Alpine Winter starts early

Have just returned to the Alps after 6 weeks in the UK, and what a pleasure to find snow at the roadside before even getting to Albertville. With 15cm on the ground outside the front door in Bozel it looks like a good start to the season, though a top up up high is definitely required to cover some of the stony ground...

Here's a picture looking across at Courchevel from Champagny, following a lung-bursting cross-country session this morning.
