We've just had 2 days staying with friends at La Tour, just outside Argentiere. We skied Argentiere Thursday and Friday. Thursday started off fine and cold but the cloud slowly crept down the mountain and we came down for lunch and then went home. Friday was a beautiful day - clear, cold and sunny. Argentiere. like here, as had only a dusting of snow over the last 3 weeks and everything is hard. For those who haven't been it is north facing and quite challenging skiing - there are very few blue pistes. Most of the skiing is off piste as it is a large bowl. However, my knees won't take much more of hard icy moguls and it was nice to get back on to groomed pistes in Megeve today. It was busy this morning as the weather was beuatiful but it is the end of the French holidays and I suspect next week will be very quiet.
