Ski or snowboard in control please and be aware of others. It’s called being considerate.
Maybe I’ve been lucky but haven’t seen any of this on this trip. One slightly agitated lady after she was cut up by a struggling snow plougher, apart from that just a lot of people having a great time.
We’re just on the way back North through France, just south of Dijon at the moment.
First day was Weds 8th.
Les Arcs for 2 days. Snowed overnight as we arrived and the first day, bit wet but helped to top the pistes up. 2nd wday good on piste up high but soft & wet lower down. Left because rain forecast.
3 Days in Val Thorens / 3 Vals (would have been 4 but storm day). First day snowing all day, top lifts not open but powder everywhere, half price ticket 😁. 2nd day storm day, chilled out mostly in the van. 3rd day morning cloudy, clearing for the afternoon, still plenty of fresh snow to be found. 4th day went over to Courcheval for a cruise, spring conditions low down.
2 days in Sainte Foy – epic, poured with rain for an hour after we arrived before turning to snow for the night and next day. Best powder I’ve seen for years & great accessible off piste. 2nd day bluebird – perfect 😎 Avalanche risk high so didn’t stray too far. Will definitely be back. Also zero queues and awesome hot dogs from the mountain restaurant.
1 day in La Rosiere, nice cruisy day. Went to La Thuile on the worst & longest drag lift ever. Thuile appeared to be a mostly flat plateau, didn’t stay long.
2 days in Le Corbier. Wished we’d gone back to VT. Spring seems to have given way to summer! Pistes were in awful shape and it was HOT. Finished today after tartiflette at the top.
All in an awesome trip, we did well at following the snow and making the best of the conditions. The dog came with us for the first time and he loved playing in the snow. The camper did great, only casually being the radio aerial from the weight of snow sitting on it 😞
If I was on my way to France now I’d probably go to Val T and not consider anywhere else unless there’s some snow forecast (there might be some due late this week?)
