2018/01/03 6 days in Bourg St Maurice for Trying to Snowboard at ParadiSki Tignes and Val d'Isère
π 2018-01-03 01:01 in Snow, Trips
On Jan 3rd, I took a train to a train to a bus to a train to get to Bourg St Maurice. This ended up not being an easy rip since I was done right during a big snowstorm that disabled the rail to our destination. I did get there eventually, but it was much more work than planned.

The rest of Bourg St Maurice is not much to see, just a good base to go to ParadiSki (les arcs), and have Tignes/Val d'Isère be about 1h away by bus. Sadly, the weather was crap as in warm crap. It rained on the bottom slopes (up to 2000 meters) while the top slopes were shut down for wind most of the time. I ended up only skiing 2.5 days out of 6, pathetic :(

At least we got to enjoy some dinners and a side trip to Annecy on another day where all ski resorts were shut down due to the winds...

The TGV trip was nice, too bad that train couldn't take me all the way to the destination
