Excellent spring skiing on steep terrain!

11 March 2015

A cloudy day was forecast but it was much better than that with only a sea-of-cloud lower down that burnt off fairly quickly, giving way to another beautiful day. I headed to the Motte with Andreas to ski the Couloir 3500 but decided against it and ended up spending the morning working on technique for the steep off the Motte with some lovely spring snow. (See photos) Andreas did ski the 3500 with his team and they had a fantastic run down followed by a one-hour-35-minute ‘skin’ out. Bravo and well done Anja! Meanwhile Chris skied the Little Lavachet and Sachette while Thomas ‘skinned’ to the Col de la Barmes des L’Ours and Henry skied Mont Roup. It was another really good day on the mountain and all the teams came home happy!

More sun is forecast over the next two days before some fresh snow on Saturday. Fingers crossed!

PS Thanks to Kari who has taken Millie and Katie to the Folie Douce this afternoon. Sounds like scary fun to me!
