Decided to use the day available on our Discovery ski pass to head over to Les Arcs. Everyone managed to get up early (with help from a fire alarm going off) given the need to get over to the Vanoise Express. Were in Plan Peisey by 1020. Traversed across the resort to the Transarc Gondola at Arc 1800. This took us up to the Aiguille Grive from where we could drop down to Arc 2000 at the far end of area. Did some nice runs down around the Varet lift before in lunch at Arc 2000. TC and JA took on a black run first thing in the afternoon. Runs down Arc 1800 side fast and wide. Nice red and black run below Derby chair. Back to Vanoise at about 1530. Needed to take Montchavin chairs to get back up over L’Arpette. Final run in Plagne Centre. Back to Chalet at about 1720 – huge day of skiing!
JA, JB, HE, JW felt the need for a beer or five in Le Mine – others too tired.
