Chatel 2018

12th February 2018, 20 photos.

Midterm skiing in Chatel/Portes du Soleil. Horrendous blizzards to start with followed by two and a half days of sunny weather and huge quantities of perfect snow. James is skiing well and it's "proper" skiing for me now, just to keep up!

The unimaginitive shot everyone takes on holiday - but at least this has nice colours


Chairlift in a blizzard, tunring us into snowmen


Emerging from the blizzards and surfing the knee deep powder they have left behind


Picture postcard perfect


Powdery pistes


Spraying snow in the sun


Much happier in the sunshine than in the bizzard


Heading home on day two


A perfect setting for the first run of the morning.


Our favourite blue

Full whack down a Swiss black at Les Crosets


The Swiss Wall. Gulp!

Blitzing the Wall


Getting his bearings

Cruising home through the frozen, snowy trees
