The end of the season

Comedy MonoskiI was skiing through the tears this week as I realised it was nearly the end of the season and bags should be packed, the apartment cleaned, and the car pointed towards Calais.

And so to this season’s awards.

Most surprising thing this season

The snow. It has been utterly, utterly fabulous. From Week 1 to Week 15 it’s been perfect!

Best ski run in La Plagne

Pierre Blanches. Dappled sunlight, trees, interesting skiing on consistently great snow and it gets you home. What’s not to like?

Best ski run in Les Arcs

Mont Blanc. Fabulous views, sustained, empty and bathed in sunshine. All boxes ticked!

Best ski lift in La Plagne

Funiplagne Grand Rochette. Maximum up for minimum time. And if you are a singleton, you can generally sneak around the queue and jump on as the doors close on a half-empty cabin.

Best ski lift in Les Arcs

Transarc. Groovy free loos at the start and a super quick ride to the heart of the mountains.

Most annoying person of the season

My Roomie. New to snow sports this winter, Roomie skied a blue piste with confidence within 90mins and was off-piste within a week. He does have a background in surfing, inline skates and skateboarding which is almost like cheating really. The annoying bit? He returns each skiing day to report to this confirmed piste skier, the gullies that he’s skied, the off-piste he’s discovered and how many forests he’s skied though. Every. Single. Time.

Champagne Moment of the season

Meeting the two guys on the mono ski above La Plagne. Playing it for laughs they brought a smile to everyone’s face. Book them for Panto someone.

And that’s all he wrote.
