Best Beer in the world?

I found this image on my Mac whilst having a randon hunt through some old files. I thought it was already on the blog, but I was mistaken.

This shot was taken after a great day ridin’ the slopes in Chamonix in March. There is not a lot that comes close to that first well earned beer at the end of a perfect day on the slopes, shared with your best mates. That truly tired, satisfied feeling with the low sun falling on your face is pure nirvana. Yes, it may have cost an extortionate €8, but f*ck me, it was worth it. Actually it was worth getting another round or two in.

Beer was shared with Spider, G and joining us later was Mike & Dave. It’s one of those moments that will never be forgotten.

View from the top of the Tête de Balme chairlift, 2270m.

The first full day riding in the Balme region of Chamonix produced a stunning view from the top of the Tête de Balme chairlift.

The morning was hindered by low cloud and flat light conditions, but by early afternoon the cloud began to lift and produced an amazing view across the valley. The last remnants of the cloud hung motionless with the sunlight streaming through, producing aqua blue horizontal streams of light across the valley. Skiers and boarders dismounting the chairlift gathered to see this wonderful scene.
