Another excellent morning!

23 March 2011

The wind died down and wasn’t really a factor today, although it did pick up again this afternoon. Chris and I started off the Mont Blanc piste for some good warm-up powder turns followed by a piste cruise down to the Funicular to the Motte. The plan was to ski the Rosolin but it looked as if it had taken the wind so we changed to plan ‘B’ and skied some good variations off my shoulder en route to ‘skinning’ up the Little Borsat West. There we found some excellent snow without a track in sight and we finished with some spring snow lower down followed by the Familial. (Check Jean’s photos)

Thomas was back in action today and I think he skied in Tignes, as did Andreas. Andreas skied with Alistair and Peter and their sons, both Dave, and they had a great ski mixing spring with powder on the front-side of the Palafour and in the Sache. Andreas finished with the Familial as well and there were big smiles all around at the end of the morning. Alistair and Peter skied originally with Giles and have skied many times in the past with Jean Marc, and it was lovely to see them back and introducing their boys to ‘Alpine’.

Gill and I skied with the girls this afternoon, along with Dan and Denise, and the girls are still out enjoying après-ski with D&D. Thanks you two! And thanks to Laura for entertaining us last night as well. The girls are having such a good time here this winter, enjoying not only the skiing and school, but the incredible social life as well!

I’m having internet problems again so if you e-mail and don’t get a reply, I’m not ignoring you and probably won’t have received it.

More sun is coming our way tomorrow with a chance of snow forecast for Sunday.

PS : Can’t believe it, the bus queues were so bad at La Daille this afternoon that Dan, Denise and the girls walked all the way home in their ski boots ! (Well Katie had a piggy back, good effort Denise !)
