Snowboarding at last!!
Went up a little late today, just as the sun was starting to break through. And I was on the snowboard!!!
First time boarding this season and I quickly realised how much I have missed it. Started off easy on my own on the Mont Blanc blue and a little off piste down the side, then over to the Cachette and the same again. Finally up the Clocheret Chair and down the blue and across the off piste to ...join some friends in the Snow Park. The park is still being added too. The mega jumps are just being finished. The wall, rails, red and green jumps and one black are all finished and there is an easy boardercross course as well. Plus the air bag of course (when it is open)!
The pistes were in great condition after the freshen up from last nights snowfall and the off piste was light powder sometimes untracked yet again.
After a few jumps in the park (my friends, not me. My knees cannot take that anymore. Doctors orders!!) we headed off piste for the rest of the day. Did some fun routes from above the Clocheret Chair off the Comborciere ridge, over in the national park off Lanchettes, down through the secret forest and finally back to the Funi via the Malgovert forest.
The off piste was in great condition again today and we were able to find plenty of places to make fresh tracks. More snow is forecast for tomorrow. This winter is just getting better and better!!! Hurry up and get out here.
If anyone needs a place to stay I know a few people that are willing to rent there places out. Sizes from 2 person studio to sleeping 12 and one that can take 24 I think. Send me a PM if you need to know more. But be quick as they are filling up fast. Hope that helps!
Hi Matt, yes I did, sorry I have not replied yet. I hope to be here till the end of the season as always, but I never can be sure! The lifts keep running until around 28 April and the snow should last till then I think. "300 plus cm above 2500m right now". Hope to see you for a beer and a ski as well. Cheers!!!
