‘Desperate Dan’ Stuff!!!

With perhaps a little relief in sight tomorrow night I used up some of my ‘last-minute-Desperate-Dan’ tricks today and managed to ski some nice soft frisset before turning to a little spring and then some lovely chalky winter snow in the steeps to finish off a pretty good morning. (See photos) I had a father-and-son team (Ian and Max) from Boston along for their first experience with us this morning and I think they had a brilliant time! Fingers crossed that it snows, even 10cm’s although we need a lot more than that, but we desperately need a fresh canvas as it’s past the point of being funny out there! Bravo again to all the boys for continuing to make the most of a tough situation.

Chris was at the Fornet today while Andreas headed down to St Foy and Thomas is in Villaroger, and I haven’t seen Henry for ages!

I had a great time in the Danois last night with Wils and Rosie along with Jamie and Lois. I haven’t met Wils girlfriend Lois before and she’s a cracking girl and I’m looking forward to seeing them all at the Pigs tomorrow for après-ski starting at 5:30. It’s that time of the week when a really start to look forward to the Guinea Pigs tomorrow followed by Karen and Andreas on Friday. Both gigs are fantastic and shouldn’t be missed so I look forward to seeing you all there! It was also Florence’s birthday yesterday and she was celebrating with Tchenko, Karen, Uffa and a few other so happy belated birthday Florence!

I’m wearing my Hammers shirt this afternoon not that it will do much good as we take in City tonight away. Blimey, that’s a tough one but it would be wonderful to do Liverpool a favour. Come on boys! Stay tuned!

PS Good luck to Millie and all her pals as they started their GCSE mock exams this week!
