A change in wind direction but still great skiing!

12 February 2014

The sun was out again this morning and everyone was jolly relieved as the flat-light days of late have been hard work. Unfortunately the wind blew from the north last night, just enough to damage some beautiful snow, but there was still some great snow on certain exposures and all the boys had an excellent morning. Chris and I skied the Borsat and Sachette before finishing with the Familial and I snuck in a sneaky one near the par-avalanche en route to La Toviere.

Meanwhile TJ ‘skinned’ to Mont Roup for a lovely outing, Andreas started in Les Brevieres with a new Swedish family and skied the Chardonnet, Sachette and the Cocaine Sud, and Henry was in Tignes with Barbara and Wynne. Andreas’ team thought it was the best day they’ve ever had skiing so that was a good result!

Gill, Millie and I skied with Russell this afternoon and skied some nice soft off-piste but needed to blend in some bullet-proof piste for Millie’s benefit. Katie spent the day in Tignes at a Boarder-Cross competition with around 10 different teams and their Val d’Isere team came second, which she was rather pleased with!

I must say West Ham’s third win in a row last night was a huge relief and thank goodness the Hammer’s owners kept the faith with Big Sam, who has not only really delivered over the past 6 games, but during his entire career.

I must say the forecast isn’t great for tomorrow but fingers crossed it isn’t too nasty!
