Italian High Altitude skiing!





It looks like we are on Aconcagua, somewhere very South American with all this scree!






Nop, we are at the top of Courmayeur ski resort, about to descend an amazing 1200m of vertical drop, down to the Val Veny.

The top lift used to be open for guides only. They even used to make you sign your name when you would exit the telepherique...

I had warned Kin, Mim and Woo about the quality of the snow, about the possible combat skiing when we would get down the couloirs. I prepared them for the worst. To our surprise we skied on a smooth surface, leaving stylishly beautiful light cloud behind on every turn.




No obstacle whatsoever, except that Mim had to find a more challenging route!









We had to renew our annual 3 courses meal lunch at Chiecco. Unbelievable ambiance, Anna is a blast! And the food is too delicious, the Mozarella Buffalo was succulent; the anchovies had a silvery ocean taste; Kin's wild bore and polenta looked the best; my veggie soup was filled with vitamins, Mim's tuna was perfectly perfumed with lime and black pepper and my Eliza'a pastas were so yummy.

Sorry Amy and Woo, didn't even taste your Fettucini all Pesto..., I was too full!
