The first tough morning in quite some time!

12 March 2011

After what seems weeks of unbroken sunshine we had a windy grey day as we await some fresh snow. I had my friend Pete along for the first time in ages, along with his two friends, both Pete’s who I haven’t seen for even longer, and we made the most of a tough day. We skied excellent pistes down to the Palafour en route to the Sachette, which was decent, then skied pistes back to La Daille, where we ran into Millie and her/Gill’s friend Niki. Niki and Millie joined our group for a couple of good hard runs on the piste for a 1:15 finish. (It will be interesting to see what Jean comes up with photo-wise today!)

Andreas skied similar runs with Chrissy, Annie and Jeremy while Chris was skiing with Fiona M and friends for the day.

I had a nice email from Maeve and Adrian who are skiing next week with Pietro in the Dolomites and Chris E left this afternoon after a fantastic week to join Olivier and Jean Marc touring in the Queyras. Good luck and great skiing to all!

It’s blowing and trying to snow but the rest of the day will be spent watching rugby, FA Cup football and dining with Geoff and Inga. Stay tuned for hopefully some powder news tomorrow!

PS. I ran into Richard H last night and he’s on great form and really enjoying his piste skiing. He’s getting stronger and is looking forward to getting back off-piste soon. Bravo Richard!
