Surprise, Surprise!!!

Well, we got our dusting of snow and what a difference it made! And, we had a little bit of sun early on to go with it.

After a pleasantly surprising test off the Verte, Chris and I totally changed our minds, both tactically and sector-wise. (I’m in ‘code-mode’ but I’m sure Simon will work it out.) We had a cracking first run and profited from the fresh cushion, visibility, and ambiance.

Unfortunately thick cloud cover rose up quickly from the valley below and by 11 o’clock we were engulfed in white-out conditions. It took the wind out of our sails as it looked like it was going to clear and instead of bright sunshine we were in a fog at times.

Anyway, the good news is that the dusting of snow has improved conditions and our options are definitely opening up again.

Stay tuned!

PS My skis were a million times better after Jean Sports sorted them out for me!
