An arrival in the snow
First Impressions and a Change of Programme
Our rendezvous was scheduled for 9 a.m. on site. We arrived a bit late, after a beautiful, and exhausting, ten-minute walk in the fresh snow. From afar, we spotted the dogs – all attached except for one. This was Peuf, a little husky that was too young to be part of the team. She ran over to greet us and, when she got to our feet, demanded we pet her. Even a tough guy would have cracked. Then, we said hello to Morgan, a passionate musher from Blois who immediately made us welcome. He explained to us that the snow had been falling continuously since the day before, so he had changed the programme a bit. Our outing would be shorter than planned and we would not be climbing to the heights of the resort. No problem – we were already happy to be there.
