Great snow with wonderful light!

09 February 2010

No new snow fell overnight and it was forecast to be grey and miserable, but we had a ‘light-bulb’ above us all morning that gave us very good visibility and made life so much easier. At times it was quite bright and another potentially difficult morning turned out to be incredibly satisfying. My team had a ‘maximum-turn’ outing skiing off the Verte to warm-up before entering the middle-Borsat through the rocks to find some great snow. We then skied three excellent rotations on the shoulder off the Leisse followed by the Cairn, the Campanules, and then a wonderful Familial to finish. I saw TJ with his crew off the Leisse and Andreas skied the Cocaine and Sachette on the way to lunch in Les Brevieres. Chris ’skinned’ to Mont Roup with his team while Thomas had a big day skiing couloirs with his private group. All the teams skied brilliant snow with terrific ambience due to the light, and being better than expected made it all the sweeter. A few flakes with grey skies are forecast for tomorrow, but we’ll wait and see.

PS I forgot to mention that Ray finished his two-week blast this morning while we welcomed Ed and Adam, both of whom are excellent skiers. It was Adam’s first real off-piste morning but since he’s skied from the age of four he slotted in brilliantly. Well done boys!
