Season Opener 2011

In the weeks before the 2011 Season Opener we were nervously watching the weather forecast and webcams as the snow was late arriving. Very late, in fact! But we had faith, and that was repaid many times over. Just before we arrived in resort it started to snow, and didn’t really stop until nearly Christmas! We had a couple of days of sunny weather and lovely piste conditions, but the rest of the week the snow fell and we skied some fabulous powder-on-piste, some pretty challenging powder-on-piste and one very damp day when it was rain rather than snow. All in all it was a wonderful start to the season!
