Another fantastic morning out of nothing!

14 March 2015

We weren’t expecting too much today but the forecast was wrong again and we ended up with another beautiful morning and a terrific ski. Being Saturday I started off with a couple of hard runs on the piste while waiting for Tommeuses to open, and the pistes were absolutely brilliant! (Gill said she and Laura had their best piste skiing of the season) Chris and Andreas were ahead of me and heading to the Lower Lavachet for some winter snow before ‘skinning’ out at the bottom so instead of over-crowding the sector I headed straight into Tignes to start on the spring slopes. We had a funky run off the Palafour through the Para-avalanche and rocks before skiing two excellent runs on the Tourne. Andreas and Chris arrived for one on the Tourne before we all headed to the Sachette, which was lovely winter snow followed by spring snow at the bottom. It was a ‘maximum-turn’ type of morning with some great spring snow mixed with a few powder turns, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I then left my team of Adrian, AL, Ian, Frans, Derek, Paul and Emmett (what a first morning Emmett) as they were heading down into Les Brevieres for lunch at the Sachette. Bon app boys!

It was my team’s last morning after a fantastic week and Andreas’ Norwegian team of Olav, Anja, Cato, Line, along with Kari and Derek, also had a fabulous week and we look forward to seeing them all again same time next season. And good luck to the Rangers Olav! Bravo again to all the boys for working hard this week and putting on a really good show!

Maybe we’ll get some snow tonight but no one is counting on it. Stay tuned and come on you Hammers!

PS I forgot to mention my ‘Berk of the Morning’ award for starting to ski a steep pitch while still having one ‘skin’ on. I thought my skis felt a little sticky! Thanks for the photo Frans.

PSS What an afternoon of rugby!
