The week started off with a bright sunny day on Monday morning and because it was my family’s last morning before heading back to England I took the day off so we could go for a serious piste cruise, and I learnt something from the experience.
If you are staying at the La Daille end of the resort and you don’t start really early you can have a nightmare trying to get on a bus...
My kids were a little slow getting out of the house and by the time the bus arrived it was jam-packed and we needed to muscle our way on, all at different doors, and we live off the second stop from La Daille. By the third stop it was impossible for anyone to get on so the crowd had to wait for the next bus, which would have had a similar scramble. (I should have taken a photo!)
I used to make fun of people being dropped off by their chalet company chauffeur when they could have easily taken the bus but I eat my words and now recommend that you check to see if your chalet company offers a drop-off service if your accommodation is at the La Daille end of town during the busy school holiday weeks.
