    Reckon we're gonna try Montgenevre for a couple of days then Serre Chevalier both have aires so no problem. We never book, just keep an eye on the snow reports then up an go but always try to avoid French holidays. We've skied both resorts in the past although many years ago so be nice to see how they've changed plus an easy run into Italy if the fancy takes us.

    After the last 2 years suffering from poor snow in our beloved southern French Alps, especially early season, we are 'waiting and seeing' but hope to take the van out in March. We may even sneak in a cheap week (flying) in Jan if we spot a good deal and the snow is good :sneaky::xwink:

    Happy Christmas Moho Skiers!

    I must admit, that during the past year or so, I have had to somewhat curtail the ski slopes, due to ill health. :cry::cry: However, just to keep my spirits up, and show some willing, I still frequent the pie shop.......:xThumb:

    Cor that brings back memories went there over 20 years ago only just opened up then. Really run down no money after the Russians pulled out bet it's different now.
    Remember the hotels filling up with local girls at night and seeing them staggering out in the morning. Every morning the kids would ask awkward questions.:xrofl:
