First flat-light morning!

The forecast wasn’t brilliant for today but when I looked outside first thing it was quite bright and I thought we were in for a pretty good day vision-wise and started to think adventurously. 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. […]

Made It !!!

I’ve had some adventurous trips back and forth over the past few years and this one was no different. I was happily listening to Doctor Karl on the radio when these signs started flashing ‘M26 Closed’ and ‘M20 Closed’ which immediately sent me into panic-mode as I had no idea about getting to the Tunnel […]

It’s almost time !!!

I’m having a little break from packing the car before I go to the golf club for a sandwich with my mate Paul, then a last afternoon and evening with the girls before leaving at 3am tomorrow. Unfortunately I need to come back for a couple of days in early December to have a procedure […]

A few flakes of fresh snow!

Looking at the webcams it seems the weather is a little unsettled and a few flakes of snow are floating about, but even better news is that patches of man-made snow are appearing. The temperature has dropped enough to allow the use of the snow-cannons and it will be interesting to see how much of […]

Opening day is looming and I’ve five more nights with the family before heading off at 3:30am next Thursday. The snow cover looks good for this time of […]

Just About Ready!

I’m slowly preparing for departing on November 22nd to be ready for the opening day on the 24th. So far the snow-cover above 2500 metres looks very good but there isn’t any snow yet below that point. From looking at the webcams there is no sign of any man-made snow so fingers crossed that the […]

Brookwood

Katie and I visited the Brookwood Military Cemetery today for the Remembrance Day Service. It was extremely well done and I was delighted that the ceremony took place in the Canadian sector with the flag flying and Oh Canada being played after God Save the Queen. An 18-pound gun was fired to start-and-finish the two-minute […]
