Just after the big dump, the clouds lift and you can start to see where you are again and play in all the lovely powder. This one is just above Samoens in the Grand Massif, picking your way under the lift interspersed with trees. Its just about deep enough to try the first early season off piste foray. A few rock scrapes and a few dodgy trees, but it feels like a new adventure every season to off piste under the lift, as if no-one has ever done it before. Mist still hanging higher up the mountain. The lift is Les Molliets. Acrylic on Board 60cm x 85cm. Includes a white frame. This is a really characterful painting which I have been enjoying in the studio myself.
