31 January 2009

We awoke to clear skies again and -10C in the village at 8AM. The teams spread themselves out around the resort as Andreas ‘skinned’ to the Col des Fours with Ian K’s group, TJ chose the Glacier Pers for Hound-Dog, Sandy, and Stuart’s last morning, while Chris and Tejina skied Mont Roup. Thomas did a tour out wide in the Pays Desert and I’m not too sure what Jean Marc was up to today. My team skied 126-turns on the Rosolin before ‘skinning’ up towards the summit of the Pramecou and all the groups had excellent snow again this morning. The forecast is for a change of weather tomorrow with the wind picking up and clouds rolling in, but whether or not we’ll see some snow by morning is another story. (I’m off now to have a ski with Millie and will continue after the Premiership results) And what a cracking great ski with Millie as we did seven runs on the new Marmottes Express before skiing down and home on the ’avalanche run’, which passes under the Funival. We saw Philip G and his son Cameron en-route so it was nice to have another naughty Dad in the area. Anyway, Millie is flying and loving it! Our only hic-cup was a boarder pulling out without looking and Millie clipping the front of his board and catapulting herself half-way across the Diebold. No harm done and no tears so it was a good learning experience. And to finish off a great day the Hammers drew 0-0 away to Arsenal to pick up a valuable point after four straight wins. Hats off to ten-man Stoke as well for a brilliant 1-0 win against a very expensive Man City!
