Here we have it then after all the excitement and anticipation, it’s great to finally meet all 38 of the 2019 crew! After a busy day on Sunday welcoming arrivals at the airport, and in resort, everyone settled in quickly. Once all of the SnowSkoolers arrived we headed to the local bar (the Tsaretta) for a beer so everyone could meet one another.
Monday, we jumped straight in! After the welcome chat some headed out for a group ski while the others headed up to the Boot-Lab to get kitted out with new gear! In the afternoon everyone met their instructors and headed out to start their training and the conditions were just great for the first day, sunshine!!
We managed to get together some of the group and headed up to the ice hockey on Tuesday night to watch local teams Meribel v Courchevel!
Its been bright blue skies across the Three Valleys and the blue bird days have been amazing - but a little on the chilly side! Still, Tuesday evening brought some much-wanted snow that we’ve been waiting for and more forecast for Sunday.
Thursday: a big group of us headed to a Comedy night called ‘taking the piste’ at Meribar, it was a great night and had us all laughing!
After a great week learning lots of new tips in their lessons, most people headed up the hill early on Saturday to put it into practice and enjoyed their day in the beautiful sunshine shredding all day and to finish off a great first week at ‘La Folie Douce’ - with beers into the late evening.
Sunday we all woke up and the Snow Gods gave us what we wanted, and it didn’t stop coming. What a day it was with fresh pow all day. Next week looks set to be great with most planning an early rise to get those first fresh tracks!
Smiles all round with everyone forming great friendships already and we can’t wait for what next week brings….
