Who’d
have thought it possible a decade ago. You get on a train in a beautifully
restored St Pancras at 5:30pm on a Friday after work and by 10:30am on Saturday
you’ve just taken your skis off and you are sitting outside the Restaurant at the top of Mont de la Chambre (2850m)
eating a smoked salmon panini with a choice of whether to ski to your left down to
Val Thorens, to your right to Meribel or back to Les Menuires where you’ve just
come from? And you get all of this without emitting the 300-400 kg of CO2 that a low-cost flight would have cost.
