The rest of our 3 days were spent skiing all over the vast 3 valleys ski area which is the largest ski area in the world with over 600km of pistes and then we moved onto Val D’Isere which is one of the most famous ski destinations in the world. This was the part of the trip that I was really excited about as it was going to be the first time that I had skied a new resort for over 7 years. With fresh snow falling again overnight as we headed up the main Gondola I was filled with excitement and couldn’t help myself from starring out the window looking at the runs checking out the off potential off piste routes. When we got to the top we headed off straight down a lovely gentle blue and right away as we turned the corner I spied an untouched powder stash accessible straight from the top of a drag lift so I convinced the group to take a detour on our way over to Tignes so that I could satisfy my craving for few powder turns. I reached the top and stood looking down at over 500 meters of vertical drop where I could ride the whole way down without touching another line took a deep breath and off I went. It was pure joy feeling that floaty sensation in my feet and riding the mountain like a wave. After a quick look back to check out my line I joined up with my group again who had gone down the piste and we continued with our mission to ski to Tignes and back in time to have lunch at the Folie Douche.
For those that like to spend their summers partying Ibiza the Folie Douche is little piece of Ibiza up the mountains with big name DJs and Cabaret acts to entertain the crowds. The partying begins at 2pm and continues until about 5pm it can make for some very interesting riding home for those that may have had one too many. But if you do not fancy a kamikaze drunken run back into town there is the option to come down in the cable car so don’t let that stop you from going wild.
All in we all had a fabulous holiday and every member of the group had managed to do what they wanted to do. The Powder White chalets are lovely, the staff were fantastic, and the food is great I cannot recommend them more highly. The price of a 7 night SkiFari is a very reasonable £549 including the transfer between the resorts.
