Sunshine, 15cms of fresh snow and more on the way. Happy March!

02 March 2019

Just a quick update as it's a powder day today so we're out on the slopes! 10-15 centimeters of snow arrived last night offering a lovely fresh blanket for us to cut fresh tracks through... There's more forecast next week too so a perfect start to March skiing. Come and join us! Hope to see you out here soon, John and Kathryn x

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.
