A stunning day with fantastic skiing!

07 March 2012

It was back to blue cloudless skies again with warmer temperatures today and everyone had a wonderful morning. Chris decided on taking his new boys on a walk so they ‘skinned’ up to the Col des Fours and had a brilliant ski, which Chris rated as 10/10. Pretty good going I’d say! Meanwhile Andreas and Thomas headed up to the Fornet and went directly over the Col to get the best of the powder there and had a great ski before exiting through the gorge. They then circled back around to ski the Pays Desert to finish of their morning.

I headed the other way and started off with a good warm-up off the Mont Blanc piste before an excellent Lavachet. From there we headed to the Sachette and ran into Gill, Millie and Katie for a little piste bash with a couple of chairlift rides. The Sachette was very good top-to-bottom with good winter powder up top and through the middle sections followed by warmer soft snow on the spring-side at the bottom. We finished off a lovely morning with a big banana-shaped Familial to get maximum-turns out of the slope.

Andreas had a family ski with his children this afternoon while I had a homework session with my girls. Suzanne has been back skiing with Chris the past few mornings and Gill will be back in action tomorrow.

The forecast is mixed for tomorrow so we’ll wait and see and get on with whatever comes our way.

Have a look at the McMinn website which features a story about my hip op and rehab.

Sports Report- It was a great effort from the Gunners last night and what a shame they couldn’t get a fourth goal. And tonight the Hammers have a big match and a chance to take over first place. Come on West Ham!
