Well done Millie!

17 March 2010

Considering it hasn’t snowed in ages and with all the wind we’ve endured the skiing is amazingly good. There is a good mix of very pleasant soufflé doux, soufflé dur, supporting snow with a few centimetres on top, the odd pitch to lay proper tracks in, and with each passing day a little more spring snow. Today Chris and I skied the Borsat en-route to an impressively steep and atmospheric run of soufflé doux on the big face of the Balme. From there we bussed around to ski a lovely Sachette with some pitches of soft snow and spring snow towards the bottom followed by a very nice steep pitch entering the Familial. Gill and I had a great afternoon skiing off-piste with Millie this afternoon. We strapped a ‘beep’ onto her and skied the Super L, a shot off the Laisinant, the Grand Vallon, and then the Pays Desert. Bravo Millie as the Grand Vallon skiers-right was especially impressive! Jean R went down to see Clive this afternoon and David and Chrissy are going down tomorrow to visit on their way home. Another sunny day is forecast for tomorrow and after debating whether we should leave the resort or not, we’ve decided to stay in town. Stay tuned!
