In January before a French ski conference a group of us went to two new areas for me: Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes near the fabled La Grave. Both are very high so have great snow guarantees. Alpe d’Huez is more modern whereas Les Deux Alpes has evolved from an old farming hamlet to a cozy ski village.
In March before another conference in Cortina, as mentioned, I went to and discovered San Cassiano. After Cortina, it was to St. Moritz, my first Alpine resort a few decades ago. I took the UNESCO rated Bernina Express train just as late afternoon became early evening with the sun glinting across snow covered peaks. Next? A ‘Trip with Chips’ is in the offing ~ want to come along?
Yes, this is such a tough business. Skiing new resorts, skiing old favorites. Meeting new people, spending time with those who are now dear friends. All so very difficult! Seriously though, all’s really done for you so that with my first-hand knowledge and personal contacts, I can recommend, or not, your next alpine ski adventure.
So, keep those emails and calls coming, and many thanks for being part of the fun!
