Day 10

Well we got to a beautiful little camping spot just outside the village of Mesnay at N46,89834 E5,80036. After a little walk around in a snow shower I decided to push on to find a Lidl to stock up on food, water and other essentials 🍷🍷 before heading back to the mountains.  After driving through some spectacular scenery we found one at Morez.

Supplied and fed we headed on to Les Rousses which is a beautiful alpine town to pick up info from the tourist information then on up to the ski area at Massif Des Tuffes 1420 meters.
This looks a great place to stay and is seriously close to the ski lift
The area has 50 km of piste and the option to ski over into Switzerland.
The sun came out after lunch so we decided to go for a walk along the "Ski Fond" cross country ski tracks
Don't know if you can make it out in the background but there were a group using ski wheelchairs today and it looked great fun
The area continued to open out away from the ski lift
With a fantastic view around every corner
We even managed to stop a skier to take a photo of us
Lynn sunk in the snow 
Assaulted a snowman and then returned to OWT for a typical camper van tea
Had to put these on as I know the kids will be worrying that I am not eating properly whilst I am away 😀🍷🍷
What a place to spend the night
Can't wait to ski again tomorrow.
