A morning of initiation!

23 January 2013

We were lucky again today as we had decent visibility this morning before the skies clouded over around 1PM. It’s threatening to snow at the moment (4PM) and hopefully we’ll have a few flakes of snow by morning.

I skied with some real characters this morning who’ve known each other since they were five-years-old growing up in Newcastle. Jonathan, Steve and Cam were skiing off-piste for the first time and we skied off the Verte, in the Borsat and the Familial, and mixed it up with some technique on the piste. The boys did really well and hopefully they’ll be back for more! (see photos)

Meanwhile, Chris and Andreas were heading towards the Sache/Sachette with Chris skiing the Borsat while Andreas skied the Little Lavachet en-route. Andreas finished up with Mickey’s Ears while Chris skied the Familial. Andreas has had a couple of young Vikings with him over the past couple of days who are here for the season. They were surprised and impressed by the way the ‘Alpine’ tracks helped to improve their skiing, and they had so much fun yesterday they brought two of their pals along today. Good news and well done Andreas!

West Ham are in action away to Arsenal tonight and I’d be over the moon with a point. It’s been a tough run over the past ten games or so and the bottom three aren’t nearly so far behind. It’s a murderous league that takes no prisoners and I must admit to feeling a little edgy. Come on boys!
