We set off from Cumbria on the Friday after school finished filled with excitement! It was a quick stop over at Marine Parade in Dover before catching the ferry to Dunkerque. The morning ferry was very pleasant and it was soon time to get behind the wheel of the motorhome and hit the peage. Ten hours later we arrived at Les Marmottes campsite in Essert Romand. Maxime, the campsite owner had prepared the pitch expertedly.
Sunday morning it was over to the bus stop. It is so convenient to walk across the road to the bus stop and 1 euro later you are standing in the middle of Morzine with kilometeres of ski runs to choose from. First day it is always a warm up on Le Pleney side.
The next day saw our heaviest snow fall! It always amazes us how the buses run when the roads are so white. An excellent day on the powder including some scary skiing on the Chamoissier was topped off by having to dig our way to the door of the motorhome!

It was a couple more days of excellent skiing. A curry with Carl and Sian on the last night set us up for the journey home. Both sad to leave but in need of a rest after a full on weeks skiing!
