Five centimetres of snow fell over night.....

18 April 2009

Five centimetres of snow fell over night and after yesterday’s heat Chris, Henry and I had a good chat about conditions at the Gourmandine. Chris decided to go for a walk in search of powder up high and north and had a great result in the Col des Fours with Tejina and Suzanne. They then had some bonus turns over the next little Col and then headed to the Grande Motte this afternoon for more winter snow. Well done Chris’ team! Henry and I stayed low and skied mostly spring snow and my team skied off the front of the Borsat followed by a beautiful Lavachet way out to the skiers-right. From there we skied the Cocaine Sud followed by an excellent Jardinie. Henry started off the Borsat as well and then stayed on the Val d’Isere side of the mountain, and I’m not too sure what he skied. Anyway, we all had a really good ski on a morning that could have been in-between and tricky. Gideon finished his season today and made some great progress this winter and Jane skied with me this morning while Kev took care of their children. It was very warm this afternoon so even more spring snow will be setting up although we my see a few more flakes of snow tonight. (I’ll come back with a Sports Report if the Hammers get a late equaliser).

Sports Report- Yes, yes, yes! Late goal for the Hammers for a 1-1 draw away to Villa and a big point. And well done Stoke and Sunderland for massive wins!
