Great scenery, better company, and pretty decent skiing!

19 March 2014

I was greeted by cloudy skies this morning when opening the curtains but thank goodness the sky was blue by the time we got going. It was warm overnight and although it was cold enough at altitude the re-freeze was fairly non-existent down low, which cut out most of what little options we have left. Being Emmett’s last day I decided on a change of scenery, as did Andreas and Chris, so we took a chance and headed towards the Fornet. I must admit to not being very confident about snow conditions Fornet-way but we went anyway, and although it’s pretty rough to say the least we did manage a pretty good morning. I ended up doing a slope I’ve never noticed before in excellent spring snow before a little ‘skin’ out, and then I went over the Col towards the Lechoir where I met Andreas and his team on their way down from the Glacier Pers. We were the only ones out there and the ski down from the Grand Torsai was better than expected, and that’s always a bonus! Meanwhile, Chris headed to the Col des Fours to ski the spring-side and I’m not too sure what Thomas skied but I think he went towards Tignes.

More sun is forecast for tomorrow before a change of weather starting on Friday. We’d better make the most of it then!
