It seemed strange to leave England’s fantastic snowy weather and arrive in France for a week’s skiing only to find it raining! But of course up higher it was snowing.
As Anna says, one skiing picture looks a lot like any other. That is unless the skier in question is one of the real French Olympic team (note to Ian 😆 ), so we took a trip out one evening to see the French slalom ski team at the floodlit les Planards. The last time I was at les Planards it was to whizz down the concrete toboggan run in the summer! 😛
As everyone knows, Chamonix goes Mad on New Year’s eve…
In between the rain when we thought we actually stood a chance of seeing where we were going, and when the lifts were open enough to warrant the trip out, we took to the slopes.
The traditional reward for a day on the hill … cake! :yum: Sorry, the camera lens had fogged up from the transition from freezing cold outside to warm in – but we couldn’t wait any longer for it to clear, the cake’s looked too tasty! 😀
