Snowboarding

We have just spent a week in the Alps catching the last of a wonderful season of snow. The French snowboarding championships were about to be held in the same resort and we were treated to spectacular feats by fearless sportsmen. The best thing about our week was that, despite the looming championships, the resort was almost completely empty and one had that seldom experienced privilege nowadays of having the piste almost entirely to oneself.

It snowed 3 times whilst we were there so every day we had powder conditions. It couldn’t have been better.

… and just so’s you know I’m not exaggerating, here’s a view of one of the home-run pistes…

… not a soul in sight except for one of us. Bliss!!!
