Weekend skiing in Verbier

November 24th, 2014

It doesn’t happen often, but on Sunday we drove over to Verbier to go skiing. It’s not that there’s anything against ‘Verbs’, but it’s just along way from Chamonix. One hour of mountain roads.

The gondola at Châble takes you right up through the centre of Verbier and up to the slopes. Concentration on the first turns on piste skis were needed to get back into it all following the ski touring earlier in the week.

Surprisingly, the Lac des Vaux wasn’t frozen and after not too long, the snow started to turn Spring-like. Warm weather’s forecast and not much snow on the horizon either, could lead to a non-skiing weekend as we were due to head over to Italy and ski Courmayeur. Still, we’ve started skiing, which is always good!!
