Back to winter powder!

27 March 2010

Today was the opposite of yesterday as far as the visibility went when we skied in a white-out only to have it clear in the afternoon. This morning the light was more than adequate and Thomas, Chris and I profited with a stunning morning up at the Fornet. Chris and I arrived to find the Signal Poma still closed so we traversed onto the shoulder in the Combe du Signal for a lovely warm-up en-route to the Pissaillas. On the Glacier we had a superb Combe du 3300, and an even better two runs in the Pays Desert. Meanwhile, Thomas had a couple of great runs in the Grand Vallon and Combe du Signal before joining us on the Glacier where he skied a Combe du 3300 and a Pays Desert. All the teams then went over the Col for a fantastic Col Pers and it was wonderful to ski 25 to 30cm’s of winter powder again. It started snowing around 2 o’clock when Ray and I took Millie and Katie for a little ski. Katie was singing, “I’m in the powder and having lots of fun”. Bless her! Anyway, it was a brilliant day, except of course for the dismal West Ham result, and tomorrow is shaping up for another good one!

Thanks very much to Louise at Bonne Sante who has been looking after Gill. At last today she is feeling a bit better, and looking a bit straighter ! She’s a brilliant Physio and runs a great practice so don’t hesitate to contact her if you’re in need.
