A cloudy day but just enough light!

16 February 2010

At 7AM it looked as if we were in for another sunny day, but by 9:30 the clouds covered our domain. Fortunately the light wasn’t too bad and we could see enough to ski without worrying about ploughing into something. TJ ’skinned’ to Mont Roup with the Browne family and had a great ski while I went up to the Fornet for a change of scenery. We had a decent run on the shoulder in the Combe du Signal before heading up to the Glacier, where we skied an excellent Pays Desert. We hiked up for ten-minutes to access the first slope from the top, then we went out wide left before ‘skinning’ for five-minutes to ski a lovely 80-plus-turn pitch to the bottom. I’d spotted some nice snow further over in the Combe du Signal so we returned for another run before finishing in the ‘L’. Chris finished his three days of piste skiing and will be back off-piste tomorrow. Thomas is still skiing with Derek’s family and the Campbell Clan while Andreas has another two-days with his piste group. Grey skies are forecast for tomorrow but if we’re lucky we might just get a few flakes tonight. (But don’t hold your breath) It’s getting tougher and tougher each day now and we’re now in need of a fresh canvas so hopefully we’ll get some relief in the next few days.
