More Megeve powder

Yesterday we had a cold band of freezing fog but today was partly sunshine. John and I skied with Gordon and his friend, Andrew, who is a Ski Club of Great Britain rep, and a very good skier.  We skied down to the St Nicholas bus but got there half an hour early.  The alternative was to walk up hill, in ski boots and carrying skis for about a mile to the ski lift.   I opted to wait.   By the time we got up to the top again I was cold and John and I decided to ski home back to Megeve via Planelet.   The snow was lovely but it was freezing.
Today was staff day off and John offered to show staff the off piste if they caught the 8.50 bus.   Only Hannah made it.   We had a brilliant morning, making fresh tracks in some places.   We skied the Face of Jaillet and then through the trees to the Chattaz bus.  We had to change buses and while we were waiting saw Gordon and Andrew skiing down the Face.  They missed the bus.  However, by the time they got to the restaurant by the Jaillet lift their beer and food was waiting.  What service!  We then skied a different route down to the Chattaz bus which failed to appear.   John decided to walk into town, the rest of us got rescued by Carol in the car.   By that time it was a bit late to do another run so we ended up in the St Paul bar.   What a great day in Megeve.

Still short ski breaks and weeks available w/c 22nd Feb.  Do e-mail us for details.
