What a week !   November 18th, 2007

The snowfall we’ve had in the last week has been reported to be a best start to the winter season for over 30 years. With many resorts opening a few lifts this weekend for people to get their skis out earlier in the year then most can remember.Massive Snowfall on 15th Nov 2007, Chatel

Chatel itself received a staggering 85cm on the top slopes which is more then almost all the other resorts in the French Alps including all the big names further South.

Yesterday I headed to Les Croset one of the 4 ‘Portes du Soleil’ resorts which where open. It was a beautiful sunny day, blue skies with not a cloud in sight and with knee deep soft powder conditions it was a very enjoyable day.

 Looking forward to next weekend when Chatel opens its lifts, with possibly even more snow forecast before that.
