Slightly overcast but great skiing!

14 January 2018

We had high cloud cover this morning but enough light filtered through to allow us to ski positively for the most part and everyone had a great morning. Chris and I headed back up to the Fornet because it’s the best snow in town and we did a ‘double-skin’ in the Pays Desert, which was excellent, followed by the Col Pers and out through the gorge. The Lechoir is more wind affected than the Pers side so we stayed in the Col Pers and found some great snow before cutting right towards the bottom.

Sandy and Stuart-the-Sea-Captain started their season’s this morning and I had a couple of new young Vikings along, Johan and Andreas, as well as Vitas, who is Canadian.

I went to the Baraque last night to have a drink with Tilly and Peter H, and Tilly had to leave because she was cooking for Sylvie, but Peter and I stayed to listen to an excellent 4-piece band. Peter had to peel out as well for a YSE dinner (which you don’t want to miss!) so I stayed for another half-hour listening to the music. They are really good and tonight (Sunday) is their last night so if you have the time Carol do go and see them, kicking off at 7:30.

Hopefully we’ll have another sunny day tomorrow before the snow moves in. The forecast was calling for up to two metres of snow but they are backing off a little now and it shouldn’t be that disruptive. Fingers crossed and stay tuned!

PS Millie played golf this morning and is pretty happy with her game at the moment and Gill and the girls are going to the cinema this afternoon. Have fun!
