Spring snow in the 4th Valley

Yesterday goes down as one of the best days skiing for a long time.  Setting out from Meribel, we headed to Val Thorens where the snow was just beginning to soften in this amazingly warm spring weather.  From there, we traversed along then side stepped up to the top of the 4th Valley – Orelle.  Many people had the same idea, but that did nothing to stop the smiles on our faces as we skied through the soft spring snow all the way down the big open valley.

The views from the top are just spectacular, with the snow capped mountains stretching for miles.  April skiing really is fantastic!
