Springtime skiing

Two weeks ago – time is moving fast these days – I had the opportunity to go to Chamonix – Mont Blanc:

very famous and called the “capital” of alpinism and winter sports …

As we had the Mont Blanc Unlimited-Card we went to every skiing area (Brévent – Flégère, Les Houches, Les grands Montets, La Balme / Vallorcine and Courmayeur) and tried out the easy and the black pistes!

It was also sometimes scary, at least for me, as we went to the Aiguille du MIdi at 3800 m and there you see 1000 m down into nothing …

It is a worthwhile experience to visit the area and I liked most the afternoon at La mer de glace when the sun didn’t shine at the glacier anymore and it started to “talk”, making constantly cracking noises and sounds!

Last week-end I went skiing, finally. As the weather up on top of the Jura Francais was fine and new snow there, I loved it!
It was a dream come true …
And not to crowdy as I arrived while most people had lunch.
Enjoy the view towards the Alps:
