Outstanding Ambience!!!

It was overcast first thing this morning with signs of good vis at altitude but by ‘showtime’ it had cleared up and we were treated to a fabulous morning. It was cold with clear blue skies and with an additional 10cm’s overnight and more where it had ‘pillowed’ in with the wind we had some […]

A Change Of Scenery!!!

The forecast was for some decent light early on with clouds and light snow moving in by the end of the morning and the Fornet sector was expected to have the better lasting visibility so TJ, Chris and I headed there for a change of scenery. Andreas went over the Col yesterday afternoon with Alex […]

A Stunning Morning!!!

The sun was shining again and after yesterday’s frenzy it was time to go for a walk. I had an Australian father-and-son, Gerard and James who had never ‘skinned’ before join the team and what an introduction! Chris and I did a ‘double-skin’ and both stages produced fantastic snow, great scenery and lovely ambience. (See […]

Great Skiing In Tignes!!!

After a tricky day wind and vision-wise yesterday the sun made a welcome return and we all headed towards the best snow in Tignes. All the boys skied variations of what was on offer and it was a cracking good morning with a lovely mix ranging from creamy compressed snow to perfect powder. The risk […]

4/5 !!!

We had gust of wind last night up to 140km/h with another 15 to 20 cm’s of fresh snow and it all added up to a high risk 4/5 rating. The winds were still fierce this morning and only the lower half of the mountain was open with the new La Daille bubbles opening first. […]

A Fresh Cushion!!!

It snowed about 15cm’s overnight and the snow was accompanied by a fairly strong north-westerly wind that transported snow onto the lee slopes and didn’t leave much new snow in others. It was much warmer today and with a ‘light-bulb’ of light coming and going we had some moments of decent visibility. I started off […]

Another Excellent Morning!!

Since the light snowfall last Wednesday we have had three excellent days of skiing with clear blue skies! It’s been a bit chilly at times but the cold has been manageable and we’ve had some wonderful snow mixed with some outstanding piste skiing while getting from A to B. The overnight wind touched up our […]

What A Gig!!!

The skiing was brilliant again today as we all made the most of the little snow that fell. (See photos) It looks as if we’ll get some more snow on Sunday so if we can get through tomorrow we should have some relief to look forward to as it isn’t good everywhere and the boys […]

Wonderful!!!

It was -17C and sunny today but we stayed in the sun and managed the morning without stopping. The skiing was stunning and I’m in ‘code-mode’ but the pictures tell the story. I’m having a busy day with a fantastic morning off-piste followed by a great afternoon with Steve and Helen, blog, bath and then […]

A Good Rummage About!!!

It was a potential ‘stinker’ this morning as it was cold and windy with grey skies and very little new snow to work with. The thermometer on the top of Bellevarde read -15C and when we turned into the wind it was glacial and any exposed skin was frostbitten almost immediately. We didn’t get any […]
