A change of scenery!

02 December 2016

It was another beautiful day and even though we need snow as there are tracks everywhere, we enjoyed some great skiing with brilliant sunshine and the resort to ourselves. Andreas was back in action with Derek, Peter, Paul and Jerry while I was skiing with Penny, Richard H, Tim, and Jean on his first day of his season. After a couple of consecutive days at the Fornet it was time for a change of scenery and to have a ‘sniff’ about to see what else was on offer. We started off on Bellevarde and made our way to the Grande Motte and back and had some lovely skiing off the Borsat meadows, the lower Borsat Nord, off my shoulder and a little ‘skin’ to the Little Borsat West. The snow making has done the trick and the skiing into Tignes is well covered and I would imagine that many other runs to the bottom will be open for the weekend.

Thanks to Paul Gains who came up with a suggestion for a service provider for my daily photos updates. I’ll look into it and hopefully have a new system in place soon. In the meantime there will just be ‘Photos of the Day’ and no monthly file that the photos would normally be moved into.

There are Men’s World Cup races here this weekend and today there was a downhill, which we totally missed as I thought today was training and the race was tomorrow. Mind you we would have still missed it as we had our own skiing to deal with! Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!

PS Peter’s morning was cut short when he pulled his toe-piece out of his ski. Bummer Peter but as least you weren’t on a do-or-die slope! And I haven’t yet received my new French SIM card so my French mobile isn’t working.
