Great skiing at the Fornet!

07 January 2014

After yesterday’s heat it was time to leave the sunny slopes in Tignes alone so we all headed up to the Fornet for a surprisingly good ski. Chris and I stayed on the Glacier where the snow was much better than it looked and my team skied the Pays Desert followed by a Combe 3300 from the top of the T-Bar, then the sunny slope from the Col back down to the poma, which was predictably warm but jolly good anyway. Meanwhile, Andreas and Thomas both dove straight over the Col then came back up for a run in the Grand Vallon, and they both had excellent skiing as well. (See photos and check our Facebook page)

Derek was well impressed with his brother Adrian’s skiing this morning as it was the first time they’ve skied together in years. Nothing like a little brotherly love and competitive spirit to spruce things up. Well skied boys!

It was forecast to be sunny but we did have a little cloud cover from time to time, but it was a very pleasant day on the weather front, especially when you see what’s going on in England, which is quite incredible! Gill and I sat on the terrace and enjoyed our lunch under brilliant sunshine, and Gill thought it was warm enough for shorts. It was blissful although we could use some snow, but sun is forecast for the next few days.
