A fantastic start to April!

01 April 2012

We’re finally expecting some snow mid-week but in the meantime we’re enjoying the sunshine and fantastic spring snow. This morning Chris and I took our teams to the Sachette for some lovely powder up top followed by great spring snow towards the bottom. We then skied ‘toothy rock’ into the couloir followed by another go in the couloir from the Palafour chair. I finished with a piste cruise and Chris went into the Familial where he managed to break his ski in half! Bummer JC!

Meanwhile Andreas skied the sunny-side of the Foglietta with Mark and Holly and I can only imagine that it was excellent. The rest of the boys had the morning off but will be back in action tomorrow.

This afternoon I took the girls out with their cousins Wils and Rosie and their Uncle Rob and we skied off-piste all afternoon. We started off with an excellent run in the Marmottons, and into the Marmottes, before skiing the Grand Vallon right down to the Crozets for a couple of beers and some cokes. Cracking stuff and impressive slopes for such little people. Some French tourists were watching the girls checking their beeps at David’s Memorial and had smiles on their faces as we entered the Grand Vallon. (They were probably thinking “What an idiot” like the people yesterday when we were skiing the narrow gulley under the Fresse chair) Check today’s photos and stay tuned for more news tomorrow.
