20 February 2009

We put on another great morning of soft-snow skiing in a resort that is becoming seriously tracked-out. Chris, Thomas, and I all started with the Borsat West, which excellent after a very interesting entrance. Those of you who have been there before will know that the rocky passage on regular ski boots can be tricky, but today was the trickiest I’ve experienced yet. With that said, everyone dealt with it (with various levels of enjoyment) and I was proud of the way every ’bucked’ up and got on with it. Fourteen-year-old Mikka said, “that was cool!”. Anyway, the snow was great and we then headed to the Sachette, which was also very good but we needed to traverse around quite a long way to get to the fresh untracked snow. Hopefully it will snow now, if only a little to spruce things up as this past week the holiday-makers have been everywhere and they’ve been the busiest group of ‘trackers’ we’ve had all season. I arrived home at lunchtime and heard Katie giggling with glee in the front room and found her with her trousers and pants down around her ankles with this buzzing massage/physio device in her hand. You can guess the rest! It was incredibly funny as she squealed, “it really tickles Daddy!”. Millie and I skied with her pal Zak and his Mum Vicky this afternoon and they had a great time. It’s wonderful to watch them in action and drag them over little jumps and bumps and through gullies and basically playing with the terrain. Andreas finishes his on-piste week tomorrow and Henry is skiing privately off-piste this week. Another mainly sunny day is forecast for tomorrow and although we may have some clouds it isn’t likely going to snow.
