Sunny morning, perfect snow

02 February 2019

Today dawned sunny and the snow was perfect, only about 10cm new snow overnight.

Jaillet Face Megeve.JPGToday was the first sunny day for some time.  We have had an enormous amount of snow and its been quite exhausting skiing new powder every day.  The boys have gone home and Neville and Gordon decided to have a day off, so I went and did a bit of exploring on Jaillet.  

I was on the first bus and thought I might be first down the face, but just as I cleared the trees a local ski club came out.  They trashed the one side but I was able to take my own line (see above).  I then spent the rest of the morning finding a new way through the forest and a better exit from that run. Then I got the bus to Rochebrune and skied to Fiona and Jonathan's chalet to retrieve my hat which I had left behind after dinner there earlier in the week.  Then home for lunch. Legs very tired, might have a day off tomorrow - its forecast to snow again.
