As every year, we'll be inaugurating the ski season with a great trip on the long puente holiday on the beginning of December. We're going to the Grand Tourmalet or the Pyragudes domain, in the French Pyrenees.

Snow alert! If the snowfall is better and larger in another resort nearby, we'll go there instead!

THE RESORT

We'll be going to Grand Tournalet or to Peyragudes. Both large resorts in the French side of the Pyrenees (about 6-7h car ride)

Where: We're staying in appartmets of different capacities depending on the final number of people right by the slopes, the restaurants, and the ski shops.

What: We'll be there 4 nights with 3 days skiing (to avoid getting to Madrid very late at night on Sunday).

When: Monday 5th (6th and 8th are national holidays, you'd have to ask for Friday 7th off) . Leaving from outside Hotel Abba at 4pm. Coming back Sunday 9th around 6pm.

Transport: We'll share cars and/or a private van, or get a minibus with driver (if there's more than 20 people interested). Check prices below.

Eating and drinking: We'll have breakfast at home and lunch on the slopes (you can fix yourself a sandwich at home to take with you or just buy food ont he slopes' bars). At dinner some days we'll cook at home, pitching in for groceries and sharing making dinner and cleaning up and, some other days, at least one, we'll go out for a typical French raclette dinner yummy!!
