On the road again!

09 April 2015

Our trip to St Foy was cancelled as there is an hour walk out at the bottom due to lack of snow and I need to leave early to get the girls to the airport. Due to the delays because of the rock fall outside of Moutiers I’ll ski spring snow in Val d’Isere this morning and stop around noon and then leave for the airport around 12:30.

Poor Katie took a massive jump yesterday and injured her heel and Gill needed to drive around to Tignes to pick her up as she couldn’t ski. Thanks Laura for staying with her and also for a great ‘ good-bye’ dinner last night.

Thanks also to Simon for his supportive email and stay tuned for more news on Friday.

PS The road re-opened allowing me to have a full and stunning morning of spring skiing on big slopes. Thomas and I skied the Banane into the Super Santon, and then the Borsat Sud before hiking up the Charvet ridge to ski from the top down through the Mont Blanc Couloir. We then skied the ‘L’ before skiing the Super Santon from the Fontaine Froide, then some winter snow off the Mont Blanc piste and the Familial to finish a brilliant morning. Derek’s heli-skiing mate Walter, who’s from Houston, Texas loved his first off-piste experience in Val d’Isere. Meanwhile Chris had an excellent Mont Roup. (See photos)

I drove the girls and Ray down to Lyon and made it back by 7:20PM, which is a massive relief because this morning I thought it would take until midnight with the road closures.
