01 April 2009

No joking, I was half expecting a ‘stinker’ this morning after looking out the window at 8AM to see grey skies and drizzle accompanied by a strong foehn wind. It wasn’t looking too good but when we arrived at the top of Bellevarde there was a patch of sunshine around the Borsat and the snow was supporting with some fresh snow in the gullies and on the lee-side of little rolls. Andreas, Chris and I all had a great run off the front of the Borsat in some lovely soft snow and the three sets of ‘Alpine’ tracks really stood out. We then skied the Lavachet en-route to the Sachette as it was clearer that way and we enjoyed sunshine and good snow all morning long when the rest of the resort was in cloud. Henry was doing a ‘HAT’ day and was in the same sector but I lost track of him. Chris skied off-piste with Tim and Gill in the afternoon while I skied with Chris, Joe and Sam. At this time of year the snow becomes a little more ‘educatif’ in the afternoon but it was jolly good skiing anyway and the sun continued to follow us around. Thomas is working hard entertaining Adam P’s kids who like jumps, bumps and everything else youngsters enjoy. Hang in there Thomas! Strong south and south-east winds are forecast this evening with a decent amount of snow, especially towards the Fornet, so fingers crossed!
