West Ham 3 Liverpool 1!

27 February 2011

What a day! West Ham 3 Liverpool 1. Wonderful! As for the skiing we had a fantastic morning with just enough light to take advantage of the 10 to 25cm’s of fresh winter powder. I was travelling light with John E, Gideon and birthday-boy Stephen C, who was celebrating his 65th in style. We started with the Fontaine Froide, because it was in the lee and had a light bulb above it, and it wasn’t a bad start with a bit of ‘crunch’ underfoot here and there. From there we skied the Borsat Nord from the top in good winter powder, the Combe des Lanches, off the Genepy on the Motte and then my funky Familial to finish. It was a great morning and Happy Birthday to you Stephen! (Gideon was snapping away so check Jean’s photos of the day)

Meanwhile Andreas wanted to get his feet back in the snow after having yesterday off so he invited Claire from the Blue Note and Sophie for a little ski. They skied the Fontaine Froide and Borsat with us before Sophie had to ‘skin’ over the Col de Fresse as she doesn’t have a pass for Tignes. Andreas and Claire then hiked up for the Chardonnet but Andreas didn’t like the accumulation in the couloir so they skied back down and took the Familial home.

Sports Report- I spent the afternoon at the pool with the girls before sweating through the last 20 minutes following the Hammers game on the internet. At 2-0 I was comfortable but at 2-1 I feared it was going to slip away. Cole’s goal to make it 3-1 was the cause of great celebration, which Millie and Katie don’t quite understand yet. And what a game of rugby yesterday! I watched it a Bananas with Ricky, Frank from Top Ski and a good mix of French and English, making for a great atmosphere.

We should see some more snow off-and-on over the next few days.
