Another lovely morning at the Fornet!

23 February 2015

I awoke around 5AM to a clear sky and shining stars, but by show-time the skies were overcast and we were looking at a flat-light day. Andreas, Thomas and I all headed towards the Fornet as it was so good yesterday and a little brighter towards the border, and we were rewarded with some fantastic skiing. The light was flat in the Pays Desert so I headed over the Col and ‘skinned’ for 15-minutes to the Lechoir, where the snow was trackless with a beautiful quality and we had the added bonus of being totally alone. (See photos) We skied down as far possible before cutting out and the vis was pretty good for a grey day, which was greatly appreciated. Meanwhile Andreas and Thomas had great skiing in the Col Pers before heading back up to ski the Pays Desert while Chris had the day off.

The girls are back at school after a superb half-term. The first week they skied with their Club des Sport teams in beautiful sunshine, with Katie picking up two Silver Medals in her races (Millie’s group was boarding!), and the second week they had their cousins here for a fantastic week of skiing, lunching, off-piste skiing, après –ski, dining out, and the odd session in a bar. It really was brilliant fun!

At 2:40PM it’s snowing huge flakes and the forecast is for on-and-off snow for the next few days. Bring it on and let’s hope the wind doesn’t spoil the snowfall!
