Happy Birthday Suzanne

04 December 2009

I didn’t ski this morning and spent the entire day painting my apartment as I’ve a massive project on the go. Meanwhile Andreas, Chris and Pietro had a fantastic morning as another 15cm’s of light snow fall overnight, and the visibility was better than forecast. Chris headed up to the Fornet for the opening day up there and although the light wasn’t as good, the snow was wonderful. John F said it was the best start he’s ever had and was well impressed by making his first turn of the season in powder. Suzanne skied her first morning as well and what a birthday present! Not too much is open up at the Fornet but more should open with another snowfall or two. Peter and Clare C started their season with equal aplomb with Andreas around Bellevarde, the Borsat and towards Tignes, and they satisfied smiles on their faces when they passed by the shop tonight. Pietro also had a great morning skiing Tignes-way with Fiona and he is here for just over a week, while JM and Oli should be arriving in the next day or two as they have the Ski Club next week. I’m not too sure about tomorrow’s forecast except that it should be around -10C tonight. (Wish me luck as the injury-riddled Hammers take on the Mighty United tomorrow.)
