Europe 2012 : Geneva


We awoke Friday to bluebird day and freezing temperatures. Some groups headed up to Italy while others stayed in the Riffelberg area. The snow was in great shape and we even managed to find some fresh stuff. We skied to a late lunch which some groups had at Les Marmottes and others ate at The Blatten. All groups ended up at the “Chicken Coop” before heading down the hill for the last time. The weekly wrap-up was eloquently done by the Dingster, while Silvija and Dick summed up the European adventure. Lots of laughs were had and the festive mood kept going into the night.

Saturday was a sad day as we walked out of the Bristol and made our way to the buses. As per usual we had “too many bags” and we had to get a bigger trailer. After brief stops in Martigny and the airport, we arrived at the Hotel Eden in Geneva. The wind was whipping white-caps on the lake and the temperature was colder than we experienced on the slopes. We braved the bitter cold and did a little site-seeing before heading inside to check out the shopping.
