Good light a great snow!

04 March 2015

After yesterday’s beautiful sunshine it was back to ‘whiter’ conditions today but it did snow 10cm’s or so overnight and the skiing was excellent. The forecast is for windier conditions again tomorrow so Henry and I decided to take the opportunity to ski at the Fornet. We skied the Combe du Signal en route to the Pissaillas where we were lucky with the light and profited from really good visibility (for a cloudy day). (See photos) My team skied the 3300, and then two lovely runs in the Pays Desert, where we met Henry’s team on our second time around. Besides Henry there was no one else about and it was nice to have the place to ourselves. We had planned on going over the Col but changed our minds as we had both good light and snow and didn’t want to risk dropping into a fog lower down. It was just as well because around 12:30 the vis disappeared, the wind picked up and it started snowing.

The rest of the boys headed to Tignes and I’m not too sure what all they skied. Andreas tried to tell me on the radio but there was so much static I couldn’t make it out.

A brighter day is forecast for tomorrow along with 100kph winds, which sounds like a tough morning but at least it’s snowing at the moment (2:30PM) Stay tuned!
