Wow! What a lovely day and great ski!

11 March 2010

Hallelujah! The sun was out in full force and we savoured a warm beautiful day with clear blue skies. The wind had also died right down to a very gentle breeze and after the last few days everyone’s spirits were soaring. Chris, Thomas and I decided on a little walk and headed for Mont Roup. The ski down from the Borsat was lovely with some nice creamy snow and it was a relatively easy ‘skin’ of about 35-minutes. The snow is starting to turn but we played with the expositions and managed some excellent powder of about 20cm’s for the top two-thirds. From there we skied strips of soufflé doux for a cracking good result. Chris and I then skied the Arcelle on supporting snow with a few centimetres on top and my team followed that up by skiing similar snow in the Marmottes where we skied the big slopes down through the couloirs, while Chris, Tejina and Suzanne came around the other way from the Marmottons. (Not too sure how Thomas finished his morning.) Although there is very little deep-ish snow about the skiing has been very good. The supporting winded snow with a few centimetres on top has been similar to spring skiing, where you can ski fairly quickly on the gentle slopes as well as take on some impressive slopes. All very enjoyable. Catherine skied very well today and Emmett finished off an excellent 6-days. (Both are here on a Medical Conference and I can vouch for both of them, honest!) It looks as though we should have some sun again tomorrow and that would be a welcome start to the day! Stay tuned!

PS Great photos today, thanks Jean!
