With skiing a total write-off, I was getting a bit fed up in the lead in to Christmas so decided that if the snow wasn’t going to come to me I would go to it.
Got on my motorbike on Xmas Eve with skis strapped to my back and rode up as high as possible and then skinned up to ski on the glacier above Sainte Foy. Quite a good outing as it turned out and my first ski of the season – horrendously late.
Went out with the kids on motorbikes for a decent ride on Christmas Day – shot below is one of the very bare pistes in La Rosiere.
And then, mercifully, the snow came. About 30cm. It’s stayed cold so the snow has hung around but it’s getting a little bare on the lower slopes.
