An adventurous Sache!

14 January 2015

Last night’s forecast wasn’t very inspiring and it was a pleasant surprise to open the curtains to 10cm’s or so of fresh snow this morning. In places the accumulation was much more and it made for an excellent morning of skiing. Thomas and I decided on the Sache to shelter ourselves from the wind and we headed that way via a very promising and soft Lower Borsat. It was blowing a hoolie on top of the Aiguille Percee and the entrance was going to be interesting to say the least. Fortunately a dangerous amount of snow didn’t drift in with the wind and we could safely and comfortably ski the first gulley before spreading ourselves out further down. The ambience was terrific and the snow was fantastic top-to-bottom, making for a cracking and satisfying decent. It was another case of low expectations followed by a great result.

Chris was off ill today with a chest infection while Andreas spent his day helping out at Ness’ birthday party. I bet that was fun! Stuart-the-Sea-Captain is in a soft cast as he partially tore his Achilles tendon and is out for the foreseeable future, and I’d like to say a big hello to Babette who broke her leg badly in early December.

And it was a great win for the Hammers last night, even if it took awhile!
