Snow, snow, snow …

Winter returned today! After 5 or 6 weeks of spring, the skies have opened up and it is dumping snow! Perfect for ski touring when it all stops …

Looking out over the balcony when we woke this morning!

In the meantime, much stays the same here in France. Curfew remains from 6pm to 6am. The resort stays closed although there do seem to be a few pop up bars opening at the bottom of ski tour routes – a huge bonus! Vaccinations for Covid are rolling very slowly – Astra Zeneca only for ‘young people’ – miraculously, I fall into this category so am hopeful I might get a vaccination in the next 2/3 weeks. Chris is too old to get into this category but too young to get the limited other vaccine supplies so his vaccination is still not in sight.

All my various projects continue … singing in a new choir (just about to record ‘rolling in the deep’); upholstery, working on my french, puzzles, ski touring etc etc. Chris is building space ships, killing baddies and doing some exercise through an adventure game – of course! We are both attending webinars to prepare ourselves for a possible trip around the world … decision time in June when we have a clearer idea as to whether the world will open up to sailors.

Ski touring continues to be a real highlight for me – my latest tour saw me climb up 826m! A great ski down but needed 2 days of rest to recover! I tour with lovely neighbours/ex-neighbours and the Women’s Mountain Club – the ski guides are fabulous and I have loved being part of their world. I have just committed to a 2 day tour, staying in a refuge on a glacier over night … SO exciting!
