Jean's last ski of the season!

19 April 2011

It was a little warmer today but we still had a good freeze and everyone enjoyed a great morning. It was Jean’s last morning and he chose Tignes so we headed up to the Motte for some excellent skiing. We skied Katie’s route first but instead of crossing the rocks we continued down and ‘skinned’ out, then we skied my shoulder and continued across the flats at the bottom before another short ‘skin’, next up was a perfect Familial before finishing up off the Mont Blanc piste. I’ll miss Jean and we wish him great diving and golf, but we’ll pester him with photos over the next ten days or so.

Meanwhile, Chris and Andreas had a fantastic morning in the Sachette, where they skied all the way to the bottom before jumping from snow patch to snow patch on the Sache piste. I’m not too sure what Thomas skied this morning but the skiing continues to please, even with the lack of snow.

Andreas and Peter C ‘skinned’ up the Face du Bellevarde this morning as they’re in training for Mont Blanc next week. Top effort boys!

Rob, Rosie, Millie and I had another superb afternoon up at the Fornet skiing the Grand Vallon three times. We skied the steepest slope out there and it was really good fun and a fine finish to our daddy-daughter season.

I’m off to the airport tomorrow afternoon so it may be a short update. Stay tuned!
