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 we went over the Col Pers and lost altitude. It was a maximum-turn morning of the highest quality and after a murky start the skies cleared and Chris, Henry and my groups made the most of it. My team skied off the Laisinant, followed by the Combe du Signal, two in the Combe du 3300 on the Pisaillas, two in the Pays Desert, the first through Chris’ Passage and the second down one of Henry’s sneaky routes, and then a Col Pers exiting via my funky route to finish. All the teams skied similar runs and it was a wonderful morning and very much deserved for all the faithful. (See photos)

It looks as if the flat-light is behind us and a couple of sunny days are forecast to finish off the season so it looks as if we’ll have a little powder mixed with spring tomorrow and perhaps a full-on spring snow day on Wednesday. Although it was tough going at times in the flat-light I think we’ll all miss the powder!

Don’t forget Karen and Andreas will be playing at the Coin des Amis tomorrow afternoon and it looks like the weather will cooperate. I’m really looking forward to it and have missed the gigs over the past ten-days or so. If you’re in town I’ll see you there!
