Wayne's Photos of the Day >

Off-Piste In Val d’Isere!!!

I started my Saturday with my regular Zoom Pilates session with Catherine from Toulouse. During our workout I took a couple of photos thinking there might not be too many photo ops today, but boy was I wrong!

Andreas was itching to get back into the mountains so he  ‘skinned’ up to the Grand Vallon this morning. It was necessary to start from the car park and from the bottom the Vallon is a long way away! Andreas made it in just over two hours at a cracking good pace, and needless to say he had the place to himself! The snow was excellent, especially up high where it was still smooth. At this time of year the lower slopes become bumpy due to the melt-freeze cycle creating dimples which get bigger and bigger, but who cares as it’s a small price to pay for your own private mountain!

Andreas has posted a video on Facebook and I believe John Yates-Smith will feature Andreas on his ‘photo-of-the-day’.

Bravo Andreas and make the most of it!

Stay tuned!
