Grand Motte and other big things

Yesterday morning, after a ridiculously early taxi, followed by a ridiculously early flight we made it to Geneva. Things were made easier by the BMI flight manager who, despite looking like Ron Walker, offered us a £10 upgrade and 'overlooked' our excessively heavy board bags. A painful 3.5 hour bus trip with 6 kids lacking any discipline and 4 parents lacking even more made the transfer to Val seem like forever but we had a quick look around, ate some over-priced food and set up our equipment for skiing.

Today we rolled out for a look around and got across to Tignes within a few hours. There were no big stacks but we were all quite conservative due to feeling out of practise but it didn't take long to get back into the rhythm so the rest of the week should be good.

Unfortunately there's not much to tell but we're building up a big collection of photos and we're expecting snow tonight...
