What a difference a year makes ! (Well, 38 degrees C, anyway...) Last year there was very little snow (none in the village) , and the temperature at the "front de neige" was +19C. This year there was snow at Lyon airport, 235cm at the front de neige, and the temperature is -19C.
The problem this year is stopping all the snow on the roofs bringing buildings down. A problem that isn't always solved successfully...

A couple of good days skiing, yesterday with the family, today over to Italy, since Jo was off on an all day snow-shoe excursion, and the other had booked a private lesson so needed to be back at ESF at 12:30.
The weather is supposed to warm up, though it's currently cloudy with light snow forecast for tonight. It was certainly cold in the pass once the wind got up!
