50th wedding anniversary ski trip

 In this day and age being married for fifty years is an achievement in its self.  Going off-piste skiing as part of the celebration is possibly unique.

Fiona & Reuben celebrating 50 years of marriage.

Yet over quite a few years Reuben and Fiona have skied on their wedding anniversary with me and they could not see any reason to not continue in the same vein.

On our first day together we skied at Le Tour and combined this with a delicious lunch at the Cafe Comptoir in Vallorcine.  

On our second day we headed round to Les Contamines where despite the recent warm weather the snow cover was impressive- although strange to be skiing wonderful spring snow in late January.

On our third day we skied at Les Grands Montets.  The snow was firm, but because the resort faces north it wasn't icy and we did a lot of skiing before arriving at the "Cremerie"for a late lunch.

They are both an inspiration to anyone who thinks that they should retire from skiing , let alone off-piste skiing.
