High Hopes in the French Alps

Snow Wonder, it’s Only January!

13th January 2015 – slopes almost bare!

Haven’t had much to report of late, reason… No snow, or not enough decent stuff to enjoy skiing on, and too strong wind, to get the gliders out the bags! Having said that, I did have a birthday… on the 13th. Weird weather for the 13th January, have to say, as it was like an early spring day down valley, as the snow that we did have, had all but melted. The temperatures were far too warm to consider it one of those typical winter days! Certainly, a first for me this time of year.  So the entertainment was pretty sparse to say the least.  In the end, short of a trip to the bowling alley, we had a pleasant stroll ’round the lake, and an enjoyable meal out!

We have been occupied on the road, and bar the one day of crazy snow fall, that made the news, and had us caught out, everything has returned to relative normality! We managed a lovely day winter flying, in Les Houches, from both launch sites, and a flight from Plan Praz. Lovely silky smooth winter air, cold but oh, so bathing! for want of a better word!

We did some skiing, but the snow was packed, icy, fake or artificial should I say, and not very pleasant, decided to wait for more snow before heading for the slopes again. Which, amazingly enough has arrived, and that today, and it’s still arriving…. 🙂

snow is here, and still arriving, and not too soon either!
