Where to Ski and Snowboard

Dave Watts, one of the joint editors of the above book, has joined us for a couple of days.   Yesterday John and I found some new snow to make tracks but today, with Dave, we skied the whole mountain.  We started off on the Rochebrune ridge, finishing on the Ladies Downhill piste which was in excellent condition.  We then took the bus to Mont D'Arbois where Gordon left us and Jonny and Hannah joined us.  We skied over to the Epaule chair and down the Grand and Petit Epaule to Chatterix.  We stopped off for lunch at Le Gouet.  The others all had the croute de gouet but I bucked the trend and had the diots.
We then headed off to Mont Joux as Dave wanted to join the festivities at la Folie Douce.  It was the inauguration so it was busy.  John, Jonny and I threw a few moves to show them how it should be done wearing full ski kit. including helmet and goggles.  Then off home.  For pics see Dave's blog!
Snow is forecast for tonight, just as John and I come back to the UK to look after the grandchildren. Just our luck!  Back in about ten days time.
Still a few spaces to dash out this weekend.  See our website for details!
