High Hopes in the French Alps

Christmas Closing In

It’s been pouring down with rain all night , all through the day, and continuing through tonight, etc. etc.  The snow down here is melting although it may well be snowing up high.

The snow level is set to rise back up to around 2000 meters then fall again over the next couple of days or so, so we’ll see where it ends up by the latter part of the week when the weather is forecast to improve. Looking at the weather maps, charts etc. we’ve got pretty substantial cloud covering for a while yet.

Well, I’m pleased to report that some areas of Rochbrune are now open and it appears are set to remain so,  as well as Les Grandes Montets, although things can all change if the snow starts melting, so we may well get to ski again on Thursday morning. It’s certainly not much fun with zero visibility, heavy precipitation and wind, so we’re happy to wait.

As it wasn’t a day to venture out I decided it was as good a time as any to put up the Christmas tree, after all Santa’s going to need it, isn’t he?
