Well the season is steadily creeping up on us here in Les Gets – we have our first proper snowfall, the chalets are being prepared for active service and the pubs and restaurants are gradually opening.
Ed arrived two nights ago, his skis still have fresh snow on them from New Zealand and he is already looking forward to training with JJC in Saas Fe this weekend. We had a quick beer with Mo & Sal of TSI the other night, before they similarly head off to Val D’Isere for training with Gi Lewis.
Meanwhile Joe, having kicked the building work into touch, is going over to Chamonix on Wednesday to sort out a whole list of issues, from boot heaters to concerned BASI members wanting a chat with a member of the BASI board. He’s regretfully decided we’ve too much on to sneak off and join the others in Val D’Isere for a cheeky few days but no doubt we can make up for lost time once the season gets going.
And me? Well after a couple of tentative trips out on the snowshoes, I’m looking forward to skinning up Mt Cheri with Andrea and Jane (and of course Dilly & Delilah!) on Thursday. That’s assuming we’re not snowed off, you never know your luck!!
