Pow! On the 30th of december we left for a one week visit to Val Thorens. We’d been to Les Menuires twice now, but Val Thorens was never on the program. Untill now! We started with the small pass for Valtho only and that appeared to be enough, especially because of the weather. In jan the snow is guaranteed, but the sight isn’t, so the first day only a couple of elevators were open.
But despite this, we had fun the first day, because there was a lot of snow. And i mean a lot!! Later the week the weather started to clear and conditions were just perfect. Lots of snow and a blue sky. What more could we ask for?
A couple of weeks before the trip I bought a GoPro Hero2 for making some footage on the slopes. Check out the first footage. I you don’t know me that good you might think I can snowboard really well and my condition is in great shape 🙂
