Joe & Ed are on the second and final day of their first aid refresher, I hope Joe’s head wasn’t too fuzzy after the lovely wine tasting & tapas at The Boomerang in Les Gets last night!
So whilst they are up at Chalet Tressud doing their bit to help keep the slopes safe for our lovely clients, Delilah & I have been out for our first snow-shoe of the season with Jayne of Ski Blue Ridge and Jo Halliwell (of the aforementioned Chalet Tressud), not forgetting Delilah’s BFF, Marmite!!
Fresh snow has been falling all last night and today so we were a bit apprehensive about the drive up to Mt Caly (which is one of the last to be cleared whenever there is new snow) but there were no dramas and it was well worth it for a glorious 2 hour stomp around the cross country track in the fresh air, light snowflakes falling all the time. Just the perfect way to break out the winter paraphernalia and get back into winter mode!
And now back at basecamp with the log fire going and a slightly snowballed Delilah thawing out on the hearth (ok so she’s taken over the couch again but I have made her sit on her blanket!). Hot mug of tea anyone?
Can’t wait to do a few turns now!
