Not Too Bad!!!

It was one of those fairly ‘low-expectation’ mornings with flat-light and very little new snow to work with but the visibility turned out to be pretty good for most of the morning and the wind managed to blow in a welcomed cushion of snow. Chris was back on deck after his week with the Ski Club and he gave James (who had booked an initiation private) the full monty this morning. He skied the Borsat, hiked him up into the Chardonnet, skied the Tourne, then a rare trip to Jardini, and a Familial to finish. Bravo you two! (I managed a couple of shots of James) Andreas and I skied similar to Chris except Andreas finished in the Table Couloir. Thomas was in action but the gave the Tourne a miss and continued into the Sachette. I thought it was an excellent morning and thoroughly enjoyed by all!

It was another great gig by Karen and Andreas at the Danois last night. It was a shame that the bar was a little quieter last night so there wasn’t as much energy in the place for them to feed off but I thought they dealt with that extremely well and put on a brilliant show. I’m still wondering why some of the die-hard ‘Pigs’ fans haven’t come out to give them a try because you don’t know what you’re missing! (It’s not like you’d be cheating on your partner!) Anyway, excellent show and I’m looking forward to next week already!

We’re expecting 30cm’s of snow tomorrow but unfortunately not until the afternoon and into the night, which means we won’t have new snow to work with tomorrow to go along with the flat-light. Fingers crossed and hope for the best.

It’s a big weekend of sport with the Six Nations in full swing as well as some big premiership Football matches. Come on you Hammers!

And a big Happy Birthday to Jerry, who is having one of his best ski weeks ever! Have a great evening Jerry! And Happy Birthday to Liz as well. Have a fantastic holiday! Stay tuned!
