Skiing in Courmayeur on a snowy weekend

December 18th, 2012

It just keeps dumping snow with another 10cms outside this morning in Chamonix. To be honest, I’m getting bored (correction – I’m already bored) of snow clearing. Still, if snow’s what we need… 😉

Saturday was a good day to be in Courmayeur. A quick nip through the tunnel for better snow is super easy with the Val Veny cable car only 3 minutes from the Italian entrance. 20 minutes later we were skiing groomed pistes with 25cms of fresh snow. This was Chris’s first ski of the season so he was over the moon with the conditions – fresh snow, if a little bit heavy.
After lunch, we lapped the black behind the Baby Bowl and then the trees down to Zerotta. Check out the number of lifts and runs open in Courmayeur at the moment.
K2 Coombacks performed well, they’re proving to be a good choice. Having spent three years on full rockers, it’s nice to feel an improvement on the piste.
