Kathryn below Ideal Megeve.jpgAfter 3 weeks of warm weather, winter has returned and its been snowing on and off for most of the past week. Cold - back to long johns and heated gloves.  Hard to believe there's only 4 1/2 weeks left of the season.  We had a break in the snow a couple of days ago and had a morning's sunshine so above is a pic of Kathryn making fresh tracks below the Ideal restaurant in Megeve.

That was a couple of days ago.  Since then it hasnt really stopped snowing  There's nobody out skiing - pistes are deserted.  The Parisians have gone home after their holidays so you ski straight on to all lifts.  Today we skiied off piste all morning fresh tracks all the time.  Here is a youtube clip.  Neal's first day off-piste!


Skiing Powder In Megeve 31Mar18
Ali in powder

So today we were up bright and early and at the bus stop for the 8.40 bus.  But no bus.  They have changed the bus time table as the French holidays are now over.  But we got to Mont d'Arbois soon after the first lift.  And then we skied down to the Mont Joux chair which was late opening because of the fresh snow so we went up the Freddy drag and put in some fresh tracks there. They immediately opened the Mont Joux chair so it had been skied a bit but we came down under it because Epaule had not yet opened.  Anyway we then did have success on the Epaule.  We were on the second chair and first down the off-piste under the lift.  As we went up again Ali and Matt and children were skiing down so we joined them and then skied over the back in deep powder to the Porcherry.  Seb said he had a spectacular wipe out but no-one, other than his Dad, saw it.  The rules of wipe outs are that they must be in front of everyone.
