What a day! The extra cushion of overnight snow made all the difference

02 December 2008

What a day! The extra cushion of overnight snow made all the difference, combined with sunshine and my buoyant mood after West Ham’s excellent point away to Liverpool. It was our first ‘maximum-turn’ session of the season and we were totally on our own as the resort is empty. The sunshine was welcome after yesterday’s ‘head-plant’ in the flat-light and the snow today was of a totally different quality. As usual it was wonderful to look around the mountain and see our ‘signature’ standing out in trackless areas. It’s Red Ray’s first time ever skiing at this time of year, and along with John, Margaret, and Robert it was a morning to savour. The weather forecast is a little on-and-off for the rest of the week so hopefully we’ll get some visibility again tomorrow.
