I’m Back !!!

I had a lovely time away for the most part with the girls and watched Katie at gym club, had a Chinese take-away, practiced chipping with Millie, had a great meal at Gill’s sister, saw Rosie, played golf with my mate Bill and had a nice breakfast with another golf friend Paul. My op went […]

Happy Birthday Tansy!

With a few uninspiring days, unexpectedly I had the pleasure to ski with Johny Alpine and Derek in perfect weather conditions and a very improved snow. Initially we were the only ones in the area. A lot of instability in the snow pack with many plaques that have popped out all over the place. And […]

Splat du Jour !!!

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 […]

Unfortunately the tracks weren’t filled in and there was less […]

Unfortunately by the time we arrived on the Pisaillas a cloud bank was rising rapidly from below and our options became […]

Code Mode !!!

The sun was shining this morning and Thomas and I headed back up to the Fornet but opted for a more adventurous outing, especially since the Pays Desert was hit hard yesterday. We headed over the Col Pers for the first time this season and it was a stunning sight as there wasn’t a mark […]

What a morning!!!

It was incredibly murky yesterday afternoon and into the night with some fresh snow floating about and I was a little concerned about the visibility this morning. When I looked outside around 7:15 there was 5cm’s of new snow on the terrace and with signs of clear skies at altitude my spirits and enthusiasm soared. […]
