It’s quite sickening to hand over the €630 at the start of the winter season for your full area Portes du Soleil lift pass. But at the time, when asked if I wanted the ‘extra area passes’ for just an extra €2, I was too shocked to say no.

Many of the world’s lower altitude ski areas have closed a week or two early as record-breaking warm temperatures in March in large parts of Europe and North America – approaching the high 80s Farenheit/20s Celcius has led to melt down on their slopes.  At the same time the summer-like weather has meant many people have turned early to biking and golf.

Which is better, France or Austria? Sure, variety is the spice of life, but mostly because you can use it to inspire vigorous arguments over strongly held preferences.

The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hooray! It's a wonderfully balmy 10'C in the village,  birds are singing, windows are flung wide and every square inch of pavement is taken up with bar and cafe tables and chairs. Moreover, everyone is walking around with a dopey but contented grin on their face. Spring is in the air and it (almost) feels like a holiday!
