Courchevel snow

The sun came out finally this morning so i headed up to Courchevel to check out the snow...and it didn't look too bad!!

Heading into a snowy Rocher de L'Ombre bowl:

Gigi cruising in:

Its worth bearing in mind that due to all the early snow the avalanche risk is very high at the moment so serious care is needed. Plenty of small slabs have popped out here & there, not least this not so small slab in the popular offpiste skiers left of Suisses (if you look carefully you'll see dozens of tracks where people had skied over this slab before it ripped - this is 50 metres to one side of the place where a similar sized slab killed a skier last winter):
