La Clusaz in Spring - amazing. A small French ski resort not far from Geneva and Annecy, it was the first time we've visited and certainly won't be the last. Our main aim was some Spring snowboarding and it didn't disappoint, we arrived to a foot of fresh powder and unnervingly quiet slopes.
Unlike many French ski resorts La Clusaz and its neighbouring Le Grand Bornand which make up the Massif des Aravis ski area, have retained their French village look and feel along with a great variety of authentic eateries and artisan shops. Predictably we stashed the chalet full of fantastic French bread, cheese and wine and proceeded to devour the lot.
But the signs of Spring everywhere were also enough to remind me summer is on the way, and it won't be long until I'll have the pleasure of being based in Tignes and teaching on the Chalet Cookery Course again. As always I miss the mountains now I'm gone, but it won't be long until I'm back and until then I'll be counting the days ....
