Great Snow in the low resorts
The theme of these last few blogs is stay low. It has been very cold and the snow in the lower resorts has been as good as it gets. However high up the wind has been wrecking the snow making it heavy , dangerous and difficult to ski. With this in mind I travelled again to St Gervais with Susannah Frieze and many of her friends. Susannah apparently won a chalet holiday in a raffle!! We skied in the trees [and sometimes just over the trees.]
Yesterday we skied in Les Contamines where we had a very good morning and then after lunch the sun came out contrary to all the weather forecasts which was wonderful for the visibility but it got very hot and wrecked the snow a bit.
