A Tougher Morning!!!

After a few days of stunning sunshine we had high thin clouds and fairly flat-light, which made things a bit more difficult today. With poor vis it’s a little less inspiring to go for a walk when you’re expecting the light to get worse so we all made the most of what we could from […]

Still Brilliant!!!

I’m a bit bummed because I’ve spent fifteen minutes writing the blog and then lost it all with the click on the wrong button and am now starting over. GRRRR!!!! It’s just shows that you shouldn’t operate machinery while half-pissed as Richard Foster took me out to lunch and I’ve just paid the price for […]

Great Leftovers!!!

It’s incredible how quickly the resort was tracked out yesterday and I thought I’d squeeze in one more day without walking. We opened up with a couple of really good ‘sniffs’ and I made the mistake of ‘congratulating myself while I was still in motion’ and my next call wasn’t the best as I headed […]

WOW!!!

The sun returned today and we had one of the best days you’ll ever have skiing! It was truly outstanding and Andreas and I hung out together today and had a ‘maximum-turn’ morning of outrageous quality. We warmed-up off the Verte before skiing an excellent Campanules, followed by a ‘as-good-as-it-gets’ Chardonnet, followed by the best […]

Ultra Light!!!

It was a beautiful walk home last night from Johnnie Alpine’s (thanks John for a great meal and the rugby) with big flakes of snow falling straight down and there was no doubt that we were in for a good morning today. Unfortunately there was a slow opening due to blasting but once we got […]

Bonus!!!

We weren’t expecting too much forecast-wise this morning but we profited hugely from unexpected blue skies to start the morning. Clouds rolled in around noon and the light flattened considerably but by this time we’d already won the morning and everyone was extremely satisfied. For the first time in ages I headed up to the […]

Exaggerated!!!

There was a gross exaggeration in the avalanche risk today and although it wasn’t a day to be wandering around in the backcountry there was plenty of ‘safe’ skiing to be enjoyed and all the teams had an excellent morning. It still really hasn’t snowed nearly as much as forecast as we were expecting 50cm’s […]

Brilliant Again!!!

I’ve had a busy day so short but sweet. We all had a fantastic morning as the boys spread out (see photos) and we also made the most of the visibility when it arrived mid-way through the morning. I had another positive and productive afternoon with Steve and Helen and their month-long holiday is sadly […]

Low Expectations!!!

It was cold, grey, windy and looking a little miserable this morning so Chris, Thomas and I all headed towards the Sachette for shelter and fairly -haggis-trap-free’ skiing. When we arrived on top of the Palafour the Aiguille Percee chairlift was closed due to wind so we needed to come up with a Plan B […]

Maybe The Finest???

It was -18C on the summit of Bellevarde this morning so all the teams headed towards sunny slopes and wonderful snow. I thought it was one of the finest days of the season and it was definitely a ‘maximum-turn’ morning as well! After a positive test off the Verte we skied a nice lower Borsat […]
