Well, it's been a crazy few days in Les Arcs! The end of last week saw a snowstorm which has deposited more white stuff in a few days than we had all of last season. This is a great start but has brought with it a fair amount of chaos as well. The roads up to the higher resorts have been closed at times for avalanche blasting and high winds and there have been a few accidents too.
