Blimey Katie!

12 February 2015

I thought I’d mix it up a little today and decided to ski around the Motte. We had a cracking warm-up in fantastic snow while waiting for the Borsat to open (see photos), then skied a decent Lower Borsat into Val Claret. Next up was the Rosolin, which got better and better the lower we skied and the ‘skin’ out is always stunning with the Motte and Grande Casse in the background, and we then skied some nice bonus turns across the glacier. Then it was on to my shoulder, which was chalky and good skiing, en-route to the Little Borsat West, which needed some ‘sniffing’ to get the best out of it. We finished off playing around and finding some great snow in the Upper Familial before skiing the Alti-port.

Meanwhile, Chris and Andreas ‘skinned’ to the Glacier Pers and had a lovely outing with good snow and outstanding scenery, while Thomas skied the Crete du Genepy and Mont Roup. Henry was also in action today and did a nice little tour in the Pays Desert in excellent snow.

Sports Report-It was a fantastic point for the Hammers away to Southampton last night as they played the last 35 minutes with ten-men and then finished the game with nine-and-a-half men as Andy Carroll was injured and just hobbled about trying to be a nuisance. Well done boys! I must admit to being a little embarrassed by not knowing that the Alpine Skiing World Championships have been on for the last week or so in Beaver Creek. And I call myself a Sports Journalist!

More sun is forecast for tomorrow before a much needed snowfall on Saturday. Fingers crossed!

PS Late Breaking News- Gill and I went to watch Katie’s Chamois Race this afternoon and she’s done it again, winning herself another Silver Medal. The first was in a GS a couple of days ago and today’s race was a Slalom. She’s so pleased with herself and Gill and I are really proud of her. Bravo Katie!
