Snow is on the way!

07 December 2017

It was Dave H’s first day of the season and probably our last sunny day for a while and Derek, Dave Chris, Doug and I headed for Tignes. We skied some lovely piste to warm-up then headed up the Motte for the views and a ski while waiting for the sun to hit the Borsat West. After skiing some ‘leftovers’ off the Genepy we ‘skinned’ up for 20-minutes and skied some excellent snow in the meadows of the Little Borsat West. Next up was a trip into the Campanules, which was pretty good and we finished off our morning with some bits and bobs and a piste cruise.

Pietro is skiing with Fiona M for the next few days and JM and Thomas have today and tomorrow left with the touring group. They were heading towards the Col de la Madeleine this morning and I’m sure they found some good snow in that sector.

I’d like to thank Derek for a great dinner last night and we had fun listening to Derek’s new music set-up while drinking some lovely white wine. Thanks Derek, and I thought Amy McDonald was fantastic!

With any luck we’ll see between 10 and 20cm’s of snow tonight and it is forecast to snow all day tomorrow and off-and-on for the next week to nine days. Blimey, that sounds too good to be true! Fingers crossed and it’s time to put the goggles back in the backpack! Stay tuned.
