Well can you believe it another sun shiny day....

And another hot hot hot day!

My brother and I head over to Merible Mottaret

to do this small mountain peak known as

Mont Du Vallon with a summit of 2952. Here we are in national park terretory and you are not permitted to go off the pistes. Of course the benifit of doing this mountain is you may come across a polar bear!

It's a gondala to the top where you would expect the view to be good.

Worryingly though the view down the valley of Meribel was rather green. The hot hot weather had melted the snow over here!

With such luck we actually manage to catch a glimps of a polar bear at the end of this short film!

From here we headed up the mountain and over to Les Menuires at the summit of Roc Des 3 Marches at 2704 meters.

As we got nearer the village center the snow was slushy put it was like powder boarding, it was great ;)

Luckily there was snow on the pistes! Look at that horrible rusty tower in the center of Les Menuires :( This place is known to be the ugliest ski resort in Europe!

And so we work our way up to Pointe De La Masse at 2804 meters.

You will notice the snow is fantastic here once more.

And this is it. That tower that you can see for miles around on top of the summit. Not so good looking close up. So I had a cup of tea and some cake to make me feel better.

We took the masse moguled black run down, for some reason. And yes it was my idea. I'm getting quite good at them now!

Look a better view of that rusty tower in the center of Les Menuires!

Well we got back to Val Thornes that afternoon and...

took it easy with my mom....

on some green slopes.....

The sun had lasted all day so it was nice to lie around the various areas of the piste waiting for her to catch up.

Well the snowboarding was all over now. And I seemed to have an eye infection. Time to take the contact lenses out I guess.

Well I enjoyed another sunset and another beer.

We packed ready for the journey home which was to start at 2:30am.
