No new snow fell overnight and with extremely grey skies first thing it was fairly uninspiring

01 March 2009

No new snow fell overnight and with extremely grey skies first thing it was fairly uninspiring. Chris and I headed towards the best light on offer and skied piste en-route to the Sachette. It was decent skiing up top but pretty ‘scratchy’ down low, and we ended up cutting out early. Andreas played around the Borsat West while Henry entertained Gill’s friend Nicky who was skiing off piste for the first time, along with Pat M. Just when you thought it might start snowing properly the clouds thinned out and it was really very pleasant this afternoon as Millie, Ray, Nicky and I had a rip-roaring piste session. Meanwhile Gill was taking the plunge and getting herself a new pair of injected boots from Wilkie at Surefoot. After 12-years her boots didn’t owe her anything and they were starting to hurt. Up to 65 cm’s of snow are forecast this week with the bulk of it (20cm’s) falling Wednesday night. As Henry said, “Bring it on!”.

Sports Report- My really good day became even better when I logged-on to find that the Hammers had beaten City 1-0 and moved up to 7th place in the Premiership. Well done West Ham! Stocky’s bliss over Boro’s move out of the relegation zone yesterday after their great win over Liverpool was short lived as Blackburn won to drop them back into ‘no-man’s land’. Boy it’s ugly down there! Bolton had another good win and are feeling better than they were a couple of weeks ago and Stoke picked up a big point while Hull who once looked sure to stay up, are now in big trouble. Jean R will be pleased with the French display against Wales, TJ will be pleased to not win the ‘wooden spoon’ and John D won’t be too pleased with the state of English Rugby. Ah, I almost forgot Man U’s win against Tottenham in the Carling Cup.
