Another low-expectation-but-good result day!

03 February 2016

The snow didn’t start to fall until around 8AM and with flat-light and a punchy wind we weren’t really expecting too much this morning, but as is usually the case we were all pleasantly surprised and had a cracking good morning. The fresh snow ate into the crust turning slopes that were either unskiable or tricky into viable options and with many lifts closing down as the day progressed having a few options made all the difference.

I was out with Trevor and his friends Waz and Tom in the afternoon for an initiation off-piste session, and what an afternoon to start! The light was flat, the wind was howling and the boys did really well. Eventually the mountain shut down on us and we finished up being the last skiers on the mountain as we did technique on empty pistes on the way down. It was a great afternoon in tough conditions and well done boys! (See photos)

Thanks to Johnny ‘Alpine’ for a fantastic meal last night followed by the West Ham match. The Hammers were dreadful in the first-half and rode their luck a little bit, but they really punished Villa in the second-half who were playing with ten men.

I had a technical problem with my camera this morning so haven’t posted any morning ski shot but have posted a few afternoon shots to give you an idea of the weather this afternoon. Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!
