Although we’ve enjoyed the best snow season in twenty-years we are definitely enduring a dry spell, but the boys are doing the business and making the best of each day and today was another good result. Andreas skied the Little Lavachet en-route to the Sachette and had excellent snow in both, while Henry entertained a group who were ‘skinning’ for the first time taking them towards the Borsat West. Chris and I headed up to the Cols des Fours and had a great ski and well done Penny for a big effort after arriving at 1:30AM this morning. Andreas wanted a mention for Neil P who is new to ‘Alpine’ and managed the Glacier Pers yesterday on borrowed skinny skins and without touring bindings. Bravo young man and well done for signing on for more! The weather looked like it might turn this morning as the wind picked up significantly and the sky was black towards Mont Blanc, but it brightened up again so who knows? The forecast on the web calls for a sunny day with 30 kph winds from the north.
