Spring really did arrive early this year!!!

April 11, 2017

The weather in late March and early April was just fantastic. Bright sunny days and warm afternoons meant some great skiing in the mornings followed by lazy, long lunches and possibly some sitting in deckchairs absorbing the rays for some. Others, kept on skiing in somewhat heavy conditions (expected at this time of year) with the snow on the Avoriaz side of the mountain remaining pretty steadfast. We were still able to ski down to Switzerland (Les Crosets) and get to Chatel:)))  Although, getting to the Café des Sports in Morgins had to be put on the back burner til next season – we did visit quite often this Winter though!!

In April The Foxes returned this year (having missed last Winter) with our good friends Ian (Chef) and Fliss Brennan who came back for the second time this Winter! All ski’d lots, lunched well, enjoyed the sunshine and maybe, had a drink or two whilst enjoying the butiful, long Alpine evenings. They were also as warm and generous as ever – Thank You guys!

Then another new regular Judy Scott Garland arrived with her son Benjamin, cousin Sheila and friends – Louise, Jonah and Georgia. Cousin and friends were relatively new to skiing – enjoyed their lessons and Louise was amazed by the new Panorama she could experience when she ventured up/ out of the Lindarets bowl. And, felt a great sense of achievement having ski’d the Blue run, Combe a Floret through the trees back into the bowl. Some good games of ‘Chicken Charades’ and ‘Cards Against Humanity’ were also enjoyed after dinner.

All were amazed they were still able to ski so many runs, even in the Morzine/ Les Gets area and lunches outside in the warm Spring sunshine were just perfect. Here are the pics:
