A wonderful morning with great vis!

12 January 2015

After skiing in some pretty tough conditions over the past two days it was wonderful to have the sun shining again. It was still windy and it was amazing how icy it was high up the mountain after the rain and wet snow of the past two days had re-frozen after a much colder night. The goal today was to find protected gullies and the lee-side of shoulders where there were lovely strips of soft snow blown in, and it was a cracking morning bordering on ‘maximum turns’. My team warmed up off the Verte before skiing the Upper Familial, the Campanules, two off the Motte, the meadows under the Balme, and the Familial to finish.

Chris was in the neighbourhood but we never crossed paths until the Familial while Andreas skied the Upper Familial, Chardonnet, Sache, and Familial. Henry was doing a ‘HAT’ day and Thomas is back in action tomorrow.

A great day was enjoyed by all and sun is forecast again for tomorrow before more snow on Wednesday. Fingers crossed that the wind dies down so we can have a look around further afield as we’ve been pinned down a little these past few days. Stay tuned!

I’ve lost my mobile so if you’ve been trying to contact me and I haven’t answered it’s because I’m a berk and not rude!
