There’s always plenty of speculation around autumn time each year. Here in the mountains locals talk about the onions having thick skins, the volume of bees and the length of the hairs on the goats legs. All are indicators of a good winter season to come, and this year is no exception. El-nino may be growing stronger and we may well see some early snowfall here in the Portes du Soleil, but the powers that be must set an official season opening date each year, regardless!
