It was slightly warmer today

19 December 2007

It was slightly warmer today and Chris and I thought we’d ‘skin’ up to ski the Sache from the top before they open the lift either tomorrow or the next day. From the Aiguille Rouge it took about 40-plus minutes and it was wonderful having the place to ourselves, knowing that no one would be following us in. The skiing was excellent on top, although we needed to search out the best fall-lines to avoid areas of plaque. The snow mid-decent was even better before arriving near the bottom where we really needed to look around to find good strips amongst some tougher snow. Red Ray skied particularly well today as did Adrian, and John Ellis put in a top performance yesterday. Bravo boys! We didn’t arrive back to Les Tufs until 1:30 and Chris and I quickly ate some pasta before teaching again at 2 o’clock. I’m not too sure where JM and Oli were touring today but Andreas was busy training Ski Hosts. The high-pressure remains and sun is forecast for the next week with the east wind featuring over the next couple of days.
