Another terriffic ski and beautiful weather!

06 April 2010

We enjoyed another stunning day with bright blue skies and comfortably warm temperatures. Andreas and I had a superb day in Tignes after a nice warm-up off the Verte and Borsat. My shoulder off the Leisse was excellent with deep cold snow and after a couple of runs there we then skied a great run off the Cairn. After bussing around Andreas skied a brilliant Sachette while I skied the Cocaine Nord into the bottom of the Sache, and we both then finished with the Familial. Meanwhile Chris’ team ‘skinned’ to the Col des Fours and David B, Julian, Mandy, Richard, and Rory were fantastic in their support of James, who was ill because of the heat. Chris said it was a great team effort and he very much appreciated everyone’s help. Jean Marc had a long day ‘skinning’ to the Col de Monet as they needed to ‘skin’ back out from the refuge as JM deemed the summer path too dangerous to attempt. Thomas is on-piste with Adam Parker’s children and he was heading off to the Borsat West this afternoon with a private client. I forgot to mention that the Marmottes are out at the Fornet and I saw a fox a few days back prancing along hunting sleepy and not-quite-with-it Marmottes. Good idea as they are pretty slow this time of year. A change of weather is on it’s way but we should see some sun in the morning, which will help enormously as tomorrow could be a tricky in-between day. Wish us luck and stay tuned!

PS. I was just watching the video we shot on Gideon’s camera today. A bit shakey but not too bad for a first attempt.
