Still great conditions across all resorts.  The snow is that good that we are almost full in Brides for 16th April and over half full for Chamonix on 24th April.    

There's still great snow coverage and although it's been warm and sunny, temperatures are now falling again.

Ski Weekends is snow joke.

Four friends and I had booked a coach weekend to the Three Valleys. For most of us this was our first time skiing / boarding and we couldn't wait for the adventure to begin.... we'd even been to the local plastic slope to practise our skills the week before.

We arrived early at the Club Hotel in Brides.  After a quick refuel (hearty breakfast), we got `kitted up' with our boots and boards by the Ski Weekends team. We had managed to get a substantial amount of sleep on the coach which exceeded our expectations. By ten o clock, we'd taken the minbus to the gondola and were on our way up to the mountains! The ride from Brides to Meribel takes no time at all, through dramatic mountain scenery.

The weather was superb, the clear blue sky and bright sunshine making for a perfect view across the horizon. As beginners we headed for the green slope, called the AltiPort run. This was a long and gradual slope which allowed us to find our feet (bums, heads, elbows...). During the afternoon we stopped for a snack in a mountain cafe surrounded by spectacular views. With a full day's skiing under our belt we all came away feeling confident about the two days ahead.

Back at the hotel we were greeted by a much welcomed three course meal, then spent the evening in the cosy hotel bar ready for another full day's skiing.  The next day brought more sunshine!  Everyone had grasped the basics and as quick as we were coming down the slopes, we could not wait to catch the chair-lift back up and do it all over again! By the end of the day the first-time boarders amongst us were nicely linking our turns.  We were all amazed how much we'd advanced !

Our last day in the snow saw us take to the higher slopes. We took a chairlift up to the top  and skied a long blue slope back down. At the highest point we were standing above the clouds and with the crystal clear blue sky we could see for miles. This was a highlight for all of us and marked how much we had achieved in the three days!

We slept like logs on the return coach and our arrival at Maidstone Services by 7.00am meant I was back at my desk by 9.00 still dreaming of the mountains. A fantastic weekend from beginning to end, thank you Ski Weekends! I am already booking my next one for the last weekend of the season !!!
