Teased again with early visibility

03 January 2010

We had some great snow today but we were again teased with good early light that deteriorated rapidly, leaving us in fairly flat-light. Chris and I tested the snow off the Verte, which was stiff, before skiing a good Lower Borsat. From there we skied an excellent Combe du Lanches, followed by a lovely Col du Palet, before finishing with a so-so Familial. Unfortunately we had our flow disrupted a couple of times with lifts breaking down. Andreas had the day off and celebrated Ness’ fifth-birthday, happy birthday Ness! Thomas finished his week with the Hampden-Smith family and Jean Marc has now returned home after nearly a month. Chris has spent the past couple of afternoons skiing off-piste with Michael R’s 12-year-old daughter Leah, and Eugene’s 13-year-old son Anthony. Well done you two! TJ’s son Roly was skiing 40cm’s of powder in Scotland today, just north of Cawdor. Lucky you Roly. Snow is forecast this evening, which would be great as we need a fresh canvas if the flat-light is to continue.
