What a brilliant morning that turned out to be!

20 February 2018

I went to bed last night expecting a cloudy grey morning and was thinking about a hard piste ski combined with the Sache, but the day dawned fairly brightly and by 10 o’clock we were basking in full sunshine. Thomas and I both warmed up with a lovely Jardin du Borsat Nord while waiting to see what the weather was going to do as we were thinking Sache or Motte, and in the end we both decided to head to the Motte. Adrian and Doug had never skied the Borsat West before so we climbed up through the rocks and were rewarded with an absolutely brilliant ski. There were two Mountain Guides behind us who thanked us for our tracks and they were pretty impressed with the boy’s performance. Well done boys! From there we skied my shoulder three times before ‘skinning’ up to the Little Borsat West, which was excellent, and then we finished with a great Alti-port. It was a stunning morning made all the better by unexpected sunshine, which is always a winner! (I think Adrian and Doug will be pleased with their photos today!)

Thomas skied the Tour du Balme with his ladies team while Chris had another good day up at the Fornet. Andreas was off again this morning skiing with his family and I didn’t see Henry at the Gourmandine.

You’ll have noticed a new photo link under Wayne’s Photos but for the moment it isn’t working and the last three days photos can be found on the regular link. Hopefully we’ll get the new link running soon as it will save me some time each afternoon. Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!
