So. We’ve opened. Well. Kind of.
Yup, the lifts are open and the snow is falling. The fact it’s falling at Attelas and not any lower was not ideal, so it was a rather soggy Lac des Vaux opening.
But we can all start with platitudes about a good dense base and cold nights etc…
Still, it was good get up there and there’s a proper fall coming next week so please cross your fingers.
However the highlight of the day was getting back to Verbier via the big new lifts. So new they were still making them when we went down, and let me tell you that getting being casually waved into a lift by a man who seconds earlier appeared to be trying to fit something important-looking to it is not a confidence instilling experience… But Rob was a very, very brave boy.
