Skiing ~ Haute Savoie

This year we went skiing in the Haute Savoie part of the French alps. We had a week full of sunshine, blue skies and fabulous snow.. it was blissful.

DAY ONE
Early morning view from our balcony

Over night beautiful icicles form. By midday they are all melted away..

A stroll through the village..


..where we bought some local delicacies to take back home


DAY TWO

Getting ready for the slopes..

.. wearing my Ex-libris Cashmere GM






















DAY FOUR
After a long morning's skiing we were heading towards one of my favorite cafés for lunch.

love the decoration..

the stag's head is not real, it's just a cuddly toy!

wearing Quadrige

Who can resist a glass of 'vin chaud'?

it was exactly the right thing to have and was followed by a well deserved lunch.


DAY SIX
The snow was fantastic, and after a few good runs it was time to head to a café for a little break..

this one has spectacular views ...

one can watch the bubble lift going up to the Glacier..

.. relax in a deck chair (wearing La danse du cheval Marvari)

and marvel at the panoramic view of the Mont Blanc


DAY EIGHT
Time to say good-bye. We had such a wonderful time.
