Low expectations but what a result!
15 April 2017
The forecast for today wasn’t very inspiring and we weren’t really expecting much as it was suppose to be overcast with a minimum freeze and I thought our options would be fairly limited, but wow, what a morning! The freeze was really pretty decent and the clouds rolled away quickly so the sun could start to warm up the snow and Thomas and I had great mornings in Tignes. I started with the Alti-port in the Lower Lavachet, then two runs off the Palafour before ‘skinning’ into the Sachette, which held up beautifully all the way to the bottom, and then we finished with a Familial to the first bridge. Considering what we were expecting, especially when looking out the window at 6AM, it was a fantastic result!
Andreas’ brother is here from Sweden and he spent the day with his family while Chris and Henry were off this morning.
The forecast for tomorrow is pretty similar to today’s so fingers crossed for a decent result again tomorrow. And come on you Hammers!
PS Thanks to Penny for a fabulous meal last night!
