Sadly, here in Valloire there has been little snow of recent.  Pretty much the town is clear and the slopes are getting a bit icy and are very hard and packed snow. The forecasters keep getting it wrong too – WE WANT MORE SNOW!  On the bright side, our French […]

Our week 4 – 6 diary has been uploaded to http://www.doyourdream.co.uk/trip-reviews-and-details/trip-08-snowboarding-sahara/weeks-4-5-and-6-valloire/ – not that interesting I am afraid as we’re not doing much campervanning – just boarding! First real damage today 🙁  Ripped my trouses – think it is the impact shorts body armour that caused the damage.  Bugger.

What a naff day here :(

Haoppy new year everyone. After a cock up meaning we didn’t have a meal out last night, we did still see the fireworks over the slopes and some fun at the Snow Ball.  Lots of french kids throwing fireworks at each other.  Reminds me of an old enterprise I had […]

Happy new year from Valloire!
