High Hopes in the French Alps

Spring is Settling In :)

2016-04-10 13.35.21Yesterday, we were skiing, or making a lame excuse for skiing, today the sun is shining and the blossoms are flowering on the trees!

Today, there are people flying! It’s a lovely spring flyable day, and we have our first EPC client.

Tomorrow, it looks like winter may yet be returning, but who knows?! Flying is on the verge now, time to sort out equipment and stuff!

End of the Ski Season :(

2016-04-09T12-37-26+02-00Really sad that the ski season, is coming to a rapid close.

We’ve enjoyed some lovely skiing, but not enough for my liking this year… and am already considering ‘bigger’ plans for next season! Can’t wait! – Looking forward to expand my ski repertoire, somewhat so hopefully if all goes to plan a new venture may be in the offing!

Courmeyeur closed yesterday, and everything is gradually on the shut down…

I was quite desperate to get out on the snow yesterday, and we finally decided to venture up to La Balme, as there was at least a 35% chance of some sunshine, after a light overnight snow dusting. The closer we got, the greyer it was, no problem parking! wonder why?! And we were also offered a couple of passes, for next to nothing from some people who were trying to sell theirs!

Deciding, that we’d come this far, we decided to go up anyway, and at least give our skis an all but final run, for the season, and this is what we were greeted with!

Really very depressing… the conditions were as you can see or not!

It was ok-ish, but we only managed one run down in the miserable but ‘laughable’ conditions, which was enough! Bit pathetic really, but it was just bof!
