A terrific Face du Charvet on Gill's Birthday!

12 April 2014

We didn’t get quite as good of re-freeze last night but it was still cold enough for us to enjoy another quality morning of spring snow. I had two new ‘Alpine’ skiers this morning, Maureen and her husband John, and along with Jean R, Quentin and my lovely wife Gill on her birthday, and we had a brilliant birthday ski. Henry and I started on the Face du Charvet, (which is always a good place to test out new skiers!) and it was excellent top-to-bottom and as atmospheric as always. Henry then went off to ski the Kern while my team skied a great run out towards the Cabin de la Garde, followed by the L and Familial to finish off. It was fantastic to have Jean back in the saddle and he loved his return and seems pretty confident with his knee.

Chris skied Mont Roup before finishing off with Henry around the Arcelle while Andreas and Ian, and Thomas with Martin’s family, all had a wonderful morning skiing Tignes ‘classics’.

It clouded over during the afternoon and we may see a few flakes but sunshine is forecast again for the morning. Hopefully we’ll get a good freeze first so we can continue this lovely run of spring snow skiing.

And Happy Birthday Gill!!!

PS Actually the forecast for tomorrow is crap!!!!
