Everything set up in the motorhome now so we’re ready to visit the slopes. We’ve had conflicting reports about snow conditions and we’re eager to find out for ourselves. Sometimes the first day can seem to present unnecessary challenges, putting on boots takes longer than usual, forgetting an essential item or feeling rushed. Today seemed to go well, except for how uncomfortable my ski boots were, and they were on the loosest settings, it took a few runs to sort out the settings and then I was able to enjoy pain-free skiing.
We stopped at the Chalet le Fôret otherwise know as the Cavern for a coffee, one of the cheapest on the slopes and a chance to access some wifi. Snow conditions seemed good but the weather was very warm, hot even and in the afternoon there was a hint of wet snow, but nothing serious. We skied from Arc 1600 over to Vallendry and then up the Transarc into Arc 2000. We came back via the pool where skiers try and skim across the top of the swimming pool, unfortunately, it was covered and there was no action to watch.
We covered most of the main areas and the snow conditions were good. The forecast for the next few day is mixed and so more snow may be laid on the mountains.
