It’s a hard life

For the last two days our luck changed around drastically, with the sun breaking through the clouds and fog, giving us two bluebird days in powder… The idillic skiing conditions!


In the quaint little ski resort of Megeve there is hardly anyone else skiing so with the arrival of the sun and half term holiday tourists we were quite surprised at the amount of people skiing! The plan: coffee break at 11.30, ski over lunch time when everyone is eating and basically have the slopes to yourself, lunch at 2pm when everyone’s finished lunch (no queues for tables hehe). This plan worked well for the last two days and we enjoyed the opportunity to tear down the unoccupied slopes. The powder was also home to much amusement, going off the piste into the deep snow and then getting stuck because of the sheer volume of snow on top of our legs!




Over the three days we skiied on three different sections of the two mountains, each providing their own unique slopes and runs. My favourite was the second, probably because it was most sunny that day which always makes skiing better – but also due to the volume of different slopes and their width, a much wider slope is a lot more fun to tear down. The second day the powder was also so much fun to ski through as it was fresh and so very soft.

On our third and last day, we skiied to the highest and furthest point on the mountain then made it our mission to ski back making sure we skiied on ever run in order to tick them off on our piste map!

After heading back to the chalet, we watched the sunset from our balcony (above picture) which turned the mountains purple! A beautiful end to a great mini break skiing.
