What A Start!!!

We were extremely lucky today to have clear blue skies to kick off the season. With the best early-season snow cover that we’ve had for quite some time it was wonderful to have some options as most seasons we are confined to the Pisaillas Glacier at the Fornet. I was surprised at how many people […]

An Epic Drive!!!

I had a fantastic door-to-door journey today in just under 12-hours and it was one of the easiest trips I’ve had yet. I tuned in to Doctor Karl en-route to the tunnel but he has either retired or was ill and the regular host Rod had replaced him with an Australian woman named Bianca. She […]

Fingers crossed!!!

I’ve just finished packing the car and am ready to leave tomorrow morning at 3:30! I’m hoping for an easy journey as the webcams and Facebook posts are showing an incredible amount of snow falling out of the sky. I had my snow tyres put on yesterday and fingers crossed that I won’t need chains. […]

Karen and Andreas!!!

The opening weekend is just about here and conditions look fabulous to kick-off another fantastic season of skiing and all-round fun! The webcams show an excellent early-season snow cover and we should be able to get off-piste properly right from the opening. (None of that warming up on piste business!) Karen and Andreas will be […]

Remembrance Day!!!

Katie and I went to the Brookwood Military Cemetery for our annual Remembrance Day Service. We go every year as it is an incredibly moving place and there is always a service on the Sunday. The girls used to visit Brookwood with their Grandpa (my Dad) when they were little and since my Dad died […]

The second apartment is 80 sq. metres, which is jolly big by Val d’Isere standards, and it’s going for 32,000 Euros. If you are interested in a nice apartment for the […]

Junior Club Champs!!!

Millie had a good day in the Junior Club Championship’s today as she came third gross and second nett and picked up a nice little trophy. (See photos) She’ll get a cut from 12.2 to 11.8 and has had a much more successful golf season than her good old Dad!!! Go Millie!!! Keep those bookings […]

Captains Drive In !!!

We had a great day at the golf club yesterday as it was the annual Captains Drive In where all this past year’s Captains putt out and the new Captains for the upcoming year drive in. The Drive In is a little nerve wracking as the Captains tee-off in front of at least one hundred […]

Channel Tunnel Booked!!!

Winter must be approaching as I booked my crossing on the Channel Tunnel this afternoon thinking I’d get in early before all the Brexit rubbish kicks in. It seems to be slightly cheaper than last year but I have booked earlier. I’m playing loads of golf at the moment and really enjoying it as I’ve […]
