Chris and Suzanne ‘skinned’ up to the top of the Signal poma yesterday. They’ve been out everyday since arriving a few days ago and are gradually walking themselves into shape. Andreas and Thomas also skied the Combe du Signal yesterday so it was an ‘Alpine’ hotspot!
Andreas posted a short video on the Alpine Facebook page while Chris posted several excellent photos on the blog. One shows some of the avalanche damage to the Vallon bubble lift that occurred during the last storm. Another shot of the Fornet village from above clearly shows the Sahara sand that blew in during the last foehn. And there is also a great shot of the Grande Motte from afar. Thanks Chris!
I’m waiting to watch the Woman’s Super-G race from the World Championships but the start has been delayed by fog. It’s great listening to Matt C who is commentating. Great work Matt!
Stay tuned for more news and photos soon!
PS And a big Happy Birthday to Liz!
