21 February 2009

It was only -8C overnight with Radio Will promising warmer temperatures, and he wasn’t wrong! After what seems weeks and weeks of cold weather the sun had some strength in it today and the businesses with terraces prospered. As for the skiing, Chris and I ’skinned’ up to the Col Des Fours and were rewarded with fantastic snow top-to-bottom. We then climbed up over the next little Col and skied excellent snow before dropping through a lovely couloir with good snow and great ambience. It was eighteen-year-old James’ second-ever ‘skin’ and he thoroughly enjoyed himself even though he was totally ‘shagged’ as you English would say. Well done James! Andreas finished up his on-piste week today and is planning a trip to Bonneval tomorrow with Henry on a recognisant mission. I’ve the day off so I’m having a Chevallot breakfast with the girls before a little family ski. Millie and Gill had a brilliant morning with Anna and her Mum Julia before they invited us to lunch at Bananas. It was great to see Ricky and Amid again and the girls loved their burger and frites followed by ice-cream. Thanks Andy and Julia. There is a rumour of a few flakes tomorrow afternoon, which would be brilliant but we’re not holding our breath. (I was going to wait for the footie results and do a Sports Report but the Hammers are down 2-0 after eleven minutes so I’ve lost my enthusiasm).
