Truly outstanding!

06 February 2015

An unexpected 20cm’s of beautiful snow fell overnight in the village, with much more towards the Fornet, but unfortunately the resort was incredibly slow in opening and we all played a guessing game as to what would open first. We finally got going around 9:40 and all was forgiven pretty quickly as we had one of the best ‘maximum-turn’ sessions of the season. The quality was excellent and for the most part we were out of the wind and enjoying good visibility. Andreas and I skied together and started off first into the Fontaine Froide, followed by a play off the Verte, then under the Mont Blanc chair, a funky Familial, off the Verte again, then the Lower Borsat and meadows into Val Claret, (Andreas then headed home via the Familial as Ian had a plane to catch), then a Combe des Lanches, a Campanules and then another funky Familial to finish. Wow, it was really quite outstanding morning of non-stop skiing!

Meanwhile Chris headed up Solaise for a superb opener, saying he’s never skied a better Solaise. He then skied around the Laisinant and I’m not too sure where Thomas and Henry ended up. It was TJ’s last day and he finished off in grand style with his Belgian team. TJ has had a fantastic three weeks but it’s time for him to head home to Scotland.

At 3:30PM the skies are clearing towards Tignes but it’s still socked-in at the Fornet and probably still snowing, but sun is forecast for the next week. Stay tuned!
