About five centimetres fell overnight
23 March 2008
About five centimetres fell overnight but the good news was a very cold night, which dried out the snow considerably, followed by excellent visibility this morning. We all headed to the Fornet where I started with three Combe du Signal’s, which got better as we moved across the bowl. The third was outstanding and Pietro spent most of his morning in the Combe before joining Andreas, Chris and I on the Glacier. The Pay Desert was also fantastic with less snow, which worked well as the gentler slopes wouldn’t have skied well with to much depth. All in all it was another great morning at the Fornet and an amazing improvement in snow quality over yesterday. This afternoon I had an initiation-type off-piste session with King Prawn’s brother Adrian and his mate Al (Chris had Greg and his son Alex) and we all went up to the Motte to be stunned by the snow quality upstairs. It was superb! The snow seems to have dried out throughout the day and if the wind is kind tonight, we should have another wonderful day tomorrow.
Sports Report- I was well pleased with the Hammers 1-1 draw away to Everton yesterday and Man U really turned the screws on the Premiership contenders with a 3-0 win over Liverpool. The Chelsea vs Arsenal match later is massive with the loser being almost out of it. Well done to Sunderland for a huge three-points away at Villa and Reading also recorded a potential Premiership-status-saving win over Birmingham.
