A change of pace!

13 December 2014

After two weeks at the Fornet I thought it was time for a change of pace and to have a look at what the rest of the mountain had to offer, and we managed a jolly good morning around Bellevarde. We played around on the meadows off the Verte, the Borsat traverse, and the Jardin du Borsat, and lucked out having first shot under the Tommeuses chair. I had the pleasure of having Oliver, his wife Emily and their friend Sanil along with Jean and Michael, and Emily picked up a ‘most improved skier’ award this morning as she worked hard and really applied herself. Bravo Emily! (Oliver is Bridget’s God son and was taught by Gilles)

Meanwhile Andreas was about with some Vikings and they skied around Bellevarde as well and had a go in the Campanules, which was a good result. Well done boys! Andreas has a friend from Sweden here for a visit and the two of them had a great ski this afternoon.

I’d like to say well done to Pam who has skied with me the past two afternoons. She’s only skied three weeks and she’s working hard so that she can go touring with JM, Oli and her friends, and she’s made some solid progress!

It warmed up considerably today, so much so that I had my lunch outside on the terrace. Hopefully we’ll get a little snow but I’m not very positive on that front, but if it doesn’t snow I’d love to have enough visibility to enjoy what good snow we have left. Seriously flat light would put a real damper on our skiing. Stay tuned and wish us luck!
