Outrageously Good!!!

It snowed between 10 and 15cm’s overnight but with 80km/h winds blowing at altitude there was some serious snow transported by the wind and it was knee-deep in places. (See photos) With -14C temperatures the snow was beautifully light and we all had an outrageously good morning. Andreas was first into the Chardonnet and he […]

Good Ambience!!!

After a cracking day in Tignes yesterday Thomas and I headed to the Fornet for a change of scenery, along with Chris and his team. There wasn’t too much presenting itself so we headed straight over the Col Pers, which for the most part was pretty jolly good. We exited via the atmospheric Funky Route, […]

Cracking Outing!!!

After yesterday’s difficult day with cement-like snow there was enough of a re-freeze to set the snow up into something skiable and the with sun shining I thought it was a cracking morning. The snow supported for the most part with a creamy surface and it was about as good as we could have hoped […]

Bravo Chris!!!

It snowed 26cm’s in the village last night, 50cm’s on Bellevarde and over 60 up on the Pisaillas Glacier, and of course it was accompanied by strong winds! With warm temperatures in town it was always going to be a difficult morning and I ended up taking it off as Ian is nursing a sore […]

Where Did That Come From!!!

We thought that it had snowed another 10cm’s overnight but wow, in places there was at least 30, maybe 40cm’s! With the north-westerly winds we knew where the best snow would lie and fortunately had a ‘light-bulb’ of light around the Charvet, which seemed to last most of the morning. The Grand Pre was slow […]

That Was Satisfying!!!

It was another morning where we weren’t expecting that much but everyone was pleasantly surprised as it snowed more than we thought it would, the wind wasn’t too much of a factor although it did shut some lifts down, and the visibility was excellent for a flat-light day! Chris, Thomas and I had lovely skiing […]

Funky!!!

That was a ‘funky’ morning with a capital F! It was a beautiful day but we had the feeling there would be a few lifts slow to open and after dealing with the ‘cabin-fever’ queue at the Olympique I knew I didn’t want to get involved with other skiers so I headed to the Tour […]

Ferocious!!!

Wow, that was a windy one! Unfortunately we didn’t get a lot of skiing this morning but the highlight was an excellent run in the Combe du Signal from the top. The vis was decent and the snow was incredibly good considering the wind but when we returned to the Pyramid Chair they closed it […]

That Was White!!!

It was drizzling in town this morning and the snow was humid even as high as the Grand Vallon but it was all skiable and made for a jolly good morning. I was a little worried first-thing as it was blowing a hoolie and many lifts were closed due to the wind and with extremely […]

What A Night!!!

I’m off today as I was going to do a ‘skinning’ and ‘kick-turn’ lesson but poor Phil broke his wrist yesterday afternoon! Chris was the only one on the mountain today and he ‘skinned’ to Mont Roup with Corrina, Suzanne and Louise had they had a great ski and finished early as they’d had the […]
