Christmas is usually quiet so I booked the girls in ages ago to ski with me and what a treat to have clear blue skies and a solid freeze after yesterday’s rain. After several physio treatments Gill strapped me up and I was extremely pleased and relieved to be back in the saddle and along with the girls, Michael, Penny, Red Ray and Paddy we had a fabulous Christmas ski.
The good freeze gave us support and with some fresh snow on top of a smooth base Chris, Andreas, Thomas, Jean Marc and I all skied in Tignes around the Motte with Andreas and Thomas heading to the Chardonnet and Sache. After a couple to very tough days (I missed them and chose a couple of good days to be out of action) everyone was extremely pleased to see the sun again and in very agreeable snow!
I must sign off as I’m in charge of Christmas dinner so stay tuned for more news tomorrow and Merry Christmas! (Photos are up)
