Am in Les Gets today hoping to plent some tulips and alliums in the garden for Spring 2012, but the ground is frozen, too late! Snow is too arrive on Thursday so last chance to rake up the leaves and check that Chalet Perdu is ready for the ski season. In 24 hours the hot tub will be ready, cannot wait, its a cold dash from the chalet but what a feeling, no one around, just mountains and steam. The ski lifts open on Saturday December17th for Xmas, what a change. Today the village is empty, the occasional car going through but on that Saturday the village will come alive. Instead of looking across at an empty mountain, I will watch the first skiers flying past. Cannot wait for a family Xmas, turkey in the oven and then up Mont Chery for a hot chocolate New decorations are too hard to resist and every year I succumb to the romance of Xmas. The excitement is building, snow, Xmas trees, sleigh bells on the balcony door and lots of skiing
The Mazot, my little lodge at Chalet Perdu is booking quickly, just 3 nights on Dec 27th left. The champagne arrives on December 12th ready for plunging into the snow.
