Yesterday afternoon it started to sleet. By the time we were woken by the snow-plough at 7am this morning, about 10cm of snow had fallen, and it is still snowing! However, for our holiday it might still be too little, too late. There needs to be a build up of snow in order for the lifts to open. Yesterday we saw some brave (and fit) souls actually walking up the piste in order to ski back down. Unlike Tim, I am a fair weather skier and like perfect conditions and visibility. The upside is that we’ve saved about £100 a day as we haven’t needed lift passes!
We are in a residential area of Villars, high above the village, with direct access to the ski piste.
I’m trying to persuade Tim to go for a walk in the snow in order to check out the conditions, and, more importantly, to walk off the indulgences of yesterday.
We enjoyed an ALDI Christmas dinner which I can thoroughly recommend for taste, quality and price.
The Aldi mince pies came out best in a taste test, above ones from Fortnum and Mason costing five times more!
I hope you all enjoyed a delicious Christmas meal with family or friends.
Our day was made complete by a two hour conference call with Rhiannon and Tom, via ‘Go Meeting’, where we opened our presents. Who’da thought it would be possible for a family to video link between the UK, Switzerland and the Japan?
