We are getting good at this.
Top skills from Mark in predicting where we can find great snow so resulted in another Italian day filled with amazing powder, crappy visibility, fresh tracks in the trees, amazing hot chocolate & of course great coffee.
A very fitting end to some brilliant days with Nicky & Chris. Nicky found the off piste bug and Chris showing off some brilliant skills and putting up with some less than accurate predictions of how easy or hard our routes might be.
Actually we were lucky to make it back to base as our call to just do one more run ended up in a cloud filled valley where we couldn’t see a thing & shock horror we had to consult the piste map and use the power of the force to find the right lift back up .. senses of humour maintained all round .. thanks everyone for not killing your guide.
Enjoy the pictures but we really needed a photo of me here to improve the colour range, although I do quite like the red white & black palette.
We will have a really full house tonight as due to a small glitch in the “book your slot” spreadsheet we have an unexpected overlap.
Check back in a few days for some video footage of Chris & Nicky’s adventures.
Up next, day 64 and we return again to Courmayeur having swapped Nicky & Chris for Angela & Mike,.
