What a morning!

08 January 2012

It was just Chris skiing with Greg, James and Suzanne and myself with Chrissy and Jean and we all had a brilliant morning. About 5 to 10cm’s of fresh snow fell to give us a nice cushion and we had moments of sunshine and great visibility during the morning. They were slow getting the Olympique running so we started on the lower Bellevarde chair and had some lovely snow on-piste to warm-up with. From there we skied off the Verte en-route to a superb Familial complete with ambience at the bottom when we ran into a misty fog. We then skied some good strips in the Campanules before skiing the Combe des Lanches, which was very good up top and fantastic lower down. It was time then to head upstairs and my team skied outstanding snow off the Genepy piste while Chris’ team skied similar on the Cairn-side. By the time we arrived on the summit of Les Tufs Familial was in a fog so we skied bits and pieces to finish off a wonderful morning. Gill took Millie and Katie out and both girls are totally into finding fresh snow and leaving their own tracks. I wonder where they got that from?

It closed back in around lunchtime so hopefully it will stay that way and help preserve some snow for tomorrow.

Sports Report- It was nice to see the Calgary Flames bounce back from their 9-0 drubbing at the hands of Henry’s Bruins with a good win last night. The Saints looked good against the Lions and my Steelers play in Denver today. Come on boys! City vs United should be fun as well!

Please help!
