Another outstanding morning of high-quality powder!

07 January 2010

Wow! It was another great day with wonderful snow and unexpectedly good light. The forecast was for the cloud cover to take over from between 11 and 12 o’clock, but the clouds held off until around 3PM. I teamed up with Andreas and we started with a very good Lavachet, followed by an excellent Super Cocaine Sud, then on to the Cocaine Nord, which was perhaps as good as I’ve ever skied it. We then finished with the Familial, which is also as good as it skis. Thomas was in the same neighbourhood while I’m not too sure what Henry skied. Chris headed up to the Motte and had fantastic skiing as well, but his story was a little adventurous. He skied near a rock and dropped through an enormous hole and disappeared. His clients found him and needed to dig him out! Check Jean R’s photo link on the links page to see for yourself. Merci Jean! Lucky you Chris as it looks as if it could have been damaging. I had a brilliant afternoon with 11-year-old Leah, 12-year-old Hugh and parents. It is so pleasing to see what these young skiers can deal with and very encouraging to see how much they enjoy it. I almost forgot that it was -17C in town this morning but we all managed the entire morning without seeking shelter and enjoyed another lovely ski. Some snow is forecast for this evening and we’ll wait and see what tomorrow brings.
