After yesterdays total wash out (Although I did spend the day transferring blogs to my account at webfaction and learning about host files in windows, including using the rather cool HostsMan programme).
It was great to wake up to a massive dump of snow (which killed the apartments power from 3am to 8am). Thierry reassured me that Mont Chery doesn’t do avalanches so you can guess who was the first in the bubble lift this morning 🙂 🙂
First ride was down the red chamois back to the village which was a bit easy, since it had been bashed earlier and the snow was only a few inches deep. So on my next trip in the bubble I met another snowboarder who suggested we went down off-piste underneath the bubble. After a couple of face plants with one of them had me disappearing underneath the fresh powder totally, I was beginning to wish I hadn’t bothered.
After some hot chocolate I did the black gazelle which was AWESOME, although by the end of the day it was totally churned
Afternoon was a few runs of the top of Mont Chery but the cloud level was low so visibility was not to good plus the ice was coming through the powder.
Here’s the pics and runs on Evertrail:-

Tomorrow’s looking even better it hasn’t stopped snowing since 4pm 🙂
Update: There was an avalanche on a more remote part of Mont Chery yesterday with 45 years old, Jean-Michel Delavay owner of a sport shop in Les Gets dying http://cli.gs/WyeQMS
