For the fourth day in a row, Ray said, “That would have been a good try to quit on!” We had a cracking good morning of ‘classic spring’ starting with a very good Banane. From there we skied a very tasty Tour du Charvet way out skiers-left and exited through the Couloir du Mont Blanc, which is always atmospheric. We then skied the Cugnai, which was firmer than I’d like so we stop for a beer, in Colin’s case two, and waited for the west slopes to soften a little. We then skied an excellent Col du Madeleine followed by an equally good Marmattons to finish. Jeremy R joined Colin, Derek, Paul, and Ray this morning as his pals were fighting off hangovers. Chris and Suzanne ’skinned’ to the Col des Fours and Lores while JM did the same via the Col de la Calabourdane. The forecast is for a lighter freeze tonight but the sun should be out and we’re hoping for a great finish tomorrow. I won’t be doing an up-date tomorrow as I’m off around 2PM to drive back to the girls for the Band Holiday on Monday. Chris however, may do an up-date and I’ll write one once settled in England.
