Another pretty good morning!

23 January 2011

It was slightly warmer today but still -13C in the village at 8AM. The sun continues to shine but unfortunately no snow is forecast over the next few days and we’ll have to continue to make the best of the options. Chris and my teams skied some lovely piste into Tignes before heading up to the summit of the Grande Motte. We had a run from the top before ‘skinning’ for 25-minutes to the Little Borsat West, which was excellent frisset top to bottom. From there we finished off a very satisfactory morning with an excellent Familial, where we narrowly missed being landed on by a trainee pilot practicing his take-offs and landings.

Andreas and Thomas went down to Ste. Foy for the Foglietta and after an interesting entrance that wasn’t for the faint hearted, they had a good ski on souffle followed by frisset towards the bottom. Well done boys!

Gill and I had a great ski this afternoon with the girls.. They are really coming along and it’s wonderful to watch them progress while they laugh and sing as they ski along. The weather has been perfect with bright sunny afternoons and the empty pistes have been a pleasure, although you still need eyes in the back if your head.

Gideon did a great job baby-sitting last night and played his guitar for them, which they thoroughly enjoyed. He’s given them an invitation to knock on his door if they want to learn to play a little piano or watch him in action. Hopefully he won’t regret it!

Sports Report- The Hammers picked up a big point away to Everton, especially when they played with ten-men towards the end. They gave up an equaliser in injury-time or they could have really celebrated. Tonight the Steelers take on the Jets in Pittsburgh and the Packers play the Chicago Bears. The winners will then meet in the Super Bowl, come on you Steelers!
