Day 17: Meribel & Trois Vallees

A beautifully sunny, but cold day.
Mont Blanc in the distance shrouded in cloud (from the top of Saulire)
Over to Courchevel, but the snow there is very icy, a lot seems to be the man made stuff, which is compressed and icy underneath with a thin layer of powdery snow on top. Much less pleasant than in La Thuile (and La Rosiere) last week.
Espresso Euro 2.30 in Courchevel, and 2.20 at Les Cretes. The snow seemed slightly less icy in Meribel and over towards Saint Martin, but there's an awful lot of exposed ground and rocks with no snow.
Maybe I'll try Val Thorens and Les Menuires tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Mary's day off (because new guests are coming on Wednesday she's taking it a day early). I may go to the "friendly" ice-hockey match in the Olympic ice-rink since it's only Euro5, and I've never seen live ice-hockey.

  1. "Friendly" ice hockey, what an excellent concept! Make sure you make a sign that insults the referee to take with you!
