Riding out the storm

Like all skiers, our pulses quicken when the snow begins to fall, but you can have too much of a good thing. Dont believe me? Try skiing in near-blizzard conditions, when you can’t read the surface of the piste you’re negotiating, thick mists have blotted out even long-familiar features and the wind is strengthening by the minute. When you get assailed by all three, then it’’s time to do the unthinkable and head back down the mountain to sit out the storm.

Vaujany: the model French ski resort?

Why haven’t we been here before...?” I have a feeling we won’t be the only ones asking themselves just that question as they begin to look around and get their bearings in this relatively little-known corner of the French Alps. It also occurs to me that if any ski resort Directors out there are searching for inspiration as to how best to create a great first impression, they could do a lot worse than look right here.
