tigerwife.jpg Tiger Woods' estranged wife Elin Nordegren has left her adulterous hubby behind and gone to the French ski resort Chamonix, where she is staying in a $10,000 a night chalet with her twin sister and five close pals.

According to The Sun, the group is being accompanied by a hired French security team and their chalet is advertised as "the most luxurious in the entire valley and boasts seven bedrooms, a hot tub and a full staff including a chef."

A family friend told The Sun, "Elin wanted to take her family and close friends away from the minefield Tiger has created by his behavior. She has been absolutely torn to pieces by what he has done to her. But she still sees a future with Tiger because of the beautiful children they have. She told him she needed a lengthy time apart to reflect on how they might possibly salvage the marriage."
