A blast from the past!

03 March 2013

The sun was shining again today and I had the pleasure of skiing with Clive and Richard H for the first time in several years, and the boys did really well. Penny came along as my assistant and we had a cracking good ski, both on and off-piste. We ‘skinned’ to the Little Borsat West, which was excellent and well worth the walk, and Clive was extremely pleased to be off-piste once again. It was a real blast from the past as we used to ski some pretty serious off-piste together dating back 25-years, and it was great to be in their company again. I remember one in early December about 15 years ago when I opened the Face du Charvet with Richard in about 40cm’s of ultra-light powder. We were the first group onto the Face that season and the team laid a perfect set of tracks. The Face du Charvet with one set of ‘Alpine’ tracks is quite a sight and it was a special day to say the least!

Meanwhile, Chris ‘skinned’ to the Glacier Pers, TJ and his pal Russell headed up to the Lores, and Andreas had an all-day private and started out in the Fornet then worked his way back to Tignes via the Borsat West from the top.

Gill and I skied with the girls again this afternoon, but you can hardly call it skiing as they seem to spend most of their time in the air! Millie is skiing incredibly fast but I wish she’d think about her technique a bit more, and Katie has a lovely stance with good hands and arms positioning, which is fairly unusual for such small children. Bravo Katie!

Needless to say I was over the moon with the Hammers 1-0 win at Stoke yesterday. It was three point that were much needed and I can now relax until next Sunday when we play Chelsea away.

More sun is forecast for the next couple of days before a chance of snow from Wednesday through to Friday. But who knows?
