Grey skies with flat light and drizzle, but blimey!!!!

25 April 2015

It was +6C in the village this morning with overcast skies and a light drizzle, and with no direct sun getting through, Chris and I needed to ski somewhere that was perfectly ‘clean’ and high. The only place in the resort to fit the bill was off the Rosolin on the Motte and our teams enjoyed a fantastic morning skiing a perfectly smooth spring base with about 5cm’s of fresh snow on top. After 135-turns we ‘skinned’ out for 10 minutes to ski some lovely bonus turns across the glacier, and it was all so good we circled back around for another trip. We thought about a Familial on the way home but there wasn’t any support underfoot so we skied dynamically on the pistes, which were superb. It was a very satisfying morning, especially since it was the first day of grey skies after such a stunning run of sunshine, and the skiing was excellent! (See photos)

We’re expecting up to 30cm’s of fresh snow over the next couple of days and for the moment it’s just Chris, Suzanne, Paul G and I, so jump on a plane if you’ve got the time! Stay tuned.
