This week has pretty much seen perfect mid-winter skiing & riding conditions; tons of fresh snow lying around everywhere and beautiful blue skies overhead. We took a walk up to Lognan, the Les Grands Montets midstation, to see how much snow had fallen, and were quickly up to our knees! Fortunately we came across a friendly beagle halfway through the hike who was more than happy to show us the way. Having to call its owner later that afternoon and explain how we had accidentally taken her dog on an epic, marathon hike was slightly more awkward!
