Up and running!!!!

Fortunately enough snow has arrived to kick-off the new season and we’ll all be ready to go next Saturday. Looking at the webcams this morning it looks stunning with clear blue skies and a fresh blanket of pure white snow. Fingers crossed for similar weather on Saturday!

Don’t forget TJ is coming and will be skiing from around the 11th of January until the end of the month so let me know if you’d like to ski with TJ again, and Pietro is going to help us out from time to time this season. He’ll need some notice and either private bookings or large enough groups to make the trip from Italy worth the journey and family disruption.

See you all soon!

Hopefully just in time!

As I’m sure you’re aware there has been a prolonged period of unseasonably warm weather in the Alps. Unfortunately whatever early snow that fell has now melted away, except on north and west-facing slopes at altitude where a little snow has remained. But the good news is that heavy snow is forecast next week, and that the STVI are confident that the forecasted snow will be enough to open on Saturday the 28th as planned. Yahoo!!! The place just never seems to let us down!

I’ve checked several websites and forecasts, and the amount of snow expected varies quite drastically, from a day or two of light snow to over 200 cm’s, but let’s stay positive and hope for the best!

I’ll be arriving with Chris on the 26th and will be ready for opening day, and of course the 2015-16 Daily Diary will be up and running with news, weather, sports and photos. Stay tuned!

Wow, that was sensational !!!!

We’ve returned from an absolutely wonderful trip to India, and it couldn’t have gone any better. The girls both embraced the Indian culture and dealt with everything that was thrown at them. They loved the people, the colours, the sounds, the bird and wildlife, the cities, towns and villages, and the farming communities. They enjoyed the stunning food, the brilliant weather and the adventure, the unimaginable sights, and the organised chaos that happens every time you step into a car. It was incredibly educational, and best of all it was fantastic fun!

Mary Anne from Mahout put together a brilliant package for us and worked it all into our budget. We stayed in some fantastic properties, ate in great restaurants and were really well taken care of. If anyone is interested in visiting India do not hesitate to get in touch with her. She knows the market from top-to-bottom and will put the perfect package together for your needs.

I’m only subjecting you to around 230 photos out of 2000, so hopefully I won’t bore you too much with them!

Stay tuned as the winter is rapidly approaching and the early snow cover looks pretty good. Fingers crossed that it keeps snowing and see you all soon!
