I can’t ski so I took the opportunity to film life at the top of the cable car at Le Lioran ski resort in Cantal. This little film features a mountain rescue, some aerial skier shots and the cable car ride back down to the valley.

• Chez Lucy near the car park at Le Lioran is run by a friendly English woman. Lucy is originally from Cornwall, has a big smile and looks quite a bit like the former model turned Emmerdale actress, Lorraine Chase.
• Lunch at Chez Lucy was reasonably priced with plenty of stodge to fuel the skiing. Cheese soup! (Soupe au fromage) – grated cheese and stock (5’50 euros). Tartiflette Auvergnette au St Nectaire, cheese and potatoes (11 euros). Fondant au chocolat – like a Gü, melted brownie (4’80 euros). This choc pudding, though not the fanciest, was the tastiest of the whole trip for me.
• Decor was fairly functional but also cosy, cottagey and warm.
