Tough conditions but fun anyway!

08 April 2018

The re-freeze last night after a hot day yesterday was pretty much non-existent, and with strong foehn winds blowing at the Fornet we didn’t have a lot of options. It was without a doubt one of the tougher mornings of the season but I think everyone had a really good time as Andreas, Henry and I made the most of what was on offer. (See photos) I had Liz and Tony from Los Angeles visiting Val d’Isere for the first time and they really enjoyed our trip through the Sachette where we had some powder up top followed by fragile spring snow before cutting out early to avoid ‘quick-snow’ further down. The Sachette offers stunning scenery and with the fragile conditions it was a ‘travelling safely in the mountains’ experience with some good skiing as well. Once back to the pistes the piste skiing was excellent as it was pretty quiet and the slopes were nice and smooth with a lovely ‘spring-like’ texture.

If it doesn’t freeze tonight tomorrow won’t be much easier so fingers crossed for a clear cold night and a little sun in the morning. And a point or three for the Hammers this afternoon! Stay tuned!
