Suprisingly good snow in freezing Meribel

5th January 2009

It has been a busy week here in Meribel over the New Year holiday but we are pleased to report the slopes are back to normal with suprisingly good snow cover considering the masses that skied the 3 valleys last week.

We are sad to say we lost one of our Fish and Pips chefs over Christmas to a broken ankle.  After an operation and 4 days in Moutiers hospital (where she was served tongue for lunch!), we waved farewell to Jenny on New Years Day as we she headed back to Surrey, with an ankle pinned together to be pampered and look after by her parents.  We hope Jenny will be back with us in February to chef in Chalet L’Ours.  Get well soon Jen from all of the team.

As sad as we were to lose Jenny, we were equally thrilled to gain Vinnie – our new chef in Chalet Braye.  Vinnie comes to us with bags of experience and bundles of enthusiasm for the winter ahead, so welcome to Vinnie from all at F&P!

Holly and I have managed to sneak in a couple of hours on the pistes this morning and can report on excellent conditions.  There is still very good snow cover, and although it is absolutely FREEZING we found miles of beautifully groomed and deserted pistes in the Meribel Valley alone.

Do have a look at the website for our remaining January availability and take advantage of these quiet slopes!
