Our new secretary Charlotta has arrived

21 December 2009

It snowed a little more than forecast last night and the day started with decent light that deteriorated from about 11 0’clock on. JM, Chris and I all headed to the Fornet and had a great morning in the Grand Vallon and Combe du Signal. Jean Marc has a ladies team of Marilyn, Ali, and Jo H and he’s travelling in good company. Thomas had a fantastic day with a new French family around Bellevarde and Tignes and Olivier skied the Tour du Charvet and Arcelle sectors with his family, while Andreas continues with his Thai clients.Henry was in action with Megan and Paul, both of whom are skiing with us for the first time. It snowed lightly most of the day and hopefully we’ll see more snow tonight with a rain/snow limit around 2000m. Some warm snow wouldn’t be a bad thing as with all the goblet that has formed during the cold snap the weight will help the mountain to purge itself, and the sooner the better. Although the avalanche risk is only 2 or 3 out of 5, big slopes are demanding much more respect than that, as the base is rotten. We also had high winds from the south-east in places today so there will be plaques developing on top of the weak layer.

Our new secretary Charlotta has started in the office so she’ll be at the other end of the phone. She doesn’t know the clients yet so let her know who you’d like to ski with if you have a preference. And please give her a good old fashion ‘Alpine’ welcome.
