What a brilliant Sachette!

27 February 2016

With a strong Foehn wind blowing and thick cloud towards the Fornet we all headed for shelter and better light in Tignes. Thomas, Andreas and I all skied the Little Lavachet, which was very good indeed, before ‘skinning’ out followed by a brilliant Sachette through the Sachette Couloir. The upper 80% had fantastic snow before the snow started to thicken due to the wind, but we still found strips of snow that skied nicely. We definitely had the best of the light as well as the rest of the resort seemed quite dark. Nice one boys, it was a great morning! (see photos)

We should see some snow by tomorrow morning and a big dump is expected up towards the Italian border. Fingers crossed on that one!

I must keep it short as I’ve some cleaning to do next door followed by an afternoon of sport. It’s a big day in the Premiership as well as the 6 Nations, so take your pick unless of course you’re watching it all! Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!
