Spring skiing with minimum effort doesn't get much better!

22 April 2017

Wow, that was another fantastic morning! We had another solid freeze and with the sun heating things up again the spring slopes turned beautifully and Chris and my teams had a superb morning in Tignes. We skied piste into Tignes to profit from the spring snow and had a great run off the Palafours, followed by a brilliant run on the Tourne, then a lovely Sachette, a sneaky run off the Aiguille Rouge and a funky Familial to finish. In-between we had some excellent piste and I thought it was a brilliant morning.

Last night I had my nephew Wils and his university mates, Jack, Oli, and Bradley over for chilli, wine and tunes and we had a brilliant evening. I subjected them to JJ Cale, Lonnie Donegan with Van-the-man, Chris Barber and Doctor John (the Skiffle Sessions), The Eagles, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and then some serious Led Zepplin to send them out pre-loaded into the night. The boys have had a stunning week including Jack’s birthday and I thoroughly enjoyed their company last night as well as at the Killerbeez!

We’ve a couple more days of good weather before it starts to get tricky but some snow is forecast and fingers crossed it’s enough to get back to the Fornet and some powder skiing. It’s very quiet this week with Thomas on a couple of days of privates while Chris and I are quiet until the weekend, and Andreas is off with his family for a little holiday.

Come on you Hammers and stay tuned!

PS Andreas had a family ski today and Millie has a Surrey Girls golf day tomorrow. Have fun Mils!
