That was brilliant!

20 January 2016

Wow, what a morning! We had enough light to head up to the Fornet to find some fantastic skiing with wonderful ambience. After a nice warm-up off the Laisinant we skied a great Lower Combe du Signal before Chris, Andreas and I all dove over the Col Pers. It was so nice to be back out there again and we had excellent conditions most of the way, although we needed to mess around a bit at the bottom due to rocks. Blimey, three metres of snow and there’s very little snow below the Grand Torsai! Still, it was a great trip and for some it was their first trip over the Col, which is always special. From there we circled back up and profited from the opening of the Signal Poma and skied a couple of stunning runs in the Combe du Signal. (See photos)

Thomas had a private today with a family and with a couple of them on boards I’m not too sure where he took his clients. TJ was skiing with Joanna and pals and I’m not too sure what Henry was up to today.

Thanks to Laura and Mike for hosting a fabulous dinner/reunion last night! The cast of characters stretched back 35-years and included TJ, Joanna, Delores and Jeff, Roddie Finlay and Sarah, Charlie and Stephanie, Russell, myself and of course Mike and Laura. Joanna opened the party with an outrageous quote from me that went back 25 to 30 years, and from then on it was game on! I only meant to stop by for a drink and to say hello but ended up going the distance as it was way too much fun! Thanks again!

Sunshine is forecast for tomorrow and we’ll be walking again before we know it. The last time used my ‘skins’ was 19-days ago! Stay tuned!
