Day 1 and 2 on the slopes

You know that thing called the internet where you can find a wealth of info about Chamonix Mont Blanc lift status, snow conditions, weather and other useful stuff. Well having done endless research into aspects, altitudes and snow pack we still managed to walk to the Flegere lift only to find it was closed due to high wind so wandered back to the flat to get the car. Oops.

Anyway not bad for day one slacking after not leaving until 10:30.

We did get to the top of Brevant for amazing views and even found some mounds of fluffy stuff to stack into.

Today was a first down in Les Houches where we got chased off the mountain due to 140kph winds.

Still found this great outfit. Almost enough to get us to take up Snowboardimg.

Oh the most important development of course Maurice The Mammut has his own instagram hash tag


Day 3 Grand Montet….

And last word for the day is we must have settled in as we now have leftovers in the fridge. #intartiflettewetrust.
