Avoriaz, snow, snow, snow
So after 5 articulated lorries delayed our trip up to Avoriaz, blocking the road for 45 minutes we get up to some great snow. Babs’ first turns of the season and my second day on Alpine skis but 3 weeks under my belt on Telemarks, we also hook up with the other guys from ALC, Ed and Nate and get some lovely runs in. The visibility isn’t great but the snow is brill.
Some awesome off-piste where I manage to do a front flip out of both skis after hitting a compression, much to the delight of Ed, who says, “I’m not saying that made my day and made me laugh but it made my day and……”
Quite a bit of wind around but lots of cover in the tree-lined runs on the Linderet side that winds down through “the stash”, some really nice bumps starting to form there too by the end of our time there.
Lots more snow falling and more forecast for the next few days, so looks like the season could be on for one of the best starts for a while and we might forget the bad season we had last. As an aside this might stop the British press doing their usual doom and gloom and irresponsible reporting. Les Gets and Mt Chery open this weekend so watch this space
