Postcards from our passing 2015 winter
|Colle Bergia- Claviere Peak|
Nice change indeed.
|Fabrizio in Claviere and Marla in Mongenèvre|
|The Alps stretching out before us from the top of Claviere ski area|
It unites 7 ski areas, two of which, Pragelato and Sestriere, are at the top of our Chisone valley, and goes up and over to the Susa valley that runs parallel to us over the mountain behind us and included in these Olympic venues of 2006, is also Mongenèvre in France. So we headed up and over the top of our valley to Claviere and skied in two countries in one day, Italy in the morning and late afternoon and France for top of the hill skiing, with lunch on the deck in France on a clear blue sky kind of day, ooh, la la!
|Please note that all the food is served on real plates, cutlery, and glass water bottle. Very Nice!|
|La Baita --note the name, a mountain house or chalet|
|A little chalet right on the ski piste|
We usually ski across the way at Prali one of our most favorite and closest to home above tree line ski areas, and Sestriere being the next closest. We are close enough for a great day out skiing, but if you are planning a ski holiday where you will ski every day, you would want to be much closer to the slopes than where we are located. Guests at Christmas time have often spent a few days skiing and other days doing other activities, like snow shoeing, site seeing, cooking or shopping.
