Torrential!!!

Yesterday’s torrential rain was so bad the organisers decided to send the D of E students home for the night as they were so wet and cold after spending the day in the rain and with thunderstorms forecast during the night enough was enough. Katie and her team were in surprisingly good spirits and I […]

Good Luck Katie!!!

Katie headed off this morning for her D of E walk with an appalling forecast ahead of her. Heavy rain is expected all-day and into the night as her team set off with their huge packs. I told her she’d ‘leave this morning a girl but come home a woman’ but she didn’t find any […]

Derek On Tour!!!

Derek and Marcella are having a brilliant time in Canada. They’ve flown over to California for Heather’s graduation from Stanford and have taken the opportunity to do some serious exploring beforehand. They’ve enjoyed a jaw-dropping drive up the coast of Oregon to Portland before flying to Vancouver to start the Canadian leg of their trip. […]

Up And Running!!!

The planning for the 2019-2020 season is now up and running with Richard Foster and his lovely daughter Francesca being the first ones in the books. If they weren’t skiing with me I’d offer them and early-bird discount! Stay tuned!

An All-England Final!!!

I’ve started to settle in back in the UK after another superb season where the weather was kind for the most part, the snow was excellent although we endured a couple of tough patches, and we had some new clients mix in with our regular faithful’s. I thoroughly enjoyed the music scene, which enhanced my […]

A Stunning Finish!!!

This past week has been brilliant and today was a stunning finish to another fantastic season. With the fresh snow from a few days ago followed by a couple of days of sun the spring snow was as ‘clean’ as it gets and it was a real treat today to have such pristine conditions. We […]

Another Fantastic Finish For Derek!!!

After about five days up at the Fornet it was time to head to Tignes today and what a great finish it was for both Derek and Barnaby. It was a bit of an in-between day snow-wise as the spring snow is in transformation but we managed a nice blend of Spring and powder. We […]

What A Reward!!!

What a reward for those of us who have been skiing around in flat-light and wind for the last few days. Although we’ve had superb skiing of late today was simply one of the best days of the season with deep and light snow that stayed cold until the very end of the morning when […]

Wow Again!!!

It snowed again last night and with -10c at the top of Bellevarde this morning the snow was cold and light. The visibility was poor for the most part and after a warm-up on the ‘L’ we dove into the Grand Vallon in a ‘white-out’ and nedded to feel our way down the mountain. We […]

Back To The Fornet!!!

After ignoring the Fornet for most of the winter due to poor snow conditions, or violent winds, or extremely cold temperatures, the Fornet has come good over the past month and given us some fantastic skiing. It didn’t snow as much last night compared to the previous night but it was enough to give us […]
