Fish and Pips have arrived in Meribel – and so has the winter. Since our arrival on Friday it has snowed on and off and now as I type sitting in Chalet Aurigny getting the heating working as quickly as we can before our fingers drop off, still it falls!
There is over a foot on the picnic tables outside Chalet Aurigny and the new hot tub, still covered in it’s protective wrapping is slowly disappearing! With reports of nearly a metre of snow at the top, touring up the Saulire is getting more appealing.
Although this early snow is great for us, logistics of the next few days need to be rethought out as driving conditions are hazardous especially with the endless stream of lorries and trucks bringing supplies up to the resort. New teams of staff can be seen wandering the town, getting the know the area and marvelling at the snow – I think concentration may start to wane during the next few weeks of inevitable set up and training as the temptation of the powder outside gets more and more!
