A little bit of sunshine lights the way!

25 March 2016

The forecast was for a cloud and flat-light morning and it certainly looked that way as Thomas, Chris and I headed to the Fornet to ski the Glacier Pers, but once we arrived at the Col Pers the sun popped out and we had pretty good visibility until noon. The sun was a real bonus and made the morning much more enjoyable and helped us to ‘sniff’ out the best snow, and it was another case of ‘better than anticipated’, which always goes down well. Meanwhile Andreas headed to Tignes to ski the steep with Henry and Alex Nelson while Henry was out there somewhere!

I had a good afternoon with Tim while Chris was skiing with Alex and we skied the Borsat Nord from the top together. It was blowing a hoolie and the light was pretty flat to say the least, but it was a good adventure and the little cushion of snow helped.

I write two blogs a week for ValdiNet, one on Monday and the other for Friday so log on if you want to have a look.

Sunshine is forecast for tomorrow and hopefully the light snow that is falling will continue into the night ahead. Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!

PS Andrew came by to say hello at the Gourmandine this morning and was on crutches as he did his knee getting off a chair. What a bummer! It was great to ski with you and William again and I look forward to seeing you both again next season. We all wish you a speedy and full recovery!
