Although it was clear during the night it started snowing big flakes around 6:30 AM and the better visibility that was forecast was nowhere in sight. Just as we were leaving the Rond Point a bit of blue above the Charvet appeared so we decided to head to the Fornet via Solaise knowing that more snow had accumulated at that end of the resort. Upon arriving at the summit of Solaise the Arcelle was basking in sunshine so Andreas, Thomas and I dove over the side of the Madeleine and had knee-deep snow to the bottom. You could feel the ‘spring base’ at times but it was an easy trade-off for sunshine when the rest of the resort in cloud. Anyway, from there we worked our way back to the Fornet to ski an outstanding Combe du Signal in deep, light snow. It was socked-in and we couldn’t see a thing but it really was good! Chris then radioed to say the Pissaillas Glacier was in sunshine so we headed up to join him for some of the best snow we’ve had in the Pays Desert for quite some time. Four runs later it was time to call it a morning as everyone was late for lunch. Deborah Finlay was skiing with Andreas and it was nice to have her along while Suzanne was back skiing again with Chris and Rob Cochran had a great morning with Chris a few days ago. It started to clear for the afternoon but fortunately the clouds came back in and light snow started falling so we should have another wonderful day tomorrow.
