Snow Mountain - Gourette

We went to Gourette last Sunday. It was a last minute trip organised on Saturday night.

Gourette was about 3-4 hours drive from where we are staying. We had 4 families going in 2 cars. We started off at 7am and reached there about 11am + after one or two wrong turns. :P

Took our early lunch at the first restaurant we saw and began our FUN DAY!!

Shannon happily walking on the "snow mountain" ^_^

Now, we have to walk up the slope

When we finally reached the top, we have to rest awhile to catch some breath puff and pant LOL... sometime cannot blame us lousy lah, Shannon wanted us to carry her up the slope leh... "chuan" ~_~`

And we started to slide down using the sleigh... This is the BEST part!!


However, sometimes Shannon will end up crying because....

Well it's not my fault.. My backside oso pain siah... ^o^

Although it's really fun but also tiring as we need to walk up the slope again. After some ups and downs, J tried to make a snowman for the kids to play. It was a small snowman but it was enough for the kids to fight over it. ;p

Overall, the trip was fun fun fun for the kids as well as ourselves!!! The only disappointment was we din get to see the "snowing "which forcasted on Saturday.
