Ski week

Been at Meribel in France all week with some past workmates skiing.
Great company, great food, some good and not so good skiing, some good and not so good weather but altogether a fabulous week.
Loads of runs at The Three Valleys Resort, we were out all day and didn't cover any run twice, we did that all week.
Day1 was spent finding the ski legs, taking it easy with Stuart, Marianne, and Eddy in the Meribel valley.
Day2 we toured the slopes over to the east of Coursevel to a long easy run called Grand Bosses, then some runs below Bell Air restaurant and had an expensive but delicious lunch at the restaurant.
Day3 Eddy and I went over to Val Thorens, but it was a bit of a ski lift tour with little in the way of good skiing. The way back was nice though and we finished the day on some nice slopes.
Day4 The clouds were down so we skied low across to Coursevel and down toward La Tania, the snow was getting a bit thin and icy down that way so we only went half way to the town. We discovered a lovely run down Loze to Coursevel, no sign of any ice at all, beautiful.
Day5 Was grey with low cloud and snow, Hugh, Ian and I managed to have a great day pottering about on the lower runs, taking a tour around Meribel valley.
Day 6 Absolutely fabulous, 5 inches of new snow and a lovely sunny day, Eddy and I went a tour up to Mount Vallon but we managed to loose each other, Eddy down one hill me down another, I spent the rest of the day touring the intermediate runs on the west of the valley, plus a little diversion down to Les Menures, a lot of miles but it was the last day so I wanted to get in as much as I could safely manage.
It was a great little holiday, all the same its nice to be back, I've missed getting out on the bike so I'll be back out pedaling very soon...tomorrow PM most likely.
