Yeah - not looking good is it :-( I'm not convinced it's really been
cold enough to do any serious snow making either, although Orange/OK
seem to be coming along nicely for the Premier Neige comps.
Skiing into May? The snow might be good, but if it's like last year,
when the French say something's going to *close* on time, it's really
going to close on time! They had the first bits of the old Palafour
lift on the ground by 9am of the day after..!
