Powder day at le Chinaillon (Aravis)

Set above the village of le Grand Bornand and linked to the resort by the same name, le Chinaillon is an old alpine village in the best tradition. Today I got to ski some good powder (about two feet of it) in a snowstorm that’s like on its tenth day (at least it feels like it) and the forecast tells us this is supposed to go on into next week. Here are the winter wonderland pictures (click to enlarge):

About two feet of freshies.

Can't resist the little house on the mountain...

More ski-in, ski-out property...

Village life at le Chinaillon.

Down at le Grand Bornand, there is no village if there ain't a church in the middle of it.

Back at Annecy lake, view of Castogne (mountain to the left) and Chateau Saint Bernard (bottom right).

Chateau Saint Bernard has been in the same family for the last 900 years, now that's stability!
