Mont Roup comes through again!

16 January 2010

Today was almost the reverse of yesterday with sun first thing giving way to whitening skies by about 11:30AM. Chris and I ‘skinned’ to Mont Roup and managed our ski down in good visibility, just before the flat light set in. It’s the third time I’ve skied Mont Roup this season and it’s come up trumps every time. We had excellent snow but unfortunately Derek hurt his knee and we’re now waiting on news as to how serious it is. He was skiing beautifully when his ski just came off without reason and in the resulting fall he damaged his knee. Fingers crossed for him as he’s off to Canada heli-skiing with Paul and Colin in two-weeks time. Andreas had a good morning up at the Fornet and the rest of the team had the day off. Katie skied the Madeleine three times this afternoon with Gill while I had a solid blast with Millie. Ten to twenty centimetres of snow are expected this evening, which would be welcome as the resort is fairly tracked out again. Log-on for more news tomorrow!

PS Great shots of Steve, Jeff and Paul, well done Jean!
