Got back from my annual skiing escape to the Alps late on Saturday night; a thoroughly good time had by all and no lasting injuries (which is always a bonus!). A couple of us try to get away for a few days every year and this year we went to a place called "St. Gervais-les-bains" which is in France and sits in the shadow of Mt. Blanc, the tallest mountain in the Alps and which is visible in the background of this photo (I'm the one on the right). We had one bad weather day (snow & low cloud) and two splendid weather days and the ski areas we visited (Les Contamines, Megeve and Combloux) weren't too busy either, all in all a successful trip. I must commend Easy-jet for a couple of seamless flights; they delivered us into Geneva ahead of schedule on Wednesday when we arrived and then on Saturday we were still skiing as late as 5:30pm as the last lift shut, got changed in the ski-lift car park and blasted back to Geneva on the motorway; flight left bang-on time and got us back to Gatwick early at 9:50pm - tucked up in bed by 11 - can't argue with that!
