Well, it didn't snow 30 cm's

01 May 2008

Well, it didn’t snow 30 cm’s but we had between 10 and 15 cm’s and a fabulous ski up at the Fornet. Between us we skied off the Laisinant, the Combe du Signal, the Grand Vallon, the big slopes between the Grand Vallon and the Vallonet, the Combe du 3300, the Pays Desert, the Col Pers, the Spatule, and the Familial. Not too bad a morning! Hopefully it will stay sunny for the next few days and freeze at night and I’ll be a happy man. Chris finished today and will now do a bit of touring with Suzanne while Andreas finishes his season tomorrow, and I’m skiing until the end of the season, which is only three skis away. It has been a stunning season and even though the end is near and I’m ready for it, I’m going to miss it. Sadly there has been an accident involving a group of six tourers near the Pointe Basei on the French Italian border only a few kilometers from the Fornet sector of Val d’Isere.The accident happened on the last day of April.

Sports Report- What a tense match last night as Chelsea set up a great showdown with United in Moscow on May 21st. And what a final two matches of the Premiership with the title on the line, the relegation scrap far from over, and a battle for European places going on as well. Brilliant!
