Afternoon excursion to the Motte

24 March 2008

After yesterday’s afternoon excursion to the Motte we knew we’d have fantastic skiing up there if the visibility was decent, and luckily we awoke to un-forecasted clear skies. It was -14C in the village this morning and the cold temperatures lightened up the snow even more, turning what was un-skiable two days ago into wonderful deep snow today, giving us another ‘maximum-turn’ morning of wonderful quality. It was a ‘top-ten’ outing sending David R and Richard H home on a high. Chris said Richard skied brilliantly today and he savoured his big beer at Les Tufs with his always present big smile. Thank you to Julia and Andy for a superb Easter Egg Hunt yesterday afternoon, which was incredibly well organised and thoroughly enjoyed by the children. Also thanks to Geoff and Inga for an excellent drinks/supper party last night. TJ arrives on Thursday and we’re all looking forward to seeing him back in the mountains and on his skis again. It is now snowing (at 7:30PM) and blowing a gale so who knows what tomorrow will bring?
