Wow,,,,,one week perfect skiing in fantastic conditions. It was sunshine and blue sky all the time and the slopes were perfect prepared. Especially early in the morning, when the piste was slightly harder, you could find perfect moments on skies.
Of course, for an alpinist and alpine skier, the most enjoyable feeling is, when you achieve nice and precise carving turns. Those turns fullfills your body with powerfull energy and new experiances of new slopes and terrain are born into your mind. This year was exeptional....I made my first trip to Valle Blanche with a superb young quide. It was demanding but a wonderful skiexperience. Next year again.
There is one more thing, maybe the most important for some persons, the hotel where you stay. I felt absolutely perfect moments also in my hotel.
I stayed in Hotel Mont Blanc. This hotel is situated on the best place in Chamonix. You have in the hotels neighborhood everything what you need....shopping street, cafe, equipment service restaurants etc. etc..and the hotel itself is modern but warm and gave a luxurious feeling.
After skiing you could use the excellent SPA with a warm outside swimming pool with an amazing view to the Mont Blanc. If you felt that the warm swimming pool was not enough you could choose two saunas....one with steam and the otherone conventional. If you felt your body extremly tired you could go to the massage and after that to quiet relaxing room or alternativelyt to the brand new gym with new and modern equipments. This alternative is planned for "real" sportmen but suits very well to everyone, who is interested in keeping all muscles in good shape. In this hotel there are many variations how to relax your mind and body.
I choosed to go to my nicely and with good taste decorated, clean room with a very good.......for my body....bed. I relaxed completely and prepared myself for the next day.
During my visit in Chamonix I eated in several restaurants but have to say, that the the best food in Chamonix provided the hotels own restaurant. The food was worth its money. It was made with good taste fanastic rawmaterials. Excellent. You could eat in a quite and relaxing atmosphere and before starting your dinner you could take a glass of champagne in the comfortable bar.
I was very pleased and surprised with all the service what I got in the roomprice. In the reception the receptionist fixed to me the skitickets. Also the hotels own shuttle service, after we agreed my timeschedule, drove me from the hotel to the lifts and after skiing back to hotel, This worked brilliantly. I really felt that I am in good hands.
One thing is sure...next year again
