A Day in Les Gets – by Dougie Dykes (Mr Ski Guest)

A day in Les Gets from a Mr Ski Guest

Fortified by a Mr Ski Breakfast consisting of porridge, scrambled eggs (light and fluffy) we were prepared for our day on the slopes. The 9:45 ski bus bound for Mt Chery was calling.

Just 5 minutes later Mt Chery a pretty little mountain that we adore. The skiing offers beautifully groomed pistes designed to flatter our skiing on the front face of the mountain. The back on the other hand provides powder, or fun blacks down to the ‘Chanterelle’ for our first stop of the day. Here you get live blues music pretty much all day.

One further Mt Chery challenge awaited – through the trees on our own safari, creating our own tracks until we eventually found the trail back to the ‘Point de Chery’ lift. Now we split into 2 groups. The eager continued to pound the slopes, the wise electing to lunch. One successful morning – what can the afternoon tempt?

A quick couple of runs around the bowl, the intrepid explorers meet for the ski back to the chalet.

We were promised a great new route through the meadows. Our first goal was to spot the red ribbons that Mally and Carly had left to show the way. These were eventually found after a couple of fruitless exploratory diversions. We were committed skiing between tall pines over wee saplings – was this fun!!! The ribbons tied to trees at regular intervals marked the trail. The meadow found our last powder of the day. Still the ravine crossing to come. This was a snow-covered log bridge over the basin requiring some skill to cross. Arrival at the chalet was a relief for some elation for others

Après ski was spent in bar bush recalling the day’s highs and lows. The trip up the hill in the Mr Ski Landover provided one last opportunity to belt out the chalet anthem ‘life is a roller coaster’

After a big dinner – to bed looking forward to tomorrow and another adventure on the slopes of Les Gets.
