Wayne's Photos of the Day >

Wayne’s Teleconnect France wifi is currently not working.

Sadly Teleconnet France, Wayne’s internet provider is not working. PS It’s Snowing! A reminder to everyone that Andreas and Karen will be playing at the Petit Danois this afternoon from 5pm onwards. Today my team were on a mission to find a couteaux which had rolled down back to the Pays Desert yesterday. Sadly no. […]

Much Colder!!!

It was much colder overnight and the snow has started to break up and improve. In some places even the plaque from a few days ago is starting to loosen up and become more skiable but the bottom line is the sooner it snows the better! I had a nice morning with Geoff and Inga […]

Not Too Bad!!!

As you know by now conditions are pretty tough at the moment as we await some snow Friday night with the possibility of some light snow through the weekend, but until then we need to soldier on and make the best of the situation. I headed up to Glacier Pers not expecting too much but […]

Another Road Trip!!!

Frans, Jerry, Doug, Simon, Chrissie and I jumped into a couple of cars and headed down the valley for some adventure and had an excellent outing considering the conditions. We enjoyed some stunning scenery and ‘skinned’ for 55-minutes, which was a pretty good effort. We tested Doug’s ‘sniff’ from the other day with Doug and […]

A Relaxing Day!!!

Geoff, Inga, Simon, Louise and I had a pretty relaxing morning skiing some lovely piste with some off-piste mixed in while soaking up the glorious sunshine. It is getting really difficult out there and unless you are prepared to work hard for your snow there really aren’t many options at the moment. (see photos) I’ve […]

Still More Sunshine!!!

As the sun continues to beat down we had a nice morning skiing some perfectly groomed and empty pistes mixed in with some short ‘skins’ off-piste. (see photos) Chris and I headed towards Tignes and we’re very lucky to be in a quiet period because we are using the pistes more than we normally would […]

A Change Of Scenery!!!

Frans, Doug, Jerry, Charlie and I headed down the valley today for a change of scenery while being cautiously optimistic about finding some good skiing. After three weeks of sunshine with a couple of nights of 250kph mixed in and the Christmas/New Year period of track abuse as well, there isn’t much out there but […]

Potential ‘Stinker’ Avoided!!!

After three-weeks of non-stop sunshine we had a flat-light day with a few flakes floating about and without visibility we all thought that we were in for a pretty tough morning. Thomas decided he wanted to give the Fornet a go so we all rallied around to keep him company and headed towards the Col […]

One Day At A Time!!!

It’s one-day-at-a-time and every day that passes with a decent result is actually a bloody good result because we’ve worked hard in these difficult conditions and any good ‘sniff’ is greatly appreciated. (Today was 12-skins in-a-row!) We had a ‘Team Alpine’ ski towards the Crete du Genepy/Mont Roup area this morning with Chris, Andreas, Thomas, […]

An Emotional Day!!!

I’ve been keeping an eye on a line above the Sache for a little while now and decided to have a go at it today with Chris as times are tough and we really are running out of tricks. After studying some photos from yesterday we could see where we needed to enter the slope […]
