Wayne's Photos of the Day >


If it wasn’t a ‘stinker’ it was pretty jolly close this morning. It was never going to be an easy morning as the refreeze was half of the night before, the sky was grey and the foehn wind was gusting between 60 to 80 km/h towards the Fornet. Chris and I headed up to the Motte to avoid any ‘quick-snow’ at lower altitudes and to get further away from the wind but there really wasn’t very much to do. We skied some good pistes before ‘skinning’ up to the Little Borsat West where we surprisingly skied about 20 powder turns before turning to spring exposures. It was a bit of a weird morning where we had two different cases of binding problems with ice getting into the pin mechanism, poor Richard had a nasty head-plant-into-a-forward-roll crash and basically we didn’t get many breaks and everyone was happy with a 12:30 finish! Well done to everyone who was there this morning and fingers crossed for better conditions tomorrow!

The Hammers were jobbed again yesterday due to no VAR and I really hope the Premiership title isn’t decided on a shocking refereeing decision because West Ham have had three of them in the last week, which have cost us between 3 and 5 points. Stay tuned!

PS Brooke Henderson made my day as the 21-year-old Canadian won the Lotte Championship for the second year in a row in Hawaii. It was the 8th LPGA title that she’s won in her young career! Bravo Brooke and Oh Canada!!!

PPS The Danois season-ending BBQ is tomorrow (Monday) afternoon at 4 o’clock followed by Ed Mullit and Jamie. I’d be there except I’m off to Geneva to take the girls to the airport. Have fun!!!
