Gutted!!!

I know many of you were booked in to ski this week and I’m sure you’re absolutely gutted. I know how you feel as Gill and the girls were due to arrive last night for 17-days of fun skiing powder and spring snow, going to gigs, enjoying the festive atmosphere in the streets and generally […]

Happy Belated Birthday Richard!!!

How Are You Feeling???

How are you all feeling??? I’ve had a cough and been incredibly fatigued for the past week but haven’t had headaches or a fever. Because no one is being tested it’s difficult to know if I’ve had Coronavirus or just a good old belt of the Val dIsere cold/flu that we all need to deal […]

Back In The UK!!!

I can’t believe that just a few short days ago we were skiing great snow and were singing, dancing, kissing and hugging at the Danois! All of a sudden there is the threat of Military presence in the street and you need an official form to leave your dwelling. Blimey, we knew it was coming […]

We started with a Middle-Borsat from under the chair and meadows into Tignes before booting up into the Chardonnet. It must have rained harder in Tignes as the Chardonnet was affected […]

Brilliant!!!

The temperature dropped overnight and with 10cm’s of wind-assisted fresh snow the transformation in conditions was quite incredible. After a murky start we broke through into the sunshine and had a brilliant morning of ‘maximum-turn’ skiing starting with an excellent run in the Combe du 3300. (There was a slow opening due to ice on […]

A Late Finish!!!

I finished late and have just returned from Bourg on an essential shopping trip before it all hits the fan. Essential as in food and 19 bottles of wine, and not one toilet roll as a protest! Blog and photos to come after a bath and a beer in the Danois. Stay tuned! I gave […]

Excellent ‘Skiers Snow’!!!

The temperatures were high during the night and there was no doubt that we needed to stay high and as north as possible so Chris, Thomas, Henry and I all headed towards the Fornet. It was foggy in town but promised to be clearer higher up the mountain and sure enough we broke into clear […]
