Green Huts, Alpe d'Huez, France, February 2022

Thursday doors – 24 February 2022

Doors 174 – Mountain doors, Alpe d’Huez, February 2022

I have been absent from the Thursday doors club so far this year, due to the pressure of work, but am missing it very much and so am squeezing this one in, just to let you know I haven’t completely disappeared off the face of the earth.

My wife and I were lucky enough to join some friends for a skiing holiday in early February, our first holiday abroad for three years, and first together without our children (almost 20 years). The trip had been jeopardised several times over by changes in COVID-19 rules around Europe and the UK, but we made it and had the most fabulous time in Alpe d’Huez, France. Great company, great snow and some of the best skiing I have ever done, despite having a knee injury.

Just one door for you today, but what a door! On one of the long green runs in Auris, heading to the Chalvet lift, we’re these two little green huts popping out of the snow. The huts are curious in themselves and posed loads of questions, mostly around what on earth these huts were for. I still haven’t worked that out yet. A lovely door on a lovely hut in a lovely location.

That just about wraps it up, and I hope I will have time to post more doors soon. I hope you all have a great weekend.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors  from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.

  1. That is a remarkable find, Steve. Sitting in the field of snow, it makes an excellent photo. I image it looks good in a field of wildflowers or whatever else I can imagine fills in after the snow melts, but this is beautiful. I hope work settles down, but I’m glad you could join us today. I’m also glad you have a nice holiday.
