It's been a funny week this week.   Monday and Tuesday was thick cloud and no visibility.  We took Monday off but skied Tuesday and found some powder through the trees.  We had a fun morning.  Wednesday dawned sunny and cold and was a brilliant day.  Thursday - back to cloud.  We skied for 2 hours and then went to IKEA - what an exciting life we lead!

Today was 25cms of new snow and though it started cloudy the sun came out and was one of the best day's skiing so far this season.   We went over to Jaillet and skied off piste down the field facing Megeve - someone had to be first! Then to Giettaz and then down the back to Praz Sur Arly.  It involved a fair amount of walking carrying skis, walking on skis, jumping or falling into streams and generally enjoying ourselves.

When we got to the bottom a mountain guide from  #Megeve whom we know, was sussing out the route as he was skiing with clients that afternoon.  I think we had the best of it this morning.  Carol came and picked us up which was great.  Gordon went up again but by that time John and I were exhausted.  There is more snow forecast so maybe we'll get some more off piste.  Here is a short clip of Gordon and myself  skiing down to Giettaz.   Why not book a short break and ski it yourself?
