Another 10 to 15 centimetres fell last night and as we left the Gourmadine the skies started to clear, giving us another morning of good light. Chris had a new group and skied in Tignes around the Motte where he witnessed a guided group setting off a good sized plaque off the Leisse. Andreas and I went up to the Fornet for a change of pace and after testing the snow in the Combe du Signal realised that the best snow was on the flatter slopes, and we then had great skiing in the Pays Desert and Col Pers. We were the first over the Col, which always adds to the ambience when you see a trackless expanse of virgin snow before you. TJ arrives tonight and I wouldn’t be surprised if he shows up at the Rond Point tomorrow to greet everyone as we head off on another adventure. It snowed lightly this afternoon and hopefully our luck will continue with another morning of decent visibility tomorrow. What a rubbish football match last night! I can’t believe another high-priced manager thinks Wayne Rooney up front on his own is a winning formula. England played like a team that didn’t qualify for next summers party because they don’t really deserve to be there. Dreadful!
