Good freeze and wonderful skiing!
14 April 2017
After a jolly good freeze last night it was game-on and we had another terrific morning of big spring slopes. It’s amazing how much ground you can cover skiing spring snow and today my team skied the lower half of the Face du Charvet, then we hiked up to ski into the Tour du Charvet, then we played above the L waiting for the big slopes to soften before skiing the Cugnai, Col de la Madeleine and Marmottons into the Marmottes to finish. It was Dom, Rupert, Jason and Stephen’s last day so we skied until 1:30 as the snow was still holding up. Andreas and Henry were in the same area and had brilliant mornings while Thomas had a belter in Tignes skiing the Lavachet, three off the Palafour, the Sache and Familial on the way home with the Parker family.
Jean was skiing with Gill and Katie for most of the morning before the girls joined us for the last three runs. Both of them loved it and what a change from piste skiing as Gill hasn’t had too many off-piste opportunities this winter!
Henry had a family who had never skied off-piste before and they had their 11 and 8 year-old children with them, and when I saw them at the bottom of the Marmottons they were grinning from ear-to-ear. Bravo Henry, you showed them a stunning time!
We had a family walk on the Balcon yesterday afternoon before Millie and I had an hour in the golf simulator at the Centre Aquasportif. The girls are having an absolutely brilliant holiday and hopefully the weather will be kind for their last few days. Fingers crossed and stay tuned!
