Len in La Plagne, 4th February 2019

After several days of heavy snow and very cold weather (restricting my ski activities) it was such a pleasure this morning (Monday Feb 4) to wake up to sunshine.  Rees, Annabel and myself met up with a 25 years continuous client of Silver Ski, Ian, and we all enjoyed the most fabulous snow conditions.  By mid-morning we were feeling brave so decided to ski the black “Malatray” below the Crozats chairlift.  A gentle run in at the start was very pleasant and as we rounded the two old farm buildings to get to the steep bit, what a wonderful surprise to find that the piste machine had turned the difficult moguls into sweet music.  We were all on a high after that and thought that it was to be the most memorable route of the day.  How wrong was that?  After lunch at Monica’s we set off over Blanchets and into Levasset on the Champagny side where we dropped into the valley running alongside the piste.  Wow!  Soft and deep snow made hard work but such exhileration that we were all out of breath from doing so many short turns… one of my personal favourites was at its best today…. and the smile on my face tells the whole story!!!
