... long run all the way back to Tignes and a fab last day of snowboarding.
So for the final night we took it easy and headed back to Alpaca. It's what you expect from a ski lodge, animal print throws, wooden walls and apparently there's a couple of wolfhounds in residence somewhere. Jonas brought his French friend Max who unwittingly provided our entertainment. His English was obviously better than ...
... why, the more I try to avoid trees, the more I head straight for them.

If you haven't been, I strongly recommend making it one of the top places to visit!
