Blue skies and powder snow!

29 April 2016

The sun was shining brightly today, which was already a winner, and I decided that the big spring slopes weren’t ready due to the unseasonably cold temperatures over the past few days and opted for powder instead. We headed up to the Fornet and dove over the Col Pers to ski a great warm-up pitch before ‘skinning’ to the Lechoir. (See photos) From the Lechoir we ‘skinned’ again to the Glacier Pers, which was excellent top-to-bottom, especially for this time of year. We skied the funky exit from the Torsai, which was very good until we reached the last two slopes above the Pont St Charles. As usual they were a little scratchy but we made it down pretty comfortably to finish off a very pleasant morning.

Peter and Paul took themselves off to ski the Couloir des Pisteurs before settling in for lunch and hopefully they had a great run.

I’m busy packing and cleaning and trying not to forget anything and I did forget Thomas’ birthday yesterday. It turned out to be Paul W’s birthday as well so Happy Belated Birthday to both Thomas and Paul!

Thanks for another great meal last night Dave and the company was terrific as well.

Hopefully we’ll get some sun to kick-start the morning tomorrow but it’s forecast to come in by 11-ish and snow in the afternoon. Stay tuned!

PS All we’re missing is Derek who is missing the closing weekend for the first time ever due to family commitments. We’re thinking of you Derek!
