A fantastic outing!

10 December 2014

After ten days in the Pays Desert (which has been superb!) it was nice to have a total change of scenery when Michael, Luke, Jim and I dove over the Col into the Col Pers for the first time this season. The views and ambience were spectacular, and the snow was wonderful as well. We then ‘skinned’ into the Grand Vallon and had excellent skiing there as well, but needed to chose our line carefully to avoid the rocks. It was a treat to be out there again and with the soft light of early December it really was quite special. We finished off a top morning with some bonus turns after a ten-minute ‘skin’ under the bubble lift back down to the top of the Signal cable car.

Jean Marc and Oli were both up at the Fornet with their ski club groups and I think JM skied the Col Pers and Vallon as well. JM’s photo exhibition at the Marie’s will be running until mid-January so make sure to stop by and have a look. His book will be available at the office as well as the Marie.

A little snow is forecast overnight, but we need more than a little! Stay tuned!

Late breaking news! The Woman’s World Cup Race will be held here in Val d’Isere as the FIS inspectors like what they saw and feel the resort can get it organised.
