It was a Fornet kind of morning

05 January 2010

For the first time in what seems ages the sun returned and besides the visibility it was wonderful to admire the views again. It was a Fornet type of day so the entire team headed that way and we were rewarded with another fantastic morning of superb snow, great ambience and very few other skiers. It was Gill’s first off-piste morning of her season and what a start! We skied a nice warm-up run off the Laisinant before skiing the Grand Vallon, Combe du Signal, the Combe du 3300, and a very tasty Col Pers, which was excellent top-to-bottom. Peter and Ryan had never been over the Col and they were suitably impressed, as was the Slater family. On the wildlife front we spotted where an eagle had landed and relieved itself, some Chamois, and a few Bouquetin for good measure. Andreas, Chris, Henry and Thomas all skied similar runs or variations of and it was another all-round stunning morning. It was Ray’s last day today and he picked the girls up from school and took them to Chevallot’s to chose a tart for dinner, and what a tart! Thanks Ray. Speaking of school, Millie is having a great time and really enjoying her new school, while Katie being Katie was never worried about going back to French school. Thanks again to Jean R for not only taking the time to take photos every day, but for all the editing and posting of them onto his site. Merci Jean! It may snow a little overnight but hopefully we’ll get some decent light tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
