Happy Birthday Dawn and Kaye!

05 April 2010

The wind was ferocious during the night and unfortunately did some serious damage. Fortunately the sun was out but the wind continued to be a factor until around mid-day when it finally died down. Jean Marc headed towards the Fornet thinking about a Col des Fours but he was blown off the mountain and circled back around to ‘skin’ up Mont Roup, which was excellent. After a warm-up off the Verte the Borsat was closed due to wind so the rest of us headed into Tignes via Tommeuses. From there Andreas and I went up the Funicular and skied a good Cairn before skiing a fantastic Combe des Lanches. I then skied a wonderful Col du Palet and onto the big slope at the bottom that arrives in Combe des Lanches, followed by a great shot in the bowl off the Fresse, before finishing with a ski-able Familial. After Combe des Lanches Andreas peeled off for the Chardonnet, which I imagine was lovely, then he skied the Familial as well. Chris decided on peace and quiet and had a nice morning in the Sachette before passing through the Familial on the way to lunch. It was a good team effort as everyone had a really good day when conditions were pretty tough in most places. Bravo boys! Another sunny day is forecast for tomorrow with cool temperatures for this time of year.

I’d like to thank Stephen and Kaye for taking such good care of Millie and Katie today. They took them out skiing at 9:30 and skied them to lunch at the Ferme in Le Lavachet, then delivered them home at 4 o’clock. It was a great help to Gill allowing her some much needed rest. According to Millie it was Kay’s birthday today so Happy Birthday Kaye and thank-you both very much.
