Les Alpages Du Corbier
Travel Blogs from Le Corbier
I'm writing this entry now at 10:30pm because if I don't I never will!! We have been so busy, I don't think we've stopped from the beginning of February, or even before that!! February half term was so busy! It was more crazy than Christmas. I felt like a dish washing machine! Leo and I stayed in the entire week to help Gill cook and I became an expert at baking cakes! I made caramelised ...
... ll be too old
by then. (Nothing but the Olympics can make a 22-26 year old feel ancient.)
Second, I’m still not fully insured by the French government yet, and that
would not have been good were anything to actually happen. Lastly, it’s really
hard to clutch with a broken left leg or switch gears with a broken right arm.
(Yes, I’m still blaming all of my problems on manual transmissions.)
Ètoile in Bonhomme
... was almost nil! We got to an area that had quite a bit of green but they were all slopes that were going sideways down the mountain. It worked well for Laura on skis but did not work well for me to get warmed up on my board. Getting back off the mountain was difficult as most of the mountain is black with some green very high up. So, we had to travel sideways down the mountain on this narrow trail that was way too crowded!
Salut mes chatons,
Chamrousse was day one of our weekend adventure! It started out a bit frustratingly for both of us as the bus we took from Grenoble dropped us off on the side of the mountain that was mostly blacks and reds.
Sidenote here, I should mention that in France (Europe?) mountains are rated by green, blue, red, or black where as in the US it is green, blue or black.
But I digress...
... part, I will limit my descriptions to the two blog posts about each place but I will say that we had a blast and our level improved drastically! The best part is that our level increased together which meant that we were able to stay together and still push each other to the next hardest slope!
Best Valentines weekend ever!
From Grenoble, with love,
