Half term saw new guests the Warrs and Fields arrive at the chalet. Father, Barry Field and his good friend Roy also joined them. A great week was had in fantastic sunshine. True it was a bit busy but the guys managed to get into a good restaurant most days for lunch. The Viking’s Terrace on the top of Pleney was tried for the first time – it was a pleasant surprise!! And, the world famous Sherpa bar also saw some action as Joe, Father Barry and Roy enjoyed one or two Apres Ski beers (with the chalet host, of course!!). A lively and competitive game of Trivial Pursuit (on the Wii) was also enjoyed one evening – well done Joe & Ben for pipping the girls team (Joe & Louise) to the title, as the chalet hosts late challenge petered out!!
Jo Warr celebrated her birthday and was given a surprise visit to the Skiddoos in Praz de Lys (on the way upto Les Gets from Taninges). Much revving of engines over the snowy pistes and routes through the trees was enjoyed. Rita cooked a wonderful Beef Wellington with Dauphinois potatoes and made a fab birthday cake. While the boys – Alexander, William and James all made huge progress on their skis and passed their ski school tests.
Here’s a few pics:
