Totally Shutdown !!!

We had a fierce storm last night and throughout the day leaving the resort closed with only the nursery slope at the bottom of Solaise functioning. Unfortunately the World Cup Race was cancelled but I was amazed that they were able to run the GS yesterday. It’s been a tough couple of days and tomorrow […]

Not Much Happening!!!

It was lights-out at 9:20 last night as I was exhausted and in need of a good sleep and awoke raring to go and feeling great this morning. I had high hopes for a low-expectation morning but with the World Cup Race being the main priority there really weren’t any options this morning. We waited […]

Tougher Than Expected!!!

I was expecting a brilliant day with fresh powder and bright blue skies and Chris and I headed up to the Fornet to make the most of it. Unfortunately it didn’t snow as much as anticipated but we had a good run in the Combe du 3300 to get started. The Pays Desert didn’t look […]

It was just Derek and I this morning and we had a nice ski around Bellevarde skiing off-piste for the most part with a few piste cruises thrown in. I picked up a ‘Splat du Jour’ award for an explosive head-plant-forward-roll that came out of nowhere. We were skiing easy terrain (green-like) in lovely snow […]

First boob of the season !!!

The sun was out in full force this morning and Derek, Tom and I headed up to the Fornet. The Cascade was closed yesterday and after skiing some fantastic snow around Bellevarde I was expecting quite a nice cushion of fresh snow on the Pisaillas. Unfortunately the tracks weren’t filled in and there was less […]

A nice change of pace!

When arriving at the Gourmandine it looked as if we were in for a tough morning with limited skiing and flat-light and when Derek, Sylvie, Tom and I arrived at the top of the Olympique we were in a fog and expectations were fairly low. But, after 100 metres we descended through the fog and […]
