17 February 2009

The day started off grey with flattish-light, light snow and a gusting north-wind, which made it feel much colder again today. Needless to say it was looking a little uninspiring first thing but we ended up having a really good session. The sun poked through from time to time giving us decent visibility for the most part and the wind blew in some snow making for some good pockets of soft snow. Chris and I started next to our tracks of yesterday in the Borsat, followed by a good run off the Leisse, then we ‘skinned’ up for an excellent little Borsat West, followed by a run off the Cairn and a Familial to finish. It was cracking good stuff really, especially for a day that started out rather dull. Thomas was in action, Andreas was on-piste with his team and I’m not too sure what Henry is up to at the moment. We are all working afternoons this week as typically at this time of year the resort is full of people who haven’t booked early and we end up skiing with kids and beginners. It seems to happen every year at this time and no one is complaining as work is work, especially during the tough times everyone is experiencing. Ray is off to England for a week before returning next Wednesday, perhaps for the season. Nice one Red! Another cold night is forecast with a bright sunny day tomorrow.
