Poor Kevin!!!

I had my friend Kevin and his young son Jake skiing with me today, along with Bunny, Doug, Adam F, and Patrick, but unfortunately Kevin pulled a calf muscle on the second pitch and had to go home. What a bummer as the snow this morning was excellent but as least Jake got a taste […]

Change Of Pace!!!

After skiing five days-in-a-row of ‘classic’ spring slopes in Val d’Isere Chris and I headed to Tignes for a change of pace and we had a cracking good morning. (See photos) Meanwhile Andreas ‘skinned’ to the Col des Fours and Thomas and Henry stayed on our side of the resort. The sun continues to shine […]

On The Eve Of Brexit!!!

I had a team of good walkers today and did a double ‘skin’ to ski absolutely brilliant snow in steep terrain with wonderful scenery. It was a fantastic morning and although it was warmer today it was still cool enough to ski both itineraries and after skiing the ‘L’ I circled back around to ski […]

Limited But Still Great Skiing!!!

We had another fabulous day of sunshine and with it some great skiing as well. The entire team skied on the Val d’Isere-side of the resort with Thomas and Chris doing a ‘skin’ to find outstanding snow while Andreas and I skied off the lift system and had some excellent slopes around the Bellevarde/Charvet sectors. […]

Much Colder!!!

We had a solid refreeze last night with -11C on the summit of Bellevarde this morning and with a northwest wind blowing it remained chilly in exposed areas. Andreas and I did a double ‘skin’ and had some stunning spring snow on fantastic slopes and it was a cracking good morning. We were a little […]

Surprisingly Good!!!

I didn’t have huge expectations this morning and after three cracking days in a row in Tignes I thought I’d stay closer to home and the skiing was much better than expected. Chris Thomas and I skied some great Val ‘classic’s) but just on the sunny side as many slopes haven’t yet transformed and are […]

Tropical!!!

It was another absolutely stunning day as the sun beats down without a cloud in the sky. We haven’t had enough intense sun and heat to transform all our spring slopes, especially at altitude but there is some great spring skiing to be had at lower altitudes. (See photos) I had another 90% spring and […]

The Beat Goes On!!!

As the sun continues to beat down and the temperatures rise the snow is transforming and spring-snow options are opening up. I skied a combination of 90% spring and 10% winter snow today and some of the spring snow was as clean and perfect as you’ll ever get. The sun hasn’t yet been intense enough […]

What A Lovely Morning!!!

As it gets  trickier with each passing day the boys did an outstanding job again today. Chris and Thomas went off together for a nice tour while Andreas and I skied in the same sector, and Henry skied where Chris and I skied yesterday and everyone had a brilliant morning. (See photos) I’m in ‘code-mode’, […]

Still Great Skiing!!!

As the powder options dwindle with each and every day the boys are still doing the business and finding some wonderful skiing combined with outstanding ambience. I’m in ‘code-mode’ as times are tough and I unfortunately forgot my camera today and missed some fantastic photo opportunities, but the good news is I saved myself 45 […]
