What a cracking good morning!

30 December 2013

Meteo France bumped the avalanche risk up to 4/5 today, which seems a little extreme but there has been a lot of activity from the Arcelle through the Lavachet and into Tignes. Chris, Henry and I decided to head back to the Fornet with new teams and had some great skiing in the Pays Desert aided by a short ‘skin’ and I finished off with a trip over the Col Pers. Ray took the girls skiing so Gill could come for her first trip off-piste this season, which she greatly appreciated, thanks Ray!

Meanwhile the rest of the team headed towards Tignes for some excellent skiing and had a run in the Chardonnet, the Sache and then the Familial to finish. The boys reported signs of avalanche activity over the past couple of days and with six deaths in surrounding resorts the warning signs are definitely there.

Dave and Sue have arrived and are staying for a month in Johnny Alpine’s apartment. They’re really excited about their holiday and enjoyed a stunning first morning, and are hoping for more of the same!

After a beautifully sunny day today, sun is forecast for tomorrow morning with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon, heading towards some snow on Thursday. Sounds good!

And thanks for the drinks last night John!

PS And what dreadful news about Michael Schumacher off-piste accident!
