Back from Meribel

Just got back from a week’s skiing in and around Meribel. Great snow, great company, a good time was had by all.

Just holiday snaps….

We stayed in the Indiana Lodge and travelled with VIP. Thanks to Eli and Al, our chalet hosts, for excellent service, great food and interesting puzzles over dinner.

We had a couple of days of snowy weather at the start of the week and then mainly clear days. Excellent snow cover (probably the best snow I’ve ever skiied in Meribel), we managed to get down to Courchevel 1550, Meribel Village, La Tania and over to Val Thorens and the snow was wonderful. We also skiied down to St Martin but the snow down on the lower blue was a bit crunchy and artificial feeling…

Powder and fresh stuff on the way down to Courcheval 1550.

My only disapointment was that I didn’t ski the Meribel Couloir this year, the snow looked good but on the day I thought about it the couloir’s were roped off and I’m not one for crossing warning lines…

Sunshine and high winds as we went to Val Thorens and over to Orelle. Unfortunately Bouchet was closed so we didn’t manage to get to the top of the peak we were hoping to reach…

Take the last lift up, sit and wait and things get quiet pretty quickly.
