Lake Montriond is a little too cold to swim in, the wooly jumpers have been dug out, and with a scattering of snow appearing last Saturday… it really feels like winter is on its way! There’s only 10 weeks to go until the start of the season and we’re already getting excited at Jack & Jill, finalising our scrumptious menus and buying extra sledges for the chalet.
One thing to look forward to for the winter is the NEW 6-man chair lift at Chamossiere. This lift will replace the old 3-man chair and the drag lift, and will take only 5 minutes to get to the top! There are red and black runs and good off piste on Chamossiere, making it a firm favourite with experienced skiers. We love skiing there as there are breathtaking panoramic views of Mont Blanc at the summit!
We rode up to Avoriaz yesterday which was fantastic, an 800m climb that gets you beautiful views of Morzine and the valley below. That’s the last time I forget my gloves.. I could barely feel my hands after the speedy decent!
