The weather has been very cold for much of the season, so the question as to how many layers to wear has been easily answered; as many as possible whilst still being able to move.
Today, it was warm in the village even early on. The spring flowers are in full bloom and chalet owners are making their gardens ready for the summer. Surely, therefore, a couple of layers would suffice. On the mountain, despite the glorious blue skies, a chilly wind blew yet again. That extra layer, almost left at home, was essential.
The skiing remains excellent, if south facing slopes are avoided. It remains quiet; the cable car was full at 9.30am, but that was the only crowd. The day brought 10,111 vertical metres in 21 lift rides and 58 kilometres travelled.
