Which lift(s) and run(s) are these then?

First one looks like the Fontaine Froide, and the run would be the red next to it, also called Fontaine Froide.
Having a think about the second one - however it could just be the same lift looking back up the hill snowHead

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

A successful avi rescue on the border today (Fornet?). At 4/5 I will leave the arguments of why he was there to others.

Well almost the end of the season

Firstly a thank you to everyone for all your involvement this season once again... my pleasure doing these updates! Same time same place next season eh!

moosepig - yup you got it - slight trick question - its the same lift and run (Fontaine Froide) from differing angles looking up and down the slope

So today has been quite a day! I was in charge of getting Olivia to the meeting point for her lesson this morning which was good as it meant that I didnt have to leave home quite so early but on the flip side that in itself is a rather stressful thing to do when you have all your own gear to get ready etc too. It was a lovely sunny day today which meant that everyone wanted to get skiing first lifts so the buses were rammed - arghh! Anyway we got there and off she went!

I did my last periscope of the season as I watched the crowds gather for the Olympique lift (with so much snow there was going to be a severely delayed opening on the Solaise side in particular!) and there was a lot of amazement if nothing else that we really had mid Winter conditions here in mid April - bonkers!

Anyway I met my lady for her one of lesson with me this morning - actually a friend of a friend of a colleague and it was a case of building up some confidence but effectively getting her used to the fall line as she was used to doing 'z' shaped turns and with only a few days of experience under her belt we stared on the Village and later moved up the Solaise (the queue had gone by the time we headed up there). We managed as far as getting a lap on the Madelaine in and plenty on the magic carpet and the snow was just perfect up there - she loved it!

It was a mega rush after the lesson... a trip to Barmes for lunch with the family and then I headed off down the valley to do some shopping, pick up some things and generally rush around Bourg before heading back up and dumping the shopping before catching up with the family at Olivias prize giving and then some team beers at Coin des Amis (a couple of the team are leaving for pastures new this season so it was also a couple of au revoirs) and then finally home to get the kids into bed and dinner time ourself! It has been quite a non stop day!

As bar shaker says there was a serious incident in the Vallonet sector above the Fornet mid morning. 2 people were apparently taken in a slide but it would seem as if they are both alive but apart from that I dont really have much more information apart from the photos the pisteurs took. The main thing to note in the photo is how many tracks have already skied this pitch before it slide (on the right) and the face that just moving a little further long the ridge has been enough to hit the trigger point (I talked about this in my periscope this morning!). Anyway hopefully alls well that ends well!



And that is that for another season folks... Im now off tomorrow over to Val Thorens of the EoSB so looking forwarding to seeing people over there and skiing with as many of you as possible. Ill be back for monthly(ish) updates over the Summer so until then....
