25 Jan - Life Before Scotland (Part 2)

The story continues. While the summer seasons in Greece were brilliant fun, variety is the spice of life someone once said. So we spent a few winters in the mountains of France. The ski season is memorable for it's highs and lows (appropriate for a mountain resort). We enjoyed 3 amazing seasons of great snow, brilliant skiing, meeting loads of people and enjoying running a chalet right on the slopes. I also remember these seasons as the hardest I have worked often up at 6.30 to help with breakfast duties, getting the clients out on the slopes, happy in ski school, fix skis, shop for dinner, balance the books, always remember to fit in some ski time then sort dinner, entertain guests and finish off the day with a beer on the way home. Crawl into bed about midnight and then do it all again the next day and the next.... Tiring but great fun. Beckie and I reckon when the girls are all grown up we might relive our youth and go and work another season??
