Back in the saddle!!!

01 January 2018

After the toughest day of the season yesterday it was a great reward for those skiing again today as just enough snow fell to keep us afloat and it made for some seriously good skiing. With the northerly wind blowing all night the southern slopes in the lee loaded up beautifully and we had some excellent powder up high but still needed to deal with patches of a thin rain-crust below around 2200 to 2300 metres. Chris, Thomas and I were on the first funicular up the Motte in 2018 and were rewarded with a good 30 centimetres of fresh light snow and I skied two rotations while Chris and Thomas circled around three times. I’m sure it was good up there yesterday but we never had the chance to find out with the funicular shut all day long.

I had a great trip to Geneva with the girls and Ray yesterday with clear blue skies and empty roads. It’s snowing hard again at the moment and I’m so lucky to have been travelling with yesterday’s weather as compared to today or Saturday’s! I’m missing thr girls already but thank goodness for Face time!

And a big thank you to Geoff and Inga for an absolutely divine New Year’s lunch with great food, stunning wine and wonderful company! I’m beautifully sedated as I write this blog and then move on to my Valdinet update, which will be posted tomorrow morning so log on and have a look. It can be found under Snow Report, which is just an extension of ‘Wayne’s World’! Stay tuned!

PS The Guinea Pigs are playing at Le Petit Danois Thursday night at 5:30. See you there!
