Val d'Isere, 25 October 2016

25 October


The ladies' Giant Slalom on the glacier in Sölden at the weekend was won by Swiss racer Lara Gut (pronounced 'goot', of course, meaning good, rather than 'gut' as in intestine), while Alexis Pinturault of France won the men's GS. There's one more race in Europe, above the Arctic Circle in Finland, then the serious stuff begins in Val d'Isère on 10 December. And not on a glacier: the men ski the Face de Bellevarde into the village and the ladies come down the OK into the garden of our chalets des Neiges, des Pentes and des Pistes.

Will there be enough snow? It has more often been cancelled for too much snow than for too little...
