Unexpected sunshine and a change of scenery!

15 January 2018

We had unexpectedly clear skies this morning and we profited with a jolly good ski and appreciated the ‘bonus’ day of sunshine. Chris, TJ and I did a ‘double -skin’ to the Crete du Genepy and Mont Roup and the skiing was excellent and a nice change after three days the Fornet. Thomas went off toward Tignes and the Sachette while Andreas skied Mont Roup then headed to the Fornet to ‘skin’ into the Grand Vallon from the Pyramid, but just when he was getting ready to ‘skin’ they opened the poma. What a result that was!

I had two new skiers this morning, Ed and his sister Emma from Scotland, and boy could they ski! Chapeau to you both and we look forward to skiing with you again sometime soon. (See photos)

It’s a short one today as I’ve a paperwork and French bureaucracy nightmare going on and it’s no fun!

Stay tuned for more news tomorrow and we should be skiing in fresh snow, flat-light and hopefully not too much wind!

PS And thanks to Geoff and Inga for a superb evening and meal last night. It was funny Russell and I speaking about how long it will take the Teli-ski to open to access the Grand Vallon, Combe du Signal and Vallonnet and we both thought it would be ages with another storm looming. Just show what we know!
