It's beginning to look a lot like Easter..

What a wonderful few weeks we've had in resort!

There's been plenty of blue skies and sunshine and now we're finally seeing some more snow coming through. Perfect timing for all those families heading to resort this Easter break! Here's a few pics from our fab nanny Charlotte who's been looking after these two cheeky monkeys in Les Arcs 1950 this week. They've had a brilliant time!

We were also treated to the rare event of the solar eclipse this month. It was amazing to watch and a couple of us hiked high into the hills to witness it in all it's glory over the snowy mountains of Les Arcs and the Tarentaise valley. Our efforts didn't go unrewarded as we witnessed a strange darkness and eerie quietness momentarily creep over the mountains before finally allowing the glorious sunshine to make its way back out again. It was quite an experience!

In Tignes, the SFR freestyle tour came to town and didn't disappoint, with the Canadians reigning triumphant in both the mens and the women's half pipe finals. La Plagne Local Kevin Rolland came in fourth shifting him into third in the general rankings of the halfpipe world cup. Catch all of the results and some of the action here.

Well we better get back to the slopes and enjoy the fresh snow conditions. We want to wish everyone a fantastic Easter break in the snow and we'll be blogging again in no time about all of the great stuff the nannies have been up to in resort over the holidays.

Half Term Bliss!

It's been a great half term week in the snowy resorts! We've had lots of sun and some fab skiing conditions. Hopefully everyone took full advantage of their half term winter break and all our families have gone back home energised and refreshed after some great family time away!

The nannies were certainly working hard and we've been getting some truly fab feedback to show what a super team we're lucky to have for SnowLittle this winter! Here are just a few snaps and just some of the great comments received so far..

Wow! Great work girls! We're already getting set for Easter, planning some more great activities for sunny days in the snow and snowy days in the chalet. There will be plenty of baking, Easter egg hunts and games in store for sure!
