Just about spring!

16 April 2018

The sun was shining this morning and that made everyone feel better even though it was warm with a minimal overnight re-freeze. Our options were limited but all the boys had a fantastic morning skiing ‘clean’ spring snow that gave us just enough support. There was some nice skiing off the Verte to test the snow and then Chris led the way on the big slopes of the Tourne, the Sachette, Toothy Rock and the Familial to finish. We stopped a little early but the freeze had disappeared and there really wasn’t anything else to do except go up the Funival to ski the piste so we all took an early lunch satisfied with our morning.

I took my Blizzard’s out today and they are magnificent on the firm piste and spring snow and I really enjoyed them. They do bite back a little when the snow is soft and a little tricky and I piled in twice within 20 metres at the end of the morning. First time I crossed my tips and about ten seconds later I was thrown to the ground while napping on the job. I had snow plugged in my ears and stuffed between my eyeballs and the lenses of my sunglasses and I wasn’t particularly happy about it, but it was operational and not mechanical! No harm done however and we should have more options tomorrow as it heats up this afternoon followed hopefully by a decent freeze tonight. Fingers crossed!

Sports Report- Millie had a great time at her Surrey Girls Golf Programme yesterday, my friend Tom’s son Scott is a rookie playing for the Philadelphia Phillies and he’s having a brilliant start to his Major League career and the Hammers could pretty much guarantee survival with a victory tonight. Come on boys!

The London Marathon is next weekend and time is running out to sponsor Ghiselle. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and for those who haven’t there is still time to give to this most worthwhile charity.

Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!
