It’s Getting Tough Out There!!!

It’s getting tougher each day out there, and in reality it’s already been difficult for the past week. We pick a sector and head off into it searching for the best snow and routes available, and anything that works is a result. This morning we had some serious wind to deal with as well, which […]

A Very Pleasant Morning!!!

I must say we took it very easy today with some fantastic piste skiing, a little technique, some gentle off-piste in pretty good snow and a short ‘skin’ and with the sun beating down without a cloud in sight it was a very pleasant morning. Andreas and Henry had the day off while Chris, Thomas […]

Good Results!!!

It was just Andreas and I on the mountain today as the rest of the boys were having a day off and with it getting a little tougher each day we were both pleased with our choices today. Andreas headed towards Tignes to ski a little couloir that he ‘sniffed’ out a couple of seasons […]

Really Enjoyable!!!

As each day passes the expectation levels drop a little and any ‘sniff’ that leads to untracked soft snow of any type is greatly appreciated, and any skiing with ambience is also a result, and today we had some great snow, ambience in the steep-and-narrow, and some stunning scenery as well. Chris, Andreas and I […]

It Turned Out To Be A Great Morning!!!

After working the team hard over the past four days or so I thought I’d give them a break and head to the Motte to see what we could ‘sniff’ out, and as it turned out we skied some great snow. We surprisingly found an excellent strip of ‘clean’ snow in the Borsat, then had […]

Happy New Year!!!

We had a great New Year’s morning today as Andreas, Thomas and I all headed to the Col du Montet. As usual the scenery was stunning and for the most part the skiing was excellent, all except the lower slopes on the bottom of the mountain. I felt sorry for Chris today because he does […]

Last Day Of The Year!!!

The sun continues to shine and we all went for various ‘skins’ except Thomas who opted for a couloir day with his team. I thought we had another cracking good day as our options are slowing diminishing as the sun is starting to touch up the snow on certain exposures and of course people continue […]

Diversity!!!

The entire ‘Alpine’ team spread out in just about every direction possible and Andreas, Thomas and I all took our teams for a ‘skin’. The sun continues to beat down so it’s definitely ‘walkies’ time as the resort has been hit hard with tracks. As usual it would help if more people made an effort […]

A Change Of Scenery!!!

After a few days in Val d’Isere and the Fornet it was time for a change of scenery so we headed towards Tignes and the first Sachette of the season. The main slopes of the Sachette were full of rocks and not easy to reach so we skied the couloir instead, which had great snow […]
