Up the Hill!
Snow, snow and more snow! In fact, probably more snow here in Val d’Isere than we had the whole of last season. Roads have been closed to both pedestrians and vehicles making Saturday’s transfer day more than interesting. Chalet Killy was only accessible by climbing a mountain of snow and running the gaunlet…hard work with bags of laundry and camp beds not to mention guests and their luggage.
Anyway, the snow stopped for a while on Sunday and Team Val made it out onto the mountain for the first proper ski. Many of the slopes are still closed due to avalanche risk but the pisteurs are working 24 hours a day to bash it down and make it safe. With clear blue skies forecast for the end of the week and most runs open, conditions couldn’t be looking better for Christmas here in Val.
