A lovely return to Tignes!

11 December 2016

With the Aiguille Percee sector opening yesterday it was time for a change of scenery so I headed towards Tignes for only the second time this season. I’d better stay in ‘code-mode’ although the photos are a dead give away! Anyway, it was another fantastic morning and Louise came along for her first outing of the season and skied beautifully (as usual), and I also had Quentin, Mike and Ken, who’d never ‘skinned’ before. We skied some steep slopes and the team acquitted themselves really well. Bravo everyone!

Jean-Marc was out touring while Olivier and Thomas are skiing with the Ski Club and Andreas is skiing on-piste with his Thai clients. I hope JM gets Johnny Alpine down in time because I’m going to John’s for a double header this afternoon. First up is Man U v Tottenham, followed by Liverpool v West Ham, and then Aberdeen Angus burgers!

We had some high cloud today that diluted the sun a little and after over two weeks of clear blue skies and full sunshine it was a little annoying. Just kidding, the light was still very good but Mont Blanc did develop a ‘hat’ during the morning so maybe we’ll get some snow. I’m not too optimistic about that but it would be nice. Stay tuned for more news tomorrow, and come on you Hammers!
PS Today’s photos are the last 14 starting with a photo of La Grande Casse.
