

We have had even more snow, so much that the torch lit descent and fireworks on New Years Eve got cancelled. That was a real shame as its a highlight of the festivities. However safety comes first and we realised it was the right decision. We had over a metre a half in our Village within 48 hours. Up above 2000m they had over 2m. Conditions for the holidays have been fabulous.

We had a great New Years Eve and skied the next day with sunshine. Its a record amount of snow here in the Tarentaise Valley for this time of year. The powder days have been frequent , although we have not seen much sun.

Snow clearing has been a daily event and the snow ploughs out every day too.

The link to Italy from La Rosiere has opened for the first time today and during the past week Val and Tignes have been on LOCK DOWN , with the road up to Val actually closing one day.

The girls are back to school now and we are settling back into a routine. Fi is skiing with the school every afternoon this week so we are helping with that.

Here are a few pics from the last 2 weeks.
