skiing at méribel 2003
After the success of last year's Trois-Valleés trip Chris Richards organised a repeat visit to this wonderful region. For our friends from the USA who might never have skied in Europe, perhaps a word of explanation. The three valleys area is a huge area of interconnected lifts. It depends how you count the villages - but there are some 8 or so spread over the area. It is quite possible to ski all day - and probably for several days - without repeating a run or a lift.
The snow may not be as predictable as in the US or Canada, and the French style of accommodation is in general smaller and more basic. However we were treated to excellent weather, with some fresh snow in the week, and superb cooking from Paul and Erin, our chalet staff. What more could you want?
Here is a selection of the photos I took, and you can click on each one to see a larger version.
We had a great time in good company - so thanks to everyone for such an enjoyable time. Special thanks to Chris for organising it all. Time to put the skis away for the year now and start to dream of next season...
