A slightly better freeze led to a change of scenery!

18 April 2013

We had a slightly better freeze, although it was still very light, and after two consecutive mornings around Bellevarde and the Fornet it was time for a change. Andreas and I headed to Tignes and dived into the Sachette for the first time in ages, and it was clean with lovely spring snow. By the time was exited the Sachette we needed to jump forward a couple of expositions and gain some altitude so we tried way out in the Campanules, which was excellent. I circled around for a second run while Andreas tested out the Familial, which was also terrific so Andreas came around for a second helping while my team finished our morning with the Familial. For a light freeze it was fantastic skiing and although we flirted with ‘quick-snow’ a couple of times we stayed afloat and enjoyed a great morning. (Chris was on piste today while Thomas had the morning off.)

The weather is forecast to change with clouds and rain in the village tomorrow before turning colder with snow on Saturday. Some fresh snow would be nice but I must admit to having enjoyed this sunny spell over the past week!

Needless to say I was well pleased with West Ham’s performance last night. Van Persie was off-side (so I’m told) but any honest Hammer fan would have taken a point before kick-off so I’m happy to be picking up points and edging closer to safety!

Stay tuned for more news, weather and sports tomorrow.
