xc fun

We had another great outing at Vattay. Laughing and racing along the trails. Sun, sludge, some ice and après ski with accordion music. Perfect.

xc weekend

We spent the weekend at Vattay. Saturday, we tagged along with Xavi and Roc as they started exploring the trails. 

Sunday, we took advantage of the ski bus to for more winter fun. Since we are running low on ski days this season, we decided to take the Noir de Divonne 18km loop, the last remaining trail at Vattay that I hadn't yet skied.

via ferrata at fort l'ecluse

We are between the seasons now, not much snow to ski, but enough melting and refreezing to cut up your ankles running the trails. Via ferrata called to us this morning, so Laura and I decided to brave the cold metal rungs and make our first climb of the season. The start was chilly in the shade, but we made our way up into the sun warming with the lizards on the rocks.

signs of spring

I needed a little break after adding some kilometers yesterday, so I went for a walk around town to see the blossoms and enjoy the blue sky.
