Day 28: Tignes, La Daille

Last night I ended up eating in La Sachette, where I had a "small" Tarte au Beaufort (which was huge), and a mousse au chocolat.

A good meal composed of a starter and desert.

Today was Ben's half day, so we skied with him until lunch. Including coming down one of the "Nature Ride" runs, Golf, which are black unpisted runs. This one brought us down onto the road between le Lac and Val Claret at a bus stop.

After lunch I went up the Motte with Steph, as Greg is still nursing his leg. (Since the doctor said "You can't ski on that leg for at least six months" he's keen to get out skiing on the other leg. "The doctor didn't say anything about that.")

Lunch in Tignes le Lac 
It was windy at the top of the Motte, enough to persuade people they didn't want to go up there, so we got onto the first cable car, but not so bad the cable car was closed. We did top to bottom in about 9m10s, well inside the "Ben Ten", and without racing.
The market (all of it) in Les Brevieres

Down to the market to get some Beaufort Ete for lunch on Sunday. The stall keeper explained that the cheese is really too cold to taste when you're outside, but that it is the good stuff.

Last day in Tignes tomorrow. Ben is intending to take us over to Le Fornet, above Val d'Isere up on the Col d'Iseran.
