The snow arrived and 25 to 30 cm's fell overnight

05 December 2008

The snow arrived and 25 to 30 cm’s fell overnight but unfortunately is was accompanied by wind. Very little open during the day and our only option was the Solaise Express, and the snow on piste was deep and pretty tricky to say the least. Instead of one run we did two as I needed to return to pick up my pole that I left dangling on the top of a three or four metre drop, but it could have been worse. Once up Bellevarde the skiing was much better but it would have been easier without the flat-light and wind. It started to brighten towards the end of the morning and we finished off with a couple of excellent runs down the Combe at the bottom of the Familial and all in all it was a very good morning. We had a very good ‘drinks’ session at the Blue Note, with Gillian and Robert finishing a great week and Derek, Paul W, and Penny just arriving. Derek is rather pleased with himself as he’s developing a reputation as being an early season ‘snow god’. Good on you Derek! I’m off to bed now as fatigue and beer is catching up with me. A demain!
