Only a few days before high season starts. The weather is great: sunshine and snow... what else could we hope for?

So, do check your gear. Are your skis waxed? Sharp? Fixations checked?
If you haven't enough time at home, you could ask the guys in Les Collons. As Les Masses has no ski shop (yet), I prefer to go to Theytaz Sports (next to the Office du Tourisme in Les Collons 1800).
The ground floor shop sell ski jackets, gloves etc. Downstairs they have a variety of ski's and boards, boots and helmets, for sale and for rent. Weekends (saterday afternoon and suday morning) in high season can be a little crowded, though. So better have your ski's waxed any other day. If you want to rent, you could make an online reservation http://www.theytazsports.ch

Every evening we look into the sky above and pray that the heavy rains in Holland transform to heavy snow and cover all mountains in Switzerland.
Well, at least one tiny snowflake fell, the last few days, and it's getting colder as well.
Yesterday, I saw the first skiers on the webcam. The Trabanta-lift is open, as well as the cable from Mayens de l"Ours. And probably you can have a nice 'vin chaud' afterwards in the Tipi?!

Have a look!
