The Christmas weekend got off to a fantastic start with clear blue skies and the last chance for some ‘quiet’ time before the Christmas crowds arrived.
After several sunny days the resort is pretty tracked-out and ‘skinning’ is a must to find virgin snow and solitude. On Friday we ‘skinned’ to the Crete du Genepy and enjoyed excellent snow top-to-bottom. The quality of the powder over the past ten days or so has been absolutely brilliant. Despite the snow-cover still being pretty thin in places with rocks lurking just beneath surface the skiing has been outstanding.
