Cold and windy, but great skiing!

11 February 2010

The forecast was wrong again, much to our benefit, and we enjoyed another atmospheric morning in misty but good light. We all headed up to the Fornet for a change of scenery and although it was cold and windy in places, we had a superb ski. Chris, Andreas and I started off on the shoulder in the Combe du Signal, which was very good. From there Chris and I skied a lovely Pays Desert way out to the left, where we ‘skinned’ for five-minutes towards the bottom to access the big slopes above the poma. TJ skied the Combe du 3300 with Roly and Oscar while Andreas skied a Pays Desert ‘Classic‘, and we all then went over the Col Pers, which was excellent all the way to the bottom. It was cold enough today for some frost-bit cheeks and it was the coldest morning we’ve had for a couple of weeks now, but we managed and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their skiing. Another cold but brighter day is forecast for tomorrow so hopefully they’ll get the ‘bright’ bit right. Stay tuned!

Sports Report- I slept incredibly well with three-well-earned-points in the bank after the Hammers win against Birmingham last night. I’m however saddened by the talk of Zola losing his job as he’s the best thing that’s happened to West Ham in a long time. If he gets the sack there will be many very disappointed Hammers fans who feel he’s the right man to build a solid and exciting team for the future.
