Here is the video I made of my Christmas vacation period: you’ll probably notice it also includes my Christmas day (not travel, obviously! But it was easier to put them all in one video) and my trip to Saint Sorlin D’Arves.
I didn’t get much footage of the trip to the alps because I had a lot of deadlines that were due shortly afterwards. I did get a good few days skiing in though, and had a fun new years eve. It’s quite a small resort in comparison to the ones I have visited before – in the past I’ve been to Tignes, Courchevel, Les Deux Alpes, Les Alpes, Val Thorens, Utah – The Canyons, Obergurgl, amongst many more). On the surface it doesn’t seem like there is a lot to do in Saint Sorlin, but as I unfortunately found out once most of my assignments were done towards the end of the week, there is! You can paraglide, visit museums and factories, husky sled, drive a snowmobile, as well as, ski and snowboard of course!
It’s a very French resort, without loads of bars and clubs. It depends what you’re after in a resort really! We were all adults, so probably would have preferred a couple more bars as an entire group, but as I was working I didn’t mind too much!
The skiing was good, though I can’t say it was the best I’ve ever done. I’ve skied for about 15 years, so would have liked a few more black runs, but in saying that, the skiing was nice. Very enjoyable!
Hope you all like the video,
