Family skiing

All the family arrived on Sunday together with 2 other families, so there are 8 adults and 9 children in the Clochettes.   John and I are sleeping in the Sylvana!   T he weather has been good, particularly the first 2 days, and the grand children are doing amazingly well at their skiing.   Emily and Anna (both aged 10)are having lessons with Katie Campbell.  She has been teaching them since they were 5.   Lizzie and Tommy (8 tomorrow and 5) are sharing a lesson with Maya.  In the afternoon we are skiing with them which is hugely rewarding and good fun, particularly as they like following Grandma "because she skis fast". 
On Tuesday evening we had the works outing to the luge at Les Saisies.  Not only did all the staff go but also most of our guests.   There were about 60 of us with a long convoy of vehicles looping up the mountain.  It was snowing quite hard (just like last year).   The luge is a roller coaster and is very exciting - it's obligatory to scream as you hurtle round the corners.  Most of the lifts close this weekend although the lifts at Cote, Lanchettes and Petit Fontaine stay open.  There are very few people around. We ate at the Gouet yesterday and the Radaz today and in both restaurants virtually all the guests were English.
