Yet another day of wonderful quality !

14 April 2013

It was a day of transition and after today’s heat we should have some outstanding spring snow in the days to come, but today I decided to give the spring slopes and chance to set up and went for powder. I was en-route to the Glacier Pers but after testing the snow it was evident that the Pays Desert was in great shape so we had one out wide with a short ‘skin’ instead. It was excellent top-to-bottom and afterwards we headed over the Col on the easiest traverse imaginable. Once over the Col we traversed to the right and had a brilliant line all the way to the hike for the Grand Torsai. From the Torsai down we took the ‘funky’ route, which was clean and atmospheric. After the past few days of exceptional skiing I wasn’t expecting as much today, but we were all pleasantly surprised with another morning of fantastic quality! (See photos)

Chris was on piste today while Andreas was scouting out the state of things in Tignes, and Thomas and Henry were off this morning.

I’m on my way out to do some chores before watching footie at Geoff’s followed by drinks at Catherine and Patrick’s.

As for the weather, spring has arrived and after three stunning days of sunshine another week of clear blue skies are forecast!
