The sun continued to beat down today......

18 March 2009

The sun continued to beat down today but we all still managed to ski powder snow again this morning. Henry went down to Bonneval and had a great day out while Thomas ‘skinned’ up to the Col des Barmes de l’Ours to ski lovely frisset. Chris and I skied excellent snow in the Lavachet before ‘skinning’ out then had really good snow in the Sachette. Andreas also skied the Lavachet and Sache but took it easy on his group and missed out the ‘skinning’. Gill and I skied with Millie and Katie this afternoon and Katie skied her way to a ‘skier of the day’ award as she started turning for the first time. Bravo Katie! We’d like the Ski Club to know that we don’t take any offence to any of their comments and we’re very interested in their debate. Thanks to Mike and Laura for a great meal last night and it was lovely to see Bridget again. (For those of you who don’t know, Bridget was married to Giles Green who was a founding member of Alpine Experience. Giles sadly died of a brain tumour in 1995 and I dedicated my book to his memory) After thinking about Giles the weather seems trivial but another sunny day is forecast for tomorrow with a chance of a few flakes Friday night.
