This was the Best Snowboard Holiday….ever
Just back from a fabulous two weeks at Auron in the Alps Maritime. And what a great time we all had. It has to be the best snowboard holiday …ever. Just ‘like old times’ as this was our fifteenth year there. The weather was good to us, fresh snow and some lovely sunny days.
Over the two weeks there were 29 of us. The first week was mostly for beginners, and everyone achieved a great deal with varying degrees of ease. Finishing the week on a high with black and red pistes under a few belts. Nice to see beginners progress and achieve so much. Well done you guys! I am sure you are now in the ‘I love Auron’ team.
The second week was for the hard core veteran nutters. Luckily it had snowed during the first week and early in the second week so we had plenty of powder and enough to enjoy some good off piste.
However this group seemed to spend a lot of time rolling in the powder and performing strange balancing acts in the evening. This year we were blessed with the lovely Le Face Black Mogul run. Locals heard to cry ‘Mon Dieu’ at the top so needless to say a few heroic tumbles and scary off piste moments to laugh (or cry) over in the evenings.
Highlight of the two weeks has to be the a stunning blue skies enjoyed for at least half our days there. Sun and snow what a combination. And as to Auron I will ‘say no more’ word is starting to get around….and it is ours we guard it for ever. WE LOVE AURON
