Blimey, Good Skiing!!!

After an optimistic reconnaissance sortie yesterday I decided to take advantage of the last sunny day to ski some great slopes with soufflĂ© doux and mix in some fantastic piste skiing. The pistes are groomed to perfection with a good grip and are totally empty after the holidays so you can really let rip and it’s my kind of piste skiing. We skied the Kern, off the Borsat, the ‘Wall’ in Tignes, the Sachette and the Familial and flew about on the piste in-between.

Meanwhile, Andreas was heading to the Col des Ves, Chris skied the Borsat, Familial, Tour du Charvet and Kern and Thomas and TJ were also in action this morning.

High winds and grey skies are forecast for the morning with only a few centimetres of fresh snow so we’ll be missing the sunshine tomorrow. A little more snow is forecast for Wednesday and if we see a total of 10cm’s we’ll be lucky and also grateful as 10cm’s blown about by the wind will help enormously and hopefully be worth putting up with a couple of tricky days for. Fingers crossed and stay tuned!

PS I’m looking for someone in the Guildford area who could kindly bring out some medication for me between next week and January 20th. It needs to be frigerated so would need to go in the hold in a small cooler bag, which is a pain because I know many of you come with only hand-luggage. If you can help please let me know so that Gill can organise getting the drugs to you. Also, is anyone named Kevin expecting to ski with us from February 11th until the 14th? If so please get in touch with Louise at the office.

PPS And a big hello to Millie’s school friends Connie and Josh who both read my blog and keep Millie abreast of what I’m up to!
