The beat goes on

09 April 2008

The beat goes on as another tricky looking morning turned out to be another really good session on the mountain. After two great days on the Motte Chris and I decided on a trip to the Fornet for a change of scenery and after looking at the Pays Desert we headed over the Col. There wasn’t a track on the mountain, the snow was excellent and we had just enough visibility to really let go and enjoy it. Chris and Tejina circled back around for a second run while my team skied two good Grand Vallon’s. Robert, Caroline and Casper, who are skiing with Olivier, are having a fantastic initiation and we’d like to mention Robert and his young son Oscar who are also doing the business. Gillian T received a phone call at the end of a wonderful morning with news that she had won the ‘Journalist-of-the-Year’ award. Well done Gillian! (Slightly over-shadows the prestigious ‘skier-of-the-morning’ award) And what a football match last night! Back and forth, both sets of fans laughing and crying, a 23-milllion pound striker strutting his stuff, Peter Crouch doing himself proud, a run by Theo Walcott that hasn’t been seen since Giggs’ masterful goal years ago, and Gerrard stepping up under huge pressure. Ahh, the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Brilliant! It’s drizzling in town, which means snow up top so we won’t worry about the weather too much and hope for visibility tomorrow.
