So Joe arrived home in Les Gets yesterday after his week skiing powder in Zermatt. He’s just about squeezed in some precious down time. For once the rain was welcome as it gave us a good excuse for just sitting by the fire with a bottle of wine. And it isn’t all bad, we woke up to a distinct snow line in the trees this morning! As I write he is packing for his trip to Tignes – running a 2 week Telemark course for BASI. He says he is not looking forward to running the only course (normally BASI try and set up several in tandem) but I’ve a feeling the news that Tignes also has fresh powder has made the prospect considerably more attractive!!
Joe literally arrived back in Les Gets just in time to stop off at Ed’s as HE was heading to Zermatt and wish him good luck. Ed is attending a potential trainer’s selection, a sort of interview on snow. There’s stiff competition, about 30 candidates in total I hear, so we’re keeping everything crossed!!
