A cracking morning over the Col Pers!

17 December 2014

After yesterday’s white-out conditions we were all chomping at the bit this morning as the vis promised to be good enough to travel. Chris, Andreas and I all headed up to the Fornet and dove straight over the Col Pers, which had filled in nicely with 10cm’s of fresh snow, giving us great skiing right from the top. We then ‘skinned’ towards the Grand Vallon while Andreas skied a few pitches in the Vallonnet en-route. The Grand Vallon had improved with the fresh snow although you still need to pick your way carefully due to the rocks lurking under the surface. I skied to the bottom to check it out and we only needed to take our skis off a couple of times, while Andreas went back up and ‘booted’ it up under the bubble lift for some good bonus turns, and I’m not too sure where Chris ended up.

JM and Olivier went off with their touring teams and I don’t know what their plans were, but they definitely had better light to work with than yesterday.

It closed in by 1PM and it is now snowing lightly (2:15) and we should get enough to make a difference, at least in the short term, and fingers crossed for a more significant snowfall!

I’m now about to tidy up as Gill and the girls arrive on Sunday evening. Yahoo!
