Early March has seen some curious weather with storms and snow settling in the village – yep, we had to get Lotty the Snowblower out which is really unusual for this time of the year.
It has been a touch disconcerting skiing through the trees with Thunder & Lightning reverberating all around. And, then you find a tree lying acoss the piste on the blue Lievre run in the Nyon sector!!
But, the good news snow conditions have been fab and we’ve had lots of guests who’ve been able to enjoy – My nephews the Cattigans and the new member of the Cattigan family Lizzie who was on skis for the first time, our regulars and great friends Nicki, Tim, Helen & Mark. Plus new guests – Johan & Dimitar, Ian Roberts and his group. Apart from the skiing (sorry Helen I really couldn’t avoid that Mogul field), many good lunches in our favourite mountain restaurants, a few drinks in Morzine’s various bars – William and Rita won the Trivial Pursuit Challenge whilst Dimitar seemed to be the Backgammon Champion!!
We even managed an excursion to St. Gervais and a journey on the Mont Blanc Tramway upto the Bionnassay Glacier – spectacular as it passes the skiing in Les Houches (Chamonix Valley) with stunning views and picturesque scenery. Thoroughly recommended!!
Here’s a few pics for you all to enjoy:
