    Well at least we actually have some now! In the north there's been more for a while, here in the south it's really taking off this week with fresh powder for the first time to speak of ( it rained as well as snowed last week ) and the weather forecast looking up for next week.

    Time to get out and play...can't wait.

    Anyone around? Some of you ( you know who you are) better get a wax on. Blink or you might miss it! Stay safe though x

    In Montegenevre, now Puy Saint Vincent, over to Les2A and Alpe d'Huez shortly. Rather around, as over is currently not on the menu for MH's.

    We have parking booked at VT but might move on if we become bored!
    We are keeping an eye on the snow forecast and hoping for some nice powder to try out our new skis!

    Off to Pila on the 14th, going with a tour operator due my working in a school so sadly can't afford the leisurely drive. Flying from Bournemouth which is a bonus though. Driving to LDA at Easter. May even possibly purchase a new pair of boots at some point. I deserve a treat.

    Looking like a good dump next weekend.
    Must make a note to oneself to put ones foot down on the autoroute!
    That way, we'll be up the mountain before it all goes white!
    Fresh powder is best tackled on skis, not wheels!:)
