Friday ! well almost

So, the season is rapidly moving forward, almost at the half way point and the “mid-season” blues, as many seasonaires call it.  The part of the season where tiredness has kicked in, the feeling of being locked in a bubble that you cannot escape from (in this case meribel), the calm before the February Madness of the French, Belgium, Uk, German and in fact every countries  holiday , when to be honest,  the snow,  dare I say has got a bit boring !

So how do you conquer this low ebb, motivate yourself to get through the madness and see in spring and the fun times ahead?  The answer …… get yourself out, enjoy some of what Meribel has to offer over the coming days, weeks, and months.

So what is on this week and will keep you going in the weeks to come?

First up, how about a bit of comedy?  again Taking The Piste have managed to get together another amazing lineup on Thursday 7th Feb 2013

Next week is looking a little grey to say the least, but it is showing signs of snow and it could be chilly! thankfully no rain is showing, as no one like to see rain in the winter, and after last nights down pour with a snow / rain limit of 1700m we certainly don`t want anymore until April !
