More Mont Jura Skiing

Mont Jura skiing consists of several resorts. Crozet, La Faucille, La Valserine, and Menthieres. Last weekend was Crozet and this Sunday was La Faucille. The weather was worse this week.  At the top of the chair lift it was quite windy with snow and ice blowing into our faces. We had to ski about 200 meters before the trees shaded the wind. I was  happy with this resort since there was a large easy slope down to the bottom of the hill. We actually thought the easy slope was a paved road in the summer time and was just packed with layers of snow in the winter. It was enjoyable and not crowded at all. We witnessed quite a few people off route skiing and getting stuck in the powder. 

On the drive down - the view of Lac Leman (Geneva's Lake)


The amazing drive

It was so cold the tips of my hair frosted. You have to look closely.

Rob needs ski goggles really badly. I have my huge sunglasses.
