We hired a luge (toboggan) as we couldn't find one at the house. Didn't think of looking under the swimming pool deck, which is Where Stef later told us we would find theirs!
We took a picnic and ate it in the lunch room provided. The children really wanted to go up on the chairlift, but as we can't ski there didn't really seem to be any point.
The little plastic toboggan that we hired was plenty of fun for our first time in the snow. There was a little fenced-off section reserved for "la luge", so we played there for a while, and the kids experimented with making snow balls. Snow started to fall gently to add to the beautiful setting. As the snow grew heavier it was time to come back to the house as we had arranged to have afternoon tea at the neighbour's house. We have met Francoise before, but not her husband Thierry.
