Vallée de la Manche - Morzine.

We've had a lot of snow as you can see... and probably another metre of the stuff since this was taken.

This is the Vallée de la Manche, near Morzine and the GR5, which passes nearby taking walkers to either the Mediterranean in the south or to Lac Léman and on to Amsterdam for those inclined ... but today this is a randonnée ski up to the Col de Golese. A good three hour ski hike above where the weather closed in and a storm brewed. It took us just 15 minutes to ski down.

A beautiful place for a picnic, sitting on upturned skis and slicing sausage and cheese, and tearing pieces of bread from a baguette.

A great way to spend a day.
