Well, Tuesday 25th was a lovely day, but with a bad forecast for Wednesday I took my Dutch group down the hidden valley (Gours) and they loved it! The snow was truly fabulous, and the narrow bits weren’t all that narrow even. We did have one hiccup just above Zotov’s leap, but that was quickly over.
here are the guys after the first two sections of the descent
This doesn’t look as steep as it sometimes is – although it was still pretty steep at the top!

Wednesday 26th was pretty foul as expected! It snowed, and snowed, and snowed! It was foggy HOWEVER … the snow was great, light powder right down in the village, and of course we have masses of fun off piste tree skiing right down here! I took the Dutch group round and about via all sorts of little ways, and they loved it even more than the day before! New bunch of off pisters are born!
Today (Thursday 27th) was lovely in the morning, sunny and fresh, but sadly clouded over in the afternoon, ready for tonight and tomorrow’s snow! What? More???? It hardly seems possible! The piste conditions today were totally exceptional, and although I wasn’t off piste at any point, one really can’t complain!
Spotted this 80′s outfit and managed to snap it in time

We are expecting snow tomorrow … we’ll just have to see what next week brings
