Don't forget your thermals !!


Snow forecast pretty much all the time you are in Tignes, from about the barage and higher.

Highest temperature forecast up on the glacier is -14C

It was warmer in January


Hi Andy,

I've been keeping an eye on the weather forecast for Tignes as well - my husband hates the cold and the snow and I'd confidently told him there wouldn't be any at resort level at this time of year

I just hope we can see where we're going, in all that snow


oops

Could be first and last?
Tricky !!

My thoughts are that we would continue to go to the alps, and while my frau is skiing, I would just spend all day painting ~ instead of managing with some time at the end of the ski day, making it difficult to finish a painting.
Apart from that, I would spend the time just meeting and talking with locals at whichever village we would be in.


Here's some art you can do on the snow Dave

Wow,that is amazing! I definitely would not use my energy bypassing the slopes! In my more vain moments, I get to think that my pictures will still be on skiers walls in 100 years. That lads art could be gone by a week on Tuesday!

1. Out of the 3 of us, only I had a valid passport - my daughter's was nicked and my husband's was out of date. But now all 3 of us have valid passports

2. All our EHIC cards (for free hospital medical care in France) were out of date. We've now got 2 of the new ones - still waiting for the third one.



Why do people allow this to happen, especially regular(ish) travellers???

Tony,
I know the answer to this one - 'To err is human' (Alexander Pope).

However, the last EHIC arrived in the post today

But we have a new problem - number 4 I believe - my daughter has just confessed that she left all her ski stuff at uni

Fortunately there is a very simple solution to this - she can wear my old spare stuff

I am NOT going to go out and buy her any new ski gear

Ally - you are too soft on her.

Taking responsibility is a clear necessity for the burdgeoning adult and you should have pointed to the bike and said "sort it".


Tough luv is a good thing.

For next week, tough luv to MrG - "I don't control the weather"

I am packing now, ready to go off for my 3 days ski-ing in Tignes. There seems to be plenty of snow

So - I've got no more sleeps before I leave home, but one more sleep in the U.K. before I go to France, and 2 sleeps before I actually ski.
