Our sunny spell is coming to an end with stormy weather and snow forecast for Tuesday

22 March 2009

Our sunny spell is coming to an end with stormy weather and snow forecast for Tuesday, but we another great ski today under clear blue skies. Chris skied some nice snow on the Rosolin en-route to the Tour du Balme and the big North Face, where he had some lovely ‘chalky’ snow. (Suzanne was back in action after skiing with Laura and Bridget last week.) Andreas and John headed up to the Col des Fours and I haven’t had a report but Jean R said his Col yesterday was “superb” and I’m sure Andreas will have ‘sniffed’ something out. (Definitions of ‘superb’ can change drastically according to what’s on offer and merci Jean for being appreciative of what we deal with.) I skied some good snow on the front of the Borsat before a little ’skin’ to the Borsat West, which was fantastic. It’s not a huge ski but the snow quality really was excellent. (Thomas and Henry took it easy and didn’t ski today.) Gill took Katie out to the Nursery Slopes this morning and Katie skied the poma 9 times on her own, much to the delight of Millie who is very proud of her little sister. On the sports front, what a win for Liverpool who seem to have found another gear and are putting a fright up the Man U supporters. I still think United’s game in hand will make the difference and they’ll hold on for the title. Meanwhile, bad news for Newcastle fans! They couldn’t really go down, could they! Stay tuned as we enjoy the last of the sunshine before getting some much needed snow and a new canvas to work with.
