36 Hours Extraordinaire!!!

Yesterday’s Crete/Roup excursion was brilliant and as ‘clean’ as it gets and Katie and I followed it up with a fantastic afternoon/evening. After Katie hot-waxed our skis we headed to the Garage to watch the first-half of Liverpool v Chelsea with Jerry and Ritchie and their pals. Katie has a school friend who plays for the Chelsea Girls team so she was routing for Hazard while I was obviously pulling for Salah and I was delighted when Katie decided we should stay for the second half! It got even better when she decided we should share a pizza while watching the last five holes of the Masters! It was an amazing afternoon/evening of high quality sport and even though I’m not a Tiger fan he was brilliant and has changed the face of golf again. It was a stunning and historic performance as the chase for Jack’s Major record is alive and kicking again and I was great to have Katie there to witness it.

Today was another fantastic day and Jerry and James felt like a change of scenery instead of repeating yesterday’s itinerary so we skied the Epaule du Charvet, Face du Charvet, Tour du Charvet via the Mont Blanc couloir followed by some nice spring snow above the ‘L’ and the Familial to finish another great morning. Andreas skied around the Charvet as well with Ian while Chris and Thomas both skied the Crete du Genepy followed by Mont Roup. Steven and Kaye are back in town after a five year absence with their little boy Christian who is now 11 years-old, and today was young Christian’s first-ever ‘skin’ with Thomas. It will be a day he won’t forget as the Crete/Roup itinerary is in pristine condition and what an introduction. Bravo Christian!

And then Adam G invited Katie and I to the Panoramic restaurant on the Grande Motte with his friend Mark and we had a fabulous lunch with a great bottle of wine followed by a really good ski down. Thanks ever so much Adam!

Now I’m starting ironing and tidying up as Gill and Millie arrive Wednesday night and Katie and I have a lot to do as she lives similarly to me when she gets the chance!

Tomorrow looks to be cloudy with perhaps five cm’s of snow. Wish us luck and stay tuned!
