Driving in Saint Jean de Sixt

With snow on the ground here in Saint Jean de Sixt, and the partial opening of La Clusaz happening this weekend, the locals are happy. The man driving this car was particularly happy when he arrived home and parked his car. He did three fantastic donuts on the road, which was covered with a layer of ice, then powdery snow on top of that β€” perfect for making snow donuts.

He can keep his snow donuts: I’m off to La Balme to check out the snow. Happy Saturday!

    You go girl!! I’d rather be there.
    We’re cooking down here!! When mentioning to a colleague that we are looking at buying French property, she commented that we could follow the sun; six months in Aus and six months in France. “Tu as raison, mon ami” I replied (or would have if she spoke French), but not following the sun! I don’t like summer in Australia! OK, rant complete. Enjoy your skiing Wen.

    Ron, that’s partly why I left Australia too. Just too hot. I heard there’s a bit of a heatwave happening. I hope things cool down soon. Skiing was GREAT! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

  3. Wow! I would not be so brave as to try donuts in my car. I can just imagine trying to explain an accident to the insurance company! Enjoy La Balme!

    Emm, it’s fun being a passenger (but only if there’s lots of space and no chance of crashing – I’m a total wimp!).
