Len’s Last Post from La Plagne

Dateline Saturday March 19… A warm morning at about +3C with fairly heavy snow falling outside Bon Coin.  Met Paul and Mel from Chalet Chanousia for my final ski of the season (I go back to UK on Mothers’ Day).  As the snow was wet and heavy we decided on an early lunch which turned out to be the right decision.  By 1pm the sun was poking its head through the clouds and we were on the bubble up to Roche De Mio for my final run down Inversens this year.  Absolutely superb snow and no people except ourselves.  With big grins on our faces we took the slow chair back to the top and then descended via La Source, the interesting “Red” with the steep bit in the middle.  Exhilerating is the word to describe our 2500 feet of vertical and we found the snow in Bellecote a bit sticky with the high temperature.  Back up Collosses chair and home to Bon Coin still in one piece after a Winter of amazing snow.  Will try to get in one more week before we close, but that’s a wish rather than a certainty.
