It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, 
the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.
 This crisp winter air is full of it.
 ~John Burroughs, "Winter Sunshine"

A winter's day on a mountain top, blue sky and sunshine,
a night in a cosy chalet, 
a walk to a ski village to enjoy a gondola ride,
a steaming coffee, sitting outdoors in the warm sunshine, 
a soak in a hot-tub,
good food with family and friends,
 curling up with a book,
 watching grand-boys at play.... all added up to a satisfying 24 hours.

The ice tower

Pristine tubing runs

Ready - Set - Ski all day
not me!

Grand-boys with endless energy after a day of skiing

Families spending quality time on this winter holiday

Following the sunset - homeward bound
