It does what it says, the rooms are spacious and so are the beds, comfy mattresses and it's all clean, the bathroom is basic but again it's all clean. Enough choice at breakfast and the breakfast room is lovely and big and full of natural light with a great view of the mountains. There is also a cozy reading room to meet and discuss plans for the day ahead!

After the first run, ...

While world cup ski events were being cancelled all around us, we tried to make the best of it by realizing that at least we were in the mountains, which were truly awe-inspiring. And then it happened... our Chirstmas miracle. It snowed and snowed and snowed. It ...
... to ski. As in, actually ski.
Thankgod for the human behind hey?
After an hour of human bobsledding (both deliberate and accidental), El stacking it numerous times and random acts of kindness whereby people stopped and offered to ski with my ski's down the mountain (in which I politely accepted), we made it...and took the next two days off skiing.
A white 'orphan' Christmas in the French Alps? Lived the dream!
