What A Brilliant Morning!!!

After yesterday’s storm we were promised some sunshine this morning and after a murky start the skies cleared and it turned out to be a stunning day. We had some pockets of fabulous snow that had been protected from the wind while skiing some nice pitches of wind-compressed snow as well, which is a great […]

Tough But Good!!!

We awoke to high winds and flat-light but at least it snowed about 5 cm’s overnight and the fresh cushion helped enormously. With poor visibility and not enough snow to fill in the tracks a cover tricky snow we skied a combination of piste mixed with some off-piste shots here and there. It continued to […]

A Super Morning!!!

It was our last sunny day before some wind and hopefully snow move in and we took full advantage of it. The Aiguille Percee sector has been closed so Andreas, Chris and I decided to ‘skin’ up from the Palafour to access the Sache and it turned out to be a brilliant ski with great […]

A Great Gig!!! !!!!

We were planning a trip towards the Aiguille Percee today as that sector was suppose to open but unfortunately they weren’t ready and we needed to come up with something else. With early morning cloud cover and flat-light the sky was clearest towards the Fornet so we headed that way with the promise of the […]

Another Cracking Day!!!

The sun was undiluted today and Chris, Andreas and I headed up to the Fornet for a couple of short ‘skins’ and considering the overnight wind the during the past two nights the snow quality was excellent. We had some great pockets of frisset and some pitches where the snow had taken a little wind […]

A Total Change Of Plan!!!

My plan was to head up to the Fornet for a couple of little ‘skins’ but the Vallon bubbles were shut down due to technical issues, and because the Pyramid chair isn’t yet running we needed to do a U-turn and come up with something else. We skied a combination of off-piste and piste and […]

10 out-of 10!!!

Andreas and I teamed up this morning (I was going to say hooked up but the girls tell that in modern language that now has a sexual connotation!) and we took our teams for a ‘double-skin’ and were rewarded with wonderful snow and the mountain to ourselves. Simon will guess where we’ve been in about […]

A Private Resort!!!

After a busy day on Saturday it has been extremely quiet and all our regular early-season faithful are being rewarded with great snow conditions and very few people on the mountain. It’s like having your own private resort and this early-season time is one of my favourite periods of the entire winter. Thomas, Andreas, Jean […]

Maximum-turns!!!

Enough snow fell yesterday to clean up the weekend’s carnage and with clear skies at altitude JM, Thomas and my groups had a stunning morning at the Fornet. Besides a ten-minute ‘skin’ and a couple of little ‘step-ups’ it was gravity fed all the way and an excellent maximum-turn session. We skied two in the […]

1-Nil To The Hammers!!!

I was extremely busy yesterday afternoon doing my hot wine service for the commune and was totally oblivious to what was going on in the Chelsea v West Ham match. I was expecting the worse after such a dreadful run of results, especially with a keeper who’d never played in the Premiership before so I […]
