snow time

February 4, 2008 No Comments

I mentioned the girls trip to the mountains, well, its all booked, flights and accommodation. We’re off to Avoriaz in March, staying at the aptly named Rude Chalets in their R1 apartment – how cute – last year Liz, Sam and I headed out to Geilo, in Norway to stay at our Norwegian friend’s mountain ‘hut’. The snow was divine, the hut amazing (and more chalet than hut – it had a sauna!) and Norway was such a great country to see, but the price of beer and the steep hike back up to the hut was too much for us! I just wish Kristin could join us this year!

So this year, we have gone ‘ski-in ski-out’. Well, technically its ‘board-in, board out’ but….I can’t wait to get on the snow again. And I think the other girls are looking forwards to a little après action! They have just opened the Burton Stash park over there too, and there are some amazing parks to be seen! No doubt it means bruising to come!

We also needed somewhere with a little bit of an apres scene; after Norway’s £10 a pint affair, hopefully france will be a little bit more affordable, even if it is cheap vodka from the supermarche!
and i have plans for some great holga shots. ordered some Rollei Retro 100, to get some super fine landscapes!

soooooo excited! Can you tell?
oooh, and if anyone has any inside tips of bars, hills, chairs to ride, anything about the area, let me know!
