Heavy snow

There's nothing like going to sleep when you know that it has already snowed more than 1/2m.

Zen moment


It's been good remembering my first and only experience in the Alps. But it's not doing any justice to this blog's title...
Time for another location... Baqueira! I know I'm not really changing the "kind" of destination... it just goes to show the snow starvation around here.
Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua domains are all linked, providing you great ski runs, stunning scenery and an affordable (...) stay.

If I had to point out my favorite runs, I'd mention the Teso Dera Mina lift's surrounding area, in Bonaigua.

The best runs are not pictured in these photos... I leave them for you to imagine :)

Ski bus to Megève

Waiting for the ski bus to Megève's nearest lift. This photo reminds me of a still famous Instinct ad, which read: "waiting for waves is ok... most people spend their lives waiting for nothing".

Megève's trademark backgrounds

Whether it's Mont Blanc or the dense pine tree forests, you're sure to find one of these backgrounds while strolling/skiing/boarding/etc in Megève's slopes.
