15 December 2008

It snowed 105cm’s overnight and continued through most of the day. The road to the Fornet has been closed all-day after an avalanche across the road and Chris has been snowed in at the Laisinant. I haven’t seen this much snow in many a year and it has been rather spectacular. Unfortunately the lifts were closed all-day as the pisteurs main priority has been securing the village. More snow is forecast tonight so who knows what tomorrow will bring? Andreas says it was sunny today in Bourg, which just shows how important this micro-climate we have up against the Italian border is, giving us the most reliable snow record in Europe. Thanks to all you Man U fans and Jimmy Thomas for e-mailing their congratulations and thanks for the Hammers excellent 1-1 draw with Chelsea yesterday. And a great win for the Steelers as well!
