More snow after Chamonix

I got back to Samoens after the week in Chamonix Friday night and driving back I could already tell I had in front of me more powder days. It was raining in the valley and as I started to drive up the mountain the rain became snow. I could not believe my luck. After that amazing week, I was coming back to more snow! Saturday is also the best day of the week round here as is what we call the “changeover” day and the slopes are usually empty. This is the view going up from the bubble and when I got off the first lift at 1,600 mt. The best thing is that it was only 9 in the morning

from the bubble on the way up
