Xmas ski

It's traditional for me to go for a ski at Guzet on xmas day. Yesterday was rainy and warm and so far this winter has been poor for snow in the was looking doubtful. Overnight a cold front pushed through and we had a little snow (5-10cm) on the mountains. Guzet managed to open its main piste and one lift but we decided to head for Ax-les-Thermes which had more snow. The skiing wasn't bad in fact and in the afternoon we got a few views above the clouds.

C'est une tradition de faire de ski à Guzet à Nöel. Hier etait pluvieux et cette année etait pauvre pour la neige ici...c'etait incertain. Dans la nuit un perturbation est arrivé avec 5-10cm de neige aux montagnes. Guzet a reussi de ouvrir une piste mais Ax-les-Thermes a eu plus de neige. Un jour de ski pas mal et à l'après-midi un belle vue au dessus les nuages.

Hi Lee,
Pleased you got out on Christmas day. Merry Christmas to you. We went up the hill for lunch in blizzard conditions where you could not see from one marker to the next. One run to the cabin, 2 hour lunch and one run down again.
Now it is driving rain in town and up to about 1800m. Suposed to put down 40-60cm at 2000m but avalanche danger going up to 5/5.
Have a great new year!!!
