This weekend I took the Friday coach to Brides, chauffered by Nick and Simon two of our regular drivers. Not only do they really look after you, serving beer, wine, soft drinks etc, but they've even made there own slide shows of a weekends skiing. It really sets the tone and builds the excitement. Then just before we picked up Tiff (Tiffany our rep that is, not the famed racing driver and presenter of 5th Gear) they went around taking bookings for the Apres Ski coach from Meribel on Sunday night.

We jumped off the coach and were in and out of the hotel in a flash, then off up the mountain! Wow was it sunny! The SPF50 was seeing heavy use, the snow is still great although it was a little soft after an afternoon baking. We had a great ski around Meribel with a long lunch in L'Adret Telebar where we had their famous veal in creme... then back to the Verseau to watch the Rugby followed by dinner and a glass or three of wine.

Sunday was bright with cloud and snow showers, the colder temperature meant the pistes were perfect for blasting around. We covered all the Courchevel areas from Les Praz 1300 to the famous Grand Couloir, the steepest black run in Europe which had turned into a bump fest ! If you are sensing a theme, we had a gourmet lunch at La Bergerie, with prices to match. Of course we went to the Rond Point to dance in our ski boots to the live music before a swift drink in Jack's bar and on to the late bus back down.

Monday it snowed properly and whilst my friends had great fun in the fresh snow and another great lunch (a very long one I believe), I spent the day making plans for the complete refitting of all the Versaeu bedrooms for next season !

Back at my desk for 930 shaved, showered and changed :-)
