Up And Running!!!

The planning for the 2019-2020 season is now up and running with Richard Foster and his lovely daughter Francesca being the first ones in the books. If they weren’t skiing with me I’d offer them and early-bird discount! Stay tuned!

An All-England Final!!!

I’ve started to settle in back in the UK after another superb season where the weather was kind for the most part, the snow was excellent although we endured a couple of tough patches, and we had some new clients mix in with our regular faithful’s. I thoroughly enjoyed the music scene, which enhanced my […]

A Stunning Finish!!!

This past week has been brilliant and today was a stunning finish to another fantastic season. With the fresh snow from a few days ago followed by a couple of days of sun the spring snow was as ‘clean’ as it gets and it was a real treat today to have such pristine conditions. We […]

Another Fantastic Finish For Derek!!!

After about five days up at the Fornet it was time to head to Tignes today and what a great finish it was for both Derek and Barnaby. It was a bit of an in-between day snow-wise as the spring snow is in transformation but we managed a nice blend of Spring and powder. We […]

What A Reward!!!

What a reward for those of us who have been skiing around in flat-light and wind for the last few days. Although we’ve had superb skiing of late today was simply one of the best days of the season with deep and light snow that stayed cold until the very end of the morning when […]

Back To The Fornet!!!

After ignoring the Fornet for most of the winter due to poor snow conditions, or violent winds, or extremely cold temperatures, the Fornet has come good over the past month and given us some fantastic skiing. It didn’t snow as much last night compared to the previous night but it was enough to give us […]

Wow!!!

Wow!!! What a morning that was! It snowed between 10 and 15cm’s overnight with a little more drifting in with the wind and we had just enough vis early on to ski and navigate comfortably. It was a stunning morning and Dawn thought it was her best day of the season while Phil was making […]

Rebound!!!

After a tricky day it’s always nice to rebound with a better day and I thought the skiing this morning was excellent. With the foehn wind still gusting between 60 and 100km/h at the Fornet combined with clouds Chris, Henry and I all headed toward the better visibility and lighter winds in Tignes. There was […]

Not So Lucky!!!

We weren’t nearly so lucky today as Chris and I were hoping for similar conditions and success as we enjoyed yesterday but to say it was a much tougher day would be a serious understatement! Chris, Henry and I all headed up to the Fornet and were planning on going over the Col but the […]
