Millie and Katie's first Col Pers!

19 February 2015

Blimey, what an absolutely stunning day that was! Chris and my teams had a wonderful morning in the Glaciers Pers with lovely snow top-to-bottom, great ambience and the added bonus of no one else in the neighbourhood. Then it was a picnic on the Col with friends and family before taking Millie, Katie, Viv, Rosie and the girls step-cousins Tim and Sam, along with my assistant Wils over the Col Pers. Besides Wils, it was everyone’s first time over the Col and it was Rosie, Viv, Tim and Sam’s first- ever off-piste period! They all did amazingly well and were leaving ‘Alpine’ tracks by the end of the second pitch, and I was really proud of all of them. (See photos) It was a special occasion taking them all over the Col for the first time and I received a nice smile from a Pisteur who wasn’t expecting to see such small children coming out at the bottom!

This morning Andreas had a brilliant ski in the Col Des Fours, which has been excellent so far this season. Bravo to Andreas and his team who were deservedly rewarded for their efforts! Thomas has been doing some great skiing as well although his team don’t have ‘skins’ so Thomas has been working hard finding good snow without the help of a little walk or two. Well done Thomas!

We’ve another day of sunshine to enjoy tomorrow before some snow is forecast over the weekend and into next week. After such a stunning week of weather combined with the busiest week of the season, snow is exactly what we need. Stay tuned!
