Single mum goes skiing

With her kids I might add. Too simple otherwise!

On the spur of the moment I booked a room and went straight to Val Louron after school on Tuesday. Wednesday there is no school, so we had one day for skiing. The alarm clock went off at 8 AM and 10 AM sharp we were ready to start (get dressed, have breakfast, pay the room, buy tickets for the lifts and rent some equipment - trust me, the two hours passed quickly!).

The sun was blazing.... the sky was blue.... the mountains at their best!

Besides a few incidents (Bjorn got something in his eyes when he fell of a lift, us walking up a hill since we didn't manage to get up in that same lift but still kept trying....) we had a wonderful day.

Lunch on the terrace looking out over the other skiers was not bad either... and even after we had given back the equipment the kids played in the snow... they are not used to snow, it shows....

View from the terrace with the "rug" lift in the back. So you can actually have coffee and supervise the kids...

To the left the lift that gave us problems (tire-fesses). They have a small kids version but it was closed...

Bjorn crying, his left eye is red. Probably he got snow in it when he fell off the lift.
