You may well be logging-on to check out yesterday’s skiing news, but here’s today’s as well. Ray and I went out for the shortest ‘Alpine’ ski on record, skiing from the top of Bellevarde down to the half-way station at La Daille where we took the bubble-lift down. We were in good company as we met Rob C at the top of the Olympic and then again for the trip down in the bubbles. A strong north wind was blowing right in our faces and with the humidity it was jolly cold and very uninspiring, so after a half a run we all happily called it a day as we’ve packing and cleaning to deal with over the next few days. We did step off the piste for a test to find an un-supporting crust, which although it was bad for today, it will be better tomorrow. It’s snowing at the moment and ten cm’s on top of today’s crust will make for good skiing tomorrow. It is forecast to snow lightly until around mid-night and the sun should appear to help us put on a good show for the final weekend of the season. Yahoo! I watched the Barca-boys totally dominate Chelsea last night but the Blues managed to hang-on for a draw. Barcelona look incredibly slick and what a final it would be against United at their best?
