Chamonix, a quaint little mountain town
with big surface lifts,
lots of trams,
and this guy.
Cast of Characters:
The fiancee, yours truly, the sister, the brother in-law
dad (rocking the clear goggles on a sunny day)
and mom came too... but she doesn't ski, so she won't be featured here.
Each morning we would leave our hotel
head to the breakfast spot and formulate a plan for the day
then walk across the street and wait for the bus to take us to the lifts.
It didn't snow for about a week before our trip, so the first couple of days were mostly spent on the groomers.
I ventured off the trails into the ungroomed for a bit
the snow was mostly sun-baked crud,
but still plenty of fun
especially when it got steep!
And then finally, on our fourth day out of five,
There were lots of small features in the terrain that held fresh turns throughout the day
some right under the lifts!
Everyone got in on the action
my sister and brother in-law live in Kentucky, so this was a nice surprise for them!
Even dad ventured "off-piste" for a few turns in the new snow
it was a day to remember!
Our final day was spent cruising in the sun,
enjoying the snow bar,
and watching all the crazy locals.
No doubt this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been!
*EDIT--- this TR needs BRO stoke, I skied my 183's the whole week and couldn't have been happier!
