Unseen from last winter

Posted on
October 5, 2010

Sometimes it's tough leaving out photos when posting on this blog. The above shot is of Rob enjoying the April powder last Easter. It's tricky at the time not to share with you all of the fun that goes on each week. However it could come across as being mean to keep blitzing you with photos. After all, I don't want people to feel envious. This next photo is also typical of a daily occurance, a chairlift ride I get to share with people each day. They attempted to make it look like an Alton Towers fun ride.

This was taken during the 'Coeur Blanc Challenge' charity event, see the posting during March last winter. Later that month a random sighting of my friend Isabelle and her hound on the Altiport draglift. This was taken whilst waiting to meet up with Chris before his lesson in March.

I also happily reported last January about Phil and his friends. They were enjoying their first skiing holiday - I didn't want to bang on about it too much at the time, but what a brilliant week.

And then Harriet flew out for a long weekend, and we got to go off piste skiing between rustic hamlets. Again I didn't want to rub salt into the wounds of those who weren't on holiday at the time.......

But hang on, during February half term, Olivia and family were also enjoying the soft fresh snow in different ways. Not that we wanted to shout from the chalet rooftops too loud.

However there are often many many tranquil moments. Cruising up on draglifts on sunny days, with your body relaxing and mind drifting in wonderful dreams before yet another glide down on skis. Not that I'm saying it's any different to most people's commutes into work !?!

Suddenly, just as you think the winter was over in April, another snowstorm blows in which helps Helen continue her passion for skiing, after numerous injuries and setbacks. What a reward.

But finally, just as the ski lifts close, my mate and ski instructor colleague Ian and I manage a final ski together down the magnificent Gebroulaz glacier.

Oh dear, I've just read this post. A little self-indulgent I think. In fact, very very self-indulgent. But how else was I supposed to continue to share my passion for skiing and the mountains with you during autumn and get away with it? Keep that fitness training going everyone, because you are planning on skiing this winter, aren't you?
