It’s been a while coming, but we finally have a covering of white over them thar mountains. A pretty decent covering at that -Sam was even caught online searching for telemarking tips in preparation. Les Arcs opens this Saturday so it couldn’t have come soon enough!
I’m even looking forward to a bit of skiing this winter although I have to admit I’m slightly apprehensive with 2 dicky knees and a lot of pregnancy relaxin still floating about in my ligaments. I’m more into the coffee/vin chaud at the top of the mountain type of skiing anyway, so fingers crossed my body can cope with that! We’ve still got plenty space at the Snowinn this winter if you fancy a bit of skiing or boarding action this winter.
As you can see from the photo there were 2 mini Morrises who were very happy to see the snow too. Rowan had a tantrum when we made her come back in. And yes, the snowman is a Jambo. (Sam is making me point out that a Jambo is a supporter of Hearts FC, – jam tarts, therefore jambo. My dad’s fault).
The snow does however, put a full stop on Sam’s mountain biking and trail exploring for the time being. 3 days ago he could have done sketchy dismount & today you can’t even go along the bike path to Bourg St Maurice!
