A good day to have a rest!

28 February 2010

I don’t have too much to report today as I enjoyed a ‘family’ day on my first day-off of the season. It turned out to be a good day to miss as it was very warm, even at altitude, and with flat-light and an avalanche risk of 4/5 there really weren’t too many options. TJ was the only one working today and he and Richard made the most of it up around the Grande Motte. Through the cloud you could see a few areas where the mountain has purged itself, such as the Borsat West and the little bowl off the Fresse, and I’m sure many slopes have slide naturally during the day. Even yesterday on the Face du Charvet the gulley far-skiers-left had slid from the top all the way to the bottom and across the flats. With all the goblet that has built up during our two-months of cold weather this heavy snow will be dangerous and the more of the mountain that purges itself the better. I had a leisurely start to the day before skiing with the girls for a few hours, then their friend Niki took them swimming at the new pool. I had a nice e-mail from Paul W saying thank-you for a wonderful week and also thanking Tansy for taking such great care of his children. They had a fantastic time and are already looking forward to their next trip. The sun is expected to make an appearance tomorrow morning and with a colder night we may have some good skiing up high tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Sports Report- It was another great day for Canada at the Olympics yesterday at we added another three Gold Medals to the total, which guarantees Canada to top the Gold Medal Table, and we’ll finish third overall. And what a great couple of Rugby matches in the Six-Nations with both the Italian and Irish fans left in very festive moods.
