We woke up to several inches of fresh snow this morning. From our window we could hear the avalanche guns so Cara and I decided to go and find some fresh tracks elsewhere. About an hours drive from here there is little gem of a place which is best accessed from Notre Dame de Bellcombe. The ski area is known as Espace Diamant and it has expanded vaslty over the past years and boasts some amazing skiing with few people and one hardly ever has to que. Many of the forests are home to rare birds so are protected and skiing some of trees is therefor prohibited, but the skiing was truly superb today with good light and visibility. Even with the new snow the avalanche risk was lowish. We have had an outstanding day!
