This year, we could not have been luckier with our skiing holidays, we had blue skies, sunshine and fabulous powdery snow for almost our entire stay. It was total bliss.
In the mornings, DS had his skiing lessons, and DH & I hit the pistes together, occasionally stopping for a coffee or vin chaud , enjoying being just the two of us for a few hours. In the afternoons we'd all ski together, with DS of course leading, at breakneck speed. The older he gets, the more sportif our holidays seem to become ;-)
On most days, we met up with DS at the L'Arpette restaurant for our lunch..
having build up a considerate appetite all morning :-)
Over the last summer, the charming owner of the Arpette has redecorated her Chalet, using all natural materials in white, cream and light grey/brown. Her great taste and fantastic eye for detail produced a fabulous end result, and a beautifully light, cosy and chic atmosphere.

DS completed successfully his ski course, proudly gaining his bronze star. He is already looking forward to the Étoile d'or course next year!
