Morillon - Grand Massif

The snow seems to be arriving later and later in the Alps and Pyrenees, so much so that our holiday is getting later each year too, but with a big dump over the weekend of the 15th Jan, we grabbed a late booking, a lovely apartment just a few hundred meters from the ski lift. We loved that the sun shone everyday, but this takes a toll on the pistes and even with all the snow they’d had over that weekend more is needed, especially with the French half term weeks looming. Stones and grass were starting to come through in places which isn’t good for the bottom of your skis, but you just need to keep your wits about you and steer round the obstacles. We are always amazed by the stunning scenery so here’s a few more pics of the beautiful mountains and some of us.

  1. It all looks wonderful and we are very jealous! There's nothing better than sunshine by day and snow by night. It doesn't often happen that way, but one can but dream. I like your idea of going for a late booking and out of term time it's possible. xx

    1. We've been in Feb half term only once and that was also the last time, it was soooo busy. The joy of living here is that you can leave it to the last minute.

  2. We can see the Pyrenees when they are covered in snow, but this year we can see that there has not been as much, which is good for us because it means that the snow melt will not fill the river up so much. A snow melt + avalanches on the mountains + rain = us getting flooded! Glad you enjoyed your skiing though.

    1. What an amazing view you must have Vera but I can understand that flooding is not what you need. Have you been skiing yet as you're so close?
