Millie skiing in Daddy's group for the first time!

22 February 2015

We finally received a little snow, which made a massive difference and we enjoyed a stunning day with a mix of in-and-out light lower down and clear blue skies at altitude. Katie was down in Les Arcs for a Club des Sport race so I decided to take the opportunity and bring Millie along with my group this morning for the first time. We headed up to the Fornet for some fabulous skiing and Millie didn’t let the side down, in fact she skied like a seasoned pro, much to her Mum’s delight. (And mine too for that matter!) Jean R and Chrissy were also along and we started off with some great snow off the Laisinant Express (See photos), followed by an excellent run from the top of the Combe du Signal. We then had a run in the Pays Desert but it was evident that the deepest snow was lower down so we dove over the Col Pers just behind Chris for a terrific ski, and with the bonus of powder from the Grand Torsai to the bottom. Chrissy and I then went up to finish off a great morning in the Grand Vallon, where we managed to find clean snow all the way. It was a real treat for Gill and I to have Millie along, and she absolutely loved it!

Meanwhile, Chris and Suzanne were skiing with a new client Gary, who was skiing on a pair of slalom skis that measured 73mm’s under the foot. Bravo Gary, you’re my kind of guy! By the look of Chris’ team’s tracks Gary wasn’t having any problems on his skinny skis.

West Ham gave up an equaliser with the last kick of the game in the 97th minute away to Tottenham, but as Millie said, “At least they didn’t lose!” I was gutted but would have gladly taken a point before kick-off.

I’ll report again later when I hear about how Katie’s team did down the valley. Stay tuned!
