It's not often you get good conditions low down, but right now is one of those times. In the 3 valleys there are quite a few runs that drop along way down into the valleys below, most of which I have skied. The descent to Villarlurin just above Moutiers is one I had never quite got around to doing - so when I got a phone call this week to take Adrian, Oli & Sam down there, the answer was a definite YES!

Conditions were just about perfect, blue skies, powder down to about 850m, and cool air temperatures.

Working along the ridge from the top of the Olympique chair:

Fantastic powder down to Col de la Lune:

Sam, Adrian & Oli:

Good open skiing through the trees:

Bit of new-school tree-grinding:

A bit steeper dropping into the Belleville valley, but still quite skiable:

Oli getting some air:

There are 3 skiers in there...:

Good snow in the meadows still at 900m:

Nearly there - walking down into the village:

All in all this run gave a surprisingly good ratio of good skiing to combat skiing and is definitely worth the effort!
