Welcome back Jean!

06 December 2012

Fifteen centimetres of snow fell overnight and with the wind dropping off a little the Olympique opened bang on time this morning. We savoured the best snow since opening day and after five pretty tough days everyone was in the mood. After several excellent runs Tommeuses opened, the sun came out, and Chris and I were the first ones in with Pietro and Andreas not far behind. The snow was brilliant but the visibility was even better, and it was a cracking good run that punctuated a lovely morning.

I saw Maeve skiing today and must say she was skiing beautifully. Well done Maeve! And Terry in my group did himself proud today as he’s improved enormously over the past four days. It’s his first week off-piste, and he’s dealt with flat-light, howling winds, cold temperatures, some ‘educational’ snow, and today was his reward. Bravo Terry! Jean Ribart kicked off his season this morning and it’s great to have him back, and don’t forget to check out his daily photos.

Andreas was treating his work force to a ski and lunch today and they’ve all had a rather jolly time as you can imagine. It was a celebration as they’ve all worked incredibly hard to finish a luxury apartment on time, and they delivered it to a very happy man yesterday. Good work boys! (Speaking of lunch, thanks Terry from Sylvie, Alex and I and it set me up for shoveling my terrace)

I haven’t seen or heard from JM or Olivier today but they were out there somewhere with the Ski Club.

It has clouded over and I’ve no idea about what to expect tomorrow. We need either sunshine so we can safely spread our wings a little or some new snow to give us a fresh canvas because the easily accessible, safe skiing, was well trashed today!

PS I’ve just been informed that there is a ‘severe weather warning’ for tomorrow. Blimey!
