Desperate Dan!

03 December 2015

The sun was beating down again today and we enjoyed another stunning day with clear blue skies and extremely warm temperatures. It was warm enough to eat lunch outside, which is a real pleasure at this time of year, and we all shed layers while skiing.

It was great to see Thomas for the first time this season at the Gourmandine as he and Andreas were going out on a little reconnaissance mission together. He’s in good spirits and is looking forward to the season and will be joining Jean Marc and Olivier next week as they entertain the Ski Club of Great Britain. Pietro was also there this morning as he finished his four mornings with Maeve and Adrian.

I headed out towards Tignes with Jean, Richard and Margaret and after skiing some immaculate pistes I took them out for a little adventure. Times are tough at the moment so we made it up as we went along and ended up doing a funky little tour across from the Palafour to the Aiguille Rouge Chair. From there we skied some lovely frisset and goblet off the edge of the piste before ‘skinning’ back out for 20-minutes. The Aiguille Percee sector down to Les Brevieres is still closed and there are some nice slopes of protected snow, but it’s a bit of a pain to get in and out. It was Desperate Dan stuff but good fun!

It looks as though we’re in for sunshine until next Wednesday when some snow is possible. Fingers crossed on that one but in the meantime we’ll enjoy the glorious blue skies.
