Sun for the next five days at least!
12 March 2017
We had a minimum re-freeze last night and with slightly overcast skies it wasn’t going to be the easiest of days. After two weeks of pretty aggressive skiing I had a nice relaxing day with Geoff and Penny as we skied some immaculate piste followed by a nice trip through the Sachette. The skiing up high was a little trickier without the visibility, but the mid-altitude north-facing spring snow was lovely and we then cut out early due to the lack of freeze. Andreas had a more adventurous morning as he had the Peter, Paul, Derek and pals show and he did a great job skiing the Little Lavachet, then had a little play under the Palafour, followed by the Sachette and then finished off around the Jardin du Borsat and Spatule. Meanwhile Chris ‘skinned’ up to the Col des Fours and had a pretty good morning as well. All in all it was a pretty good day for a potentially tricky one and everyone was happy with their various outings.
I had an excellent afternoon working on technique with John D. Conditions were almost perfect and the pistes were pretty quiet, which makes it much easier to concentrate when trying the various exercises. Well done John!
Sun is forecast for the next five days so we should have some great spring skiing coming up. Tomorrow might be one day early but we’ll be out there hoping for the best. Stay tuned!
