Christmas Lunch at the Saliniere is a tradition in our house and I added a little loop of the Brimbelles and Astragal pistes afterwards. Still recovering a bit from a cold so not on top form.

Oratoire in the mist

Les Sagnes, again
Practicing 1 and 2 skate around the Sagnes piste.Some sections of ice and visible soil but good skating. +5C at 13h00.
