A stunning Mont Roup and the 'L' for Katie!

15 February 2010

It was -13C for the third straight day and we enjoyed another beautiful day of non-stop sunshine. Andreas and Chris are on piste duty with families while Thomas was entertaining the Campbell and Louden children and giving them a good hard ski. TJ and I were off-piste and TJ was skiing with Erik and Jackie Browne along with their children Holly and Fergus. I’m not too sure what they skied but I did see some good tracks about and I’m sure TJ’s team was probably responsible. My team of John, Margaret, Derek, Gideon, and Clare C ‘skinned’ to Mont Roup for a fantastic ski in deep goblet. The base is rotten to the bottom and will be dangerous when it snows, and even now you must be careful, but it does ski beautifully. We also had the bonus of some nice skiing down from the Borsat en-route to putting on our ‘skins’ so it was a cracking good result. Clare skied really well (she knows Peter will be logging-on) and Derek is handling his knee problem although he’s not nearly 100%. Katie skied the ‘L’ this morning and Millie was out from 9AM until 4:30. (Hopefully that’ll wear them out.) I’m really proud of them both and it’s wonderful to watch them progress and enjoy the snow and mountains, which have been such an important part of my life. Ness was also out this morning in a ski school group and she’ll be skiing all-week long. We should have a sunny day tomorrow although there may be some clouds about, and a little snow is forecast for Wednesday.
