Top of the world

Dropping down 1200 vertical metres from 3000m three powder fields linked by two couloirs - this one steep and icy. Looking to the left we saw three mountain goats such was our isolation. Real pity that the only way in is a flat kilometre of ice followed by narrow steep black piste. Could only manage a run through it twice - took three hours - before my legs were jelly.

The black dot in the centre right of the picture is Andy sitting behind a rock on avalanche watch. Not actually a great place to sit as it happens but it looked sheltered at the time.

I love baby cheesy.

Homemade cheese fondue. Horse sausage, parma ham, cornichons and lashings of red wine. Wouldn't be a snowboard trip without it.

And relax.

The powder was too good to resist today and consequently i am now shattered. Just as well we have a log fire and plenty of whisky.


Grand biere and pizza for lunch. Loads of fresh tracks. Only paddy injured so far and thats only through being fat. Poor lad cant reach his feet to strap in properly.

First run

Bluebird day. Fresh snow. Beautiful.
