For the sixth day in a row I headed up to the Fornet

09 February 2009

For the sixth day in a row I headed up to the Fornet along with Chris, and it was another absolutely brilliant day! We skied two Grand Vallons and a Combe du Signal in flattish light, then a Pays Desert, and a trip over the Col through the Gorge in sunshine, and all in superb snow. Along with Ray and Gill I had Sacha and Jeremy with me, and Jeremy wanted me to give his Mum Shira a mention, who follows their skiing on the site. Chris had Sharon who is a first-timer to ‘Alpine’, and she had a wonderful time and slotted in beautifully with Pascale. Andreas headed to Tignes, Henry had a group of Vikings, and TJ ‘skinned’ to Mont Roup. I haven’t had a report but I’m sure all the teams had great skiing. I took Millie out with her friend Zak and his Mum Vicky this afternoon, and it’s incredibly good fun and satisfying to see such little people ski so well and enjoy it so much. Bravo! Meanwhile Katie was off in town with Ray drinking hot chocolate, having a horse-drawn sleigh ride, and an ice cream at the Perdrix. Thanks Ray. We finished the afternoon off watching the Slalom portion of the Combined on the Face du Bellevarde, and the ambience was festive and exciting. It was another great day and hopefully tonight’s forecasted wind won’t ruin the great skiing that we’ve been treated to. And Happy birthday to Liz and a be-lated Happy Birthday to my sister Wendy.
