Enclosed are a few comments from guests at La Source Ski chalet over the past years. 

Mick, Pat, Joe & Albert:  21 April 2010  -  Ash Cloud Rescue. 
Thank you Michael for the excellent accommodation, marvellous food & convivial company. Everything was perfect, even when the ash cloud descended over Britain & France on Wednesday 14th April, 2010 closing the Airports for 6 days.  The unexpected extra days at LaSource were most enjoyable.  
And an incredible thank you Michael, for using the Minibus to drive everyone at LaSource back to England, leaving 7.30am Wednesday morning (21st April), arriving Luton airport 1am Thursday morning.   All 10 guests really appreciated your ash cloud rescue.

La Source guests for week commencing 13 February 2005
       'Tale of a Tub'
Working in the rat race gives you little time to blink!
So annually, about this time, it’s to the Alps we go
And so we are in ‘Villard’ - with a glass of wine to drink
Sitting in the hot tub in the snow.

Weather on the Monday was too foggy to see far
Steve said to Andy “Can you see which way to go? ”no”, so…
…lower down the mountain we found a cosy bar,
And planned ‘rotas’ for the hot tub in the snow.

Six children in the chalet made Michael go quite white
Though for parents it is blissful to send kiddies down below
To watch the ‘tele’, play some games, chatter, laugh and fight…
…over which 4 share the hot tub in the snow.

As well as coffee every morning with a cheery “Rise and Shine”
Michael took great care to tell us what we had to know…
…about pistes and shops, lift passes, pizza, snow-chains, bars and wine
And how to use the hot tub in the snow!”

At 9am each morning we piled into the bus
And travelled in such style to the ‘ascenseur’ or tow
Then at 4pm we headed back through Villard Reculas
You’ve guessed it – to the hot tub in the snow!

Skiing is our passion and we stayed out all day long
Injuries were gathered by the skiers, fast and slow
But it didn’t really matter because when it all went wrong
The ‘cure all’ was the hot tub in the snow.

Birthday Cake or tapenade or pork or home-made bread
Hannah served Mike’s yummy food with a cheerful “Hello!”
And because we were not cooking, washing, serving, then instead…
…we were relaxing in the hot tub in the snow.

We all enjoyed our week here in Michael’s lovely home and…
…tradition will continue, for next year we’ll head for snow
But one thing for sure from now on, wherever we may roam,
We’ll be looking for a hot tub – ho, ho, ho!
