The first impression this morning was one that made you want to stay in bed

26 December 2008

The first impression this morning was one that made you want to stay in bed. It was grey and the wind was howling with temperatures of -17C at the summit of Bellevarde. Fortunately the skies cleared and we could see, which helped us deal with 80kph winds and the coldest day of the season. I expected some snow to have blown in here and there but with a very limited opening there really wasn’t much to do off-piste this morning. We tried a few sorties but spent most of the morning skiing superbly groomed pistes. The forecast is for clear and cold weather tomorrow with the wind abating somewhat. I’m now off to tidy up before heading to Lyon to pick up the girls.
