Polo, Park and off-piste heaven
The weather over the last week seems to have thrown everything at us, sunshine, wind, snow and sub zero temperatures. Next week looks set to do the same as we're predicted sun for 2 days then snow after that.
As you can hear the wind has picked up to some quite severe levels but is changing direction a lot and should die down tomorrow.The Snow Polo Masters is coming to Val d'Isere for the next four days which should be a great entertianment for those snowy evenings.
