After looking out the window around 7:45AM and seeing a bank of cloud towards the Fornet (where we were going rain or shine) I wasn’t expecting the stunning blue sky that appeared by ‘show-time’. We all headed the same way and weren’t disappointed as the snow was exceptional and surprisingly knee-deep in places. Chris’ and my teams skied two great runs in the Pays Desert before heading over the Col to ski a superb Tour du Lechoir while the rest of the boys were in the same neighbourhood. Olivier ended up skiing the Col des Fours in wonderful snow late in the afternoon after spending the morning with us around the Glacier. His wife Claire has been here with him this week and has had a wonderful time skiing and watching Oli in action. Bravo Olivier! Suzanne kicked-off her season in style this morning and we’re all looking forward to another great day tomorrow as the sun is forecast to shine again. I’d like to mention how fantastic it has been this week to have Henley back skiing. He has had a wonderful time catching up with skiing friends that he and Jan have known for twenty-years or so, and we all thought of Jan as Henley skied for them both. Come back soon Henley!
