Time for a snow-dance!

14 February 2012

It was another cold but beautiful day and I’ve never seen so many people sporting boot-warmers. Like Crocs, they aren’t very pretty but they are jolly useful! Anyway, I headed towards Tignes with three different possible plans and ended up going for Plan B, which worked out to be a very good morning. We warmed-up under the Borsat chair and into the Lower Borsat before taking the Funicular. Plan A didn’t look so hot so we skied down my shoulder than had some lovely soft snow across the meadows to where we put on our ‘skins’ to climb up under the Borsat West. The first pitch was excellent but the lower section wasn’t as good although we did leave some good tracks. We finished off in the Familial skiing nice chalky snow all the way to the bottom.

Andreas headed out towards the Balme de l’Ours and I’m not too sure what they found but they’ll have had some good pitches and last I heard from Henry he was ‘skinning’ towards the Crete du Genepy. Thomas and Chris are still both on piste with families but Chris has had some initiation off-piste the past two afternoons.

I had a good run-around with Gill, Millie, Katie and Laura although Millie had verbal diarrhoea and drove me nuts most of the afternoon. Still, it was good fun and the pistes at La Daille are in brilliant condition.

Hopefully we’ll get some snow soon but I’m not too sure. Stay tuned!

Sports Report- It’s a massive, massive match at Upton Park tonight with the Hammer taking on second-place Southampton. A win would put us 4-points clear at the top with a game in hand, but a loss would have the boys drop back into second-place. Come on you Hammers!
