The Premiers Flocons run, Les Breuleux
"November: the first snow, the first "real" flakes to settle on the ground. It is hard to believe but the next day it has snowed heavily and we start to think about dusting off our cross-country skis. Our hopes are raised the day after that when another layer settles on top of the first... In Les Breuleux, the "Premiers Flocons" is usually the first run open. We are delighted to see that they have brought out the machine and given it a try. It worked, the layer of snow holds and we are able to take our first steps on the trail. The feelings come flooding back and it is like riding a bike; you never forget how to do it. Our muscles gradually loosen up and we are still in good shape thanks to the sports we enjoy in the summer. The "Premiers Flocons" run is something of a regional reference for cross-country skiers, the guiding light for winter sports fans. If you come across the shadow of Mutcho, the "guru of the narrow board", it is a sign that winter is back and you are sure to have fun for the next few months. Thank you, André Boillat, aka Mutcho, the soul of the pistes, the undisputed expert and the eternal enthusiast of cross-country skiing: long may he live!"
