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
