Christmas in Chamonix

Ok, maybe a little dated.  But I have been busy with all sorts of things.

Anyway, my sister Kathleen has moved to Chamonix and whilst Andy her other half was there over Christmas, Nik and I went over there to visit them and spend Christmas with them and spend a few days skiing.

Because time was short we kept it simple but visited a few different spots to ski, Les Houches a couple of times, Le Brevent and Courmayeur.  The later being my favorite as there was more powder and I wanted to test my new fat powder skis as well.

Christmas day was an relaxed affair, with some skiing in the morning, a slight delay to lunch, so some skiing in the afternoon and then a late lunch early dinner that was just great.  It was a very nice way tp spend Christmas day.

Make that Christmas dinner, it was great.

W did some more skiing over the next couple of days before Nik and I had to head home.  It was great to see Kath and Andy, and see how excited they both are about their new life.
