Sunshine, a change of scenery, and great skiing!

27 March 2013

For the first time in ages we had clear blue skies leaving everyone pumped and I was feeling like John Denver arriving at the Gourmandine. After several days of flat light and skiing in Tignes it was time for a change of sector and Chris and I headed up to the Fornet. It hasn’t snowed quite as much that way as in Tignes, but we had some lovely skiing starting with some good warm-up turns off the Laisinant before had a great run off the shoulder in the Combe du Signal. From there we had a nice run in the Pays Desert with a ten-minute ‘skin’ before going back-side over the Col. Chris had to work so he peeled out while I took Sylvie and Richard from his group and skied a Grand Vallon way out towards Millie’s Run and down to the valley floor.

Meanwhile Andreas ‘skinned’ up to the Glacier Suspendu (Terre Rouge) and they had a wonderful morning without anyone else around and Thomas had a private family group starting in Tignes, and I’m not too sure what he skied.

I took Millie and Katie out this afternoon, accompanied by Red Ray and after racing about we skied some nice off-piste in the Jardin du Borsat (see photos).

Henry tried to sneak a birthday in under the radar yesterday so Happy Belated Birthday Henry and Happy Birthday today to Gill’s pal Jane, who we’ve just had drinks at the Taverne with.

Sorry for the brief update but it’s been a busy day. Stay tuned for more news tomorrow.
