Less freeze but still great skiing !

24 April 2013

Unfortunately we had some cloud cover over night, especially towards the Fornet, and it resulted in a lighter re-freeze, which limits options at this time of year. It was still cloudy this morning towards the Col de Galise so Chris and I headed to the sunshine in Tignes for a wonderful Sachette. It was clean with no one else around and Andy was busy with his camera again and making all the appropriate noises of someone who’s really enjoying their introduction to our stunning environment. It’s fun watching Andy’s face as he anticipates his next view and it’s refreshing witnessing someone taking it all in for the first time. I also had a new French skier, Jean-Eves, who lives in London and he had a pretty big grin throughout the morning as well. From there the freeze was dropping out so we skied the Campanules twice, which was excellent then we finished off with the piste.

Andreas and Cedric were going to try the Tarentaise Tour today but changed their minds due to the lack of freeze and had a great day going over the Col du Palet and ending up in Villaroger.

I worked this afternoon with Johnny and Shaun up at the Fornet working on some technique and then dragged Andrew out for a couple of beers in the sun at the Perdrix. (Dragged is a bit of an exaggeration as Andy was well keen and decided on a second!)

We’re off to Johnny Alpine’s for dinner tonight followed by another Champions League match, and we’re looking forward to that. We thoroughly enjoyed Bayern’s 4-0 trouncing of Barca last night and are hoping for more goals tonight.
