Family Snowboard Day

Quiet pistes in the morning and nice views towards Mont Blanc

Location: Les Contamines
Snow: Spring snow pistes
Weather: Bluebird, warm

My family are staying in Saint Gervais this week (a much better holiday base for families and intermediate skiers than Chamonix) so I’ve been staying with them for the last few days between day trips with my Chamonix friends, but had a day on the hill with them today in Les Contamines, snowboarding most of the day with my sister and future brother-in-law on their first ever week of snowboarding.  They were doing very well for their first week, and being my first day in over three years it took me a few runs to get back into it but a really fun day cruising around in good spring snow.

My rental board even matched my outfit

Got a comment, question, or your own report from elsewhere in the Chamonix valley? Leave a comment below (Facebook login required).
