First Face of the season!

23 January 2012

It was cold enough overnight to lighten up the snow a little and some of yesterday’s ‘educational’ snow was pretty pleasant this morning. Chris and I skied off the Verte en route to a good Borsat before skiing a great slope under the Fresse chair. We then worked our way over to the Sache and the entrance to the Sache is a mess, not as messy as the Col Pers mind you, but still a mess. Anyway, after negotiating our way in, the top slope was great, considering the wind, and the rest of the way was pretty good but not as well protected as it normally is.

Meanwhile Andreas had a great ski with Olivia, Peter and Robert as they skied the Face du Charvet, Tour du Charvet, Combe du Signal and the Grand Vallon. Nice one! Thomas was also working today but I’m not too sure what he skied as he had a boarder with him, which limits the options. I didn’t see Henry this morning so he’s probably spending some time with his family as Nancy is visiting from Boston.

I spent the afternoon skiing with 4 year-olds from the local school. There were some real characters in the group, including Tallia who shot off across the Rond Point on her own at the end of the session. Mama Mia!

Tomorrow’s weather could be iffy as rumour has it we’ll have some cloud cover without new snow. Bummer! I’m remaining positive and cheering sunshine without new snow as a cloudy day without good light won’t be easy.

Sports Report- There were two fantastic American Football games yesterday with the winners making it to the Super Bowl. Marty’s New York Giants upset the San Francisco 49-ers in a great game while Michael Rosen’s New England Patriots beat the Baltimore Ravens in a thriller. Good luck Michael as I’m an AFC fan but what a story the Giants have been! (Check highlights on
