The last two days we have had sunshine, though with mist in the valley.  Yesterday we skied with Gordon in the morning and some of the staff in the afternoon.  We took the new Epaule chair which is six man  and FAST and a huge improvement.   We skied off the back and all the way down off-piste to St Nicholas which was fun.  A lot of the off-piste has been skied out but we found some which hadn't.  We had a quick lunch at the Alpage at Communailles which has been sold by Marie and Eric (such a shame as they were nice) but the new lady who has taken over has kept the same menu.

Today Gordon has gone home for Christmas.   We went up the Rochebrune ridge but not much is open. I think they are keeping it for Christmas week.  However, there is a new restaurant at Alpette which looks exactly like the old one.  It didn't appear to be open so it may not be finished.  We skied down and went back to Mont D'Arbois.   We skied the Mont Rosset field and then skied all the way down to the bottom of the Princess run twice, as the snow was so nice and not tracked.

The photo shows how beautiful it was.  The Etudiant lift was running so we decided to ski all the way back  home via Planellet.  The field was perfect, very few people had skied it though Gordon had been down it the day before.  We got home about 2pm and had a bowl of soup and some cheese.  By then, the mist had come down and the visibility wasn't so good.
