Life in the Freezer…

Snowed all night last night so was on the first lift this morning & putting down some fresh tracks in the fresh snow by 9h30 – which really can’t be beat as a way to kick start the day 🙂 Carried on snowing for the rest of the day so another fun morning in store […]

Serre Chevalier; an Introduction…

Whenever I tell friends back home exactly where I’m living now they more often than not say “where?” So for those that don’t know here’s a good (snowboarders) introduction to the Serre Chevalier Valley – I nicked it off the Whitelines website (http://whitelines.mpora.com/directory/serre-chevalier.html) if you want to see the original Serre Chevalier is one of […]

Forward Thinking…

I know.  I’m living in the Alps, it’s the middle of winter and there’s plenty of good snow around but I can still think about next summer too…can’t I…?? Just another reminder of why the mountains are so special;  the air, the scenery, the sun…and the ride 😉 Check it out. The new 2012 Canyon […]

A Strong North-Wester…

Very windy up on the mountain this morning.  The cable car ride (1st section of the Tronçon) was ‘interesting’ as it was full of a group of school children and the thing was blowing around like a red shirt on a clothes line.  They seemed to keep remarkably calm with just the odd squeal here and […]
