Another excellent outing at the Fornet!

18 March 2016

The sun was shining again this morning and it was a ‘no-brainer’ as far as what direction to travel so the entire team of Chris, Thomas, Henry and I all headed up to the Fornet. (Andreas was off today with a funny-tummy but should be back tomorrow) Chris and I headed into the Glacier Pers and had a jolly good ‘skin’ and ski. (See photos) Thomas was skiing out wide in the Pays Desert followed by the Col Pers and Henry ended up skiing the Glacier Pers as well. It was another very good morning but the easy pickings at the Fornet have been tracked out and it’s going to get tougher again for a few days as we await some more snow. This last snowfall only benefited the Fornet as the rest of the resort received no new snow at all.

I had a lovely evening at home last night all by myself after a busy social period. I cooked myself a steak with garlic bread, fried mushrooms, onions, courgette and peppers with a little salad. Of course I washed it down with a little Guigal Cotes du Rhones and then watched Man U v Liverpool on French TV. What a great evening!

Andreas has a rehearsal with Ness this afternoon as Ness is preparing for a singing audition to get into a special class at school. Andreas is accompanying her on his guitar and he’s really looking forward to it. What a brilliant daddy-daughter moment! Good luck you two!

Another sunny day is forecast for tomorrow and we’ll need to soldier on until Tuesday when we may have a chance of some fresh snow. Fingers crossed on that one! Stay tuned for more news tomorrow.
