A little snow goes a long way


Hubby's just got back from a week's skiing in Les 3 Vallées area in France. He went with his sister and brother-in-law as I'm not too keen on skiing. I like mountains and I love snow, but I'd rather spend my holidays lounging in the sunshine than freezing cold on the slopes. Every time he goes away I think I might go with him this once, but never have so far. Having seen his photos from this year's trip to Méribel, I'm glad I didn't as there was more cloud than snow around. I don't feel anywhere near as jealous as I feel when he shows me photos of bright blue skies and thick white snow.


Still, a little snow obviously goes a long way, as they managed to ski every day they were there. The view from the room looks OK too.


Maybe next year...

As a Norwegian, I would have loved to be there you know. Too little snow in Oslo, Norway this winter :-(

Oh Wow! It is beautiful Tinsie.

It is beautiful, but I'm with you. Vacations need sun and sand.

So it seems snow is invading your life... My daughter was in Switzerland for skiing, but got some rain. Not a great treat... but your pictures are wonderful!
Your Wednesday pictures seems to have been taken in Athens... Incredible!
Have a great Spring week!

@ Cheryl & Shionge: Some of the photos from last year's ski trip were truly stunning, all blue skies and thick snow, but I guess these aren't bad either ;-)

@ Rennyba: Amazing that there's less snow in Oslo than the south of France!

@ Karen: Finally, someone who understands how I feel :-)

@ GMG: Yeah, hubby had some rain too.

Last week's snowy pictures were indeed taken in Athens - more snow than Méribel, would you believe it!

I'm going in 7 days and I can't wait. I haven't been for 2 years :( There's nothing quite like the feeling of gracefully flying down the mountain, the sun is on your face and the air is fresh and crisp - bliss :D

Where are you going Loops? Hopefully not the south of France, although I hear they had a little more snow last week.

The sun-on-your-face feeling is lovely, but I prefer it when my face is lathered in sunscreen, I'm wearing a hat and sunglasses and the air is hot and still. Mmmmmm you got me thinking of summer now!
