RESORT BLOGGERS: Christmas is out the way for Laura in La Rosière!

Catch up with Laura in La Rosière...

Okay, Christmas is out of the way. Thank god.

A seasonnaires nightmare. The most expensive week of the season... You're bound to get the rich "stuck up, I paid for this and I'll do what I want" or, more pleasantly, the rich kooky sort who are there for a laugh.

Unfortunately for me... I definitely had a chalet of each.

Christmas Eve as a seasonnaire isn't easy, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen helping the boys to finish their prep which meant no skiing really, just too busy. Plus I Effed my ski up landing on a rock in the middle of a mogul field .

Never the less (and an hour of ski fixing later) I set our staff flat up with presents, tinsel and fairy lights and invited all my staff over pre-breakfast for Buck's Fizz and present opening sesh. Even though we were hungover Christmas morning, it went down a treat. Short ski to Italy for a pizza and cracking 4 course Christmas Dinner in the evening! Day off was Boxing Day, which meant an epic ski to Italy, huge lunch and plenty of wine, genepi and limoncello!

If you're the family type, I imagine this is the time of year that makes you "homesick". **Yawn** Here's some advice, you're in the most Christmassy place, with snow, friends you've made for life and all the free wine you can drink...!! Be happy!!

So to all my fellow seasonnaires, ski lovers and snow enthusiasts, Happy New Year... You're welcoming in 2014 in the best place in the world.
