Its been an EPIC season for snow and now at the end of March it still keeps coming!! We still have snow in the Village and conditions for this time of year are AMAZING!! Its ssnowing again now and yetserday was Bluebird , how bizarre is that?
The girls have had a go at snowboarding and really like it. They have picked it up well and are mangaing to come down blues and Anneha even did a red yesterday!! She did say her bottom hurt last night though lol.
Jonny is on his final assesment for his IML this week in the Pyrenees. He finishes today so we will find out soon if his 5 years of hard work has paid off and he can get his badge.
Lots of lovely guests been to visit. Bob Stratton reurned with a bunch of great people( Rugby boys) after 4 years of being away. They were fabulous with the girls too and taught them lots of games and tricks. James and Ben came too along with some new faces, some of whom were Welsh Supporters , right at the time they won the Rugby. We got some banter that week. The Fareham family joined us too, the girls got on great with their children. Harry who had only skied once before skied over the Water in Les Arcs..Brilliant.
Rory , with Zoe and Mac from Spain visited and he was such a good little boy!
Last week it was the XGames in Tignes for trick skiers and boarders. We went up twice and had a great time. Good atmosphere and the girls got lots of autographs too.
We have some new people who have christened the Basin in the Village. Brrrrrrr !!!!
Easter is upon us and we haven’t had the usual sunny warm springlike weather we are normally used too. We are hoping it come soon as it doesnt feel like the end of the Season is approaching. We love that time when you can relax in the sun with a beer after a good day’s skiing!
We have booked to go on a Flotilla holiday in July. First time we will have ever done anything like this , but really excited. We may have to take some lessons on the lake at Annecy to learn the basics.
The Tour De France passes close by again and through Annecy around 19th July so we will be watching again from various points along the way.
The chalet is still available for that week if there are any keen cyclists/Tour de France enthusiasts out there?
Here are some photos from the last few weeks.
