Boarding in Les Coches - France

Boarding Les Coches France 08

Just got back from the slopes of La Plagne in the French alps and Phoebe’s first ski holiday. We took the Eurostar night train to Bourg St Maurice and enabled us to hit the slopes on the Saturday morning. We stayed in a Chalet orgainized by Mountainsun Ltd which included Becks and Roger our hosts for the week. Roger’s cooking was excellent and made all the difference after a hard days sliding down perfectly good slopes……or perhaps that was the lunch time beer…. 🙂

The snow was ok and we didn’t get any fresh snow until later in the week but only at high altitude so it made the lower slopes icy first thing and slushy in the afternoon. Still my boarding is slowly making progress in switch but I’ll have further practice when I return to boarding in Itay in a couple of weeks. 🙂 I think Phoebe could have enjoyed it more if the snow had been tip top and she’d had some beginner skiers to hang with. I hope we can hit some real snow slopes next year in Canada along with some skier buddies for her to play with.

Anyway, it was nice to get away from the office and play in the snow…… 🙂
