Back in La Rosiere

Back in La Rosiere with the family, but in a new (to us) chalet. This year we have the chalet to ourselves. Food and hospitality as good as ever, with Alex and Emma doing a great job.

Tea laid out ready for tired skiers

The weather hasn't been great so far this week, with lots of grey clouds on the pistes and snow, so we haven't made it to Italy yet. As the sign said "Italy is closed" (which may be a slightly extreme view!).

Alison threatened by a mad marmotte
We had a good day today despite the grey weather, with an off piste lesson in the morning with ESF. Ashley got stuck in a tree, and Jennifer is probably now ahead of Alison on points in the "Breaking ski-poles" competition, since she managed to break one of the instructors poles, which counts for three points as against Alison's two for breaking both her own poles. (Breaking someone else who isn't an instructor would be 2 points). By the end of the lesson everyone more or less had the idea, and was enjoying themselves.
After lunch more just off piste, with nice snow everywhere.

I wanted to take a picture of Mont Blanc for Roger, since he's so keen on them, but we haven't seen it yet...
