Not as much fresh snow as expected!

16 February 2011

We all headed up to the Fornet expecting at least 10 to 15cm’s of snow but with the exception of a few pockets here and there, very little snow fell. Chris and I went over the Col Pers directly and profited from being the first ones in with some good snow down to the Grand Torsai. Once down we bussed around to Bellevarde and skied the Borsat Nord and Familial to finish.

Meanwhile Thomas and Henry also went over the Col and TJ did a Glacier Pers. Andreas is still on piste and TJ’s daughter Ailsa skied with Laura and her cousin Emily.

I went down to Bellentre for Andy Mc’s Memorial Drinks and saw some faces I haven’t seen for a while, and it was lovely to see Andy and David’s parents Bob and Sheila, who I haven’t seen for ten years or so. Anyway, it was an emotional afternoon with David giving a great speech. Andy was quite a character and always brought a smile to people’s faces.

Gideon took some photos today that Jean has posted.

It looks as if we’ll be back in the sunshine again tomorrow and hopefully we’ll be able to sniff out some good strips of fresh snow!
