And Now we are 6

2 days in the deep at the GM.

Day 61 & 62 with one beautiful sunny day with new ski buddies Trisha and Andy and one terrible vis but epic snow conditions with Sharon & Keith.

No warm up for Sharon and Keith but Thursday had us heading straight up to Les Grands Montets meeting up with Trisha and Alan for a day of blue sky, sunshine, new routes and fluffy stuff.

We culminated in an amazing run down Point de Vue from the top of the Mountain masterfully managed by all.

Friday and we split up with a well earned rest for Chris and Nicky .. well not really a rest as they were on the first Flegere lift (incredibly it was actually running!) Chris clocking up more high speeds on the BMW x-drive cup speed run and then they joined the grockles in the afternoon for a trip up the Aiguille de midi escorted by Mark.

The rest of us were back at the GM braving the rubbish vis at the top to be rewarded with amazing powdery turns down from the Pylones Piste and later the Lavancher bowl in the afternoon when the weather improved.

Some great action shots were captured along with some incredible views.

And here’s a selection of the views from the midi and the famous glass box enjoyed by Chris, Nicky & Mark.

And to close off Thursday .. it’s been a while ..

Les Drus

We are heading back to Italy tomorrow. Nicky needs hot chocolate and we think the best snow will be had the other side of the tunnel.
