Alptitude!

High Hopes in the French Alps

More fun in Megève

Young 'uns enjoying the Snowpark

Another excellent morning on the sunny slopes of Megève. The snow was still in good condition and the skiing was just great! Really, really enjoyed it.

... and more!

For me it was probably one of the best ski days so far, but unfortunately this time my video camera had a flat battery so I couldn’t record any of it. Partway down the red Mt. Joux run traversing across then tracking our way through the moguls we stopped by the ‘snowpark’ area to watch a couple of young ‘uns doing some jumps! They looked superb… what fun. It was another beautiful day and we also skied the L’etudiant red, which was a powerful ski down, very exhilirating. Since skiing that run, I’ve since discovered that there is an ‘off piste’ section that takes you through the trees back to the bottom or there is also a possible longer route round to Le Planelet. Will have to look into that route next time.

As it happens today was our last ski day until next week as the Transfers are resuming from this evening. The weather is due to start to warm up from tomorrow and no more precipitation is forecast so the snow will probably deteriorate now for a while.

When we got back there was a DHL delivery notice stating a visit. It’s Dennis’s glider, we missed the delivery by 15 minutes! No problem though as we’ve rearranged it for tomorrow, so I’m going to be confined to the house until it arrives. No sneaking off to the slopes then…??

Have decided to have a go at putting together a little video of the last couple of days, will see how I get on. Also I remembered my mini gps if you’d like to see todays ski route.
