19 Dec Dumped on in Courchevel and St Anton!
Reminiscent of my first season in Courchevel (’98/99) …. the snow just keeps falling. We’ve had more snow in Courchevel this season than we had during the whole of last season. It’s fairly epic (unless you are responsible for chalet snow clearing!). The balcony at the Chalet Maisonnee is a distant memory. When we find it, we promise to clear off the snow.
Today is supposed to be World Cup Skiing in Courchevel – let’s hope the army of ESF instructors can keep the snow off the course so the race can go ahead.
I can also second that for St Anton and the Arlberg region. More snow already in the last 10 days then there was in the whole of last season! Also some of the best powder skiing I have done in the 12 yrs of being in the Arlberg. As Richard mentioned, snow clearing isn’t the most fun job in the world, but after 2.5hrs shovelling and clearing, we have now managed to clear a view out of the dining room windows of the Villa Montfort!
Much more snow forecast in the coming days, perfect for our Christmas and New Year guests!
