Great snow quality today!

27 January 2014

It snowed again overnight and although there were gusts of wind recorded at 65kph, the snow quality today was stunning. Even the snow that was winded and compressed skied easily and all the teams had a fabulous morning. Andreas has a theory about wearing goggles if you want the sun to come out, so we gave it a try and blimey, after skiing a couple of runs in flat-light the sun came out for the rest of the morning!

It was a maximum-turn session up until 11 o’clock when technical problems shut a couple of lifts down, but we made the most of it and covered a huge amount of ground during the morning. My team opened with a clean run down the Face de Bellevarde, which is a jolly long way top-to-bottom, and it was excellent. Chris and Andreas were the first into the Familial for a great run and Andreas ended up heading to Tignes for a beautiful Chardonnet, while Thomas was entertaining a group of boarders around the Super S and Arcelle.

Just when I thought it was clearing up for a cracking good afternoon the clouds rolled back in and Tom, Adam and I were left to ski in flat-light. We did our best and had a good outing while Thomas was boarding all-day with his group.

We should get a little more snow overnight and the forecast is for partially cloudy skies tomorrow, which means partially sunny! Fingers crossed!
