Good to the last drop!

06 March 2011

It was another beautiful day and with the avalanche risk at 4/5 towards the Italian border, meaning the Fornet, I decided to leave it alone and ski in Tignes again. We had a great morning skiing, starting above the Mont Blanc piste, then the Lower Borsat en-route to the Grande Motte. There we had some wonderful snow and good ambience skiing the Combe skiers right of my shoulder. We then circled back around and skied Wayne’s Shoulder before ‘skinning’ up for fifteen-minutes for a couple of good pitches under the Borsat West, and we finished off with good familial towards the Alti-port. Jean R returned yesterday and skied this morning. Welcome back Jean!

Andreas had his girls team from the Blue Note again and he took them for a walk to Mont Roup, where they had an excellent ski. Andreas said that Mont Roup will be finished after today’s heat and where we skied off the Motte will also be cooked, so we squeezed the last drop out before we’re forced to go north up at the Fornet. (We’ll probably be up there now until it snows again.)

Chris had the day off so he and Suzanne went for a ski up at the Fornet and had some great snow as well. They ran into some friends from Australia who feature in some of today’s photos, and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Gill and Kiera toook the girls out for little Anna’s birthday ski before having lunch at the Perdrix. What a life and happy 6th birthday Anna!

More sun is forecast for tomorrow and we’ll be able to find some great skiing for a few days while waiting for another top up.

Sports Report- Well done Liverpool for sprucing up the title race with a convincing 3-1 win over United and come on Tottenham, who I never cheer for except when playing fellow relegation candidates.
