Christmas Day in Chamonix

Christmas here in chalet Maison Jaune is always very special….  and this year was no exception…. 
Beautiful sunny day, with just a hint of mist in the valley, and the snow conditions were amazing!  Soft, groomed, empty pistes….  (everyone else must have been inside opening their pressies!)

Helen and I got out to ski in the morning for a few runs… as per usual, calling our families from the Prarion ski lift, before dashing in to finish preparing the meal, and opening the Champagne at about 4 o’clock….

Red: traditional colour of Christmas

To wash down the seven courses, there was Champagne, Pouilly Fumé, and  nice St. Emillion Grand Cru Classé.  The meal included Fois Gras, plus the obligatory roast turkey with bread sauce and all the trimmings, and Christmas pudding, of course….  delicious…. 

All in all, it was a long day, but very rewarding and enjoyable…
