Andy, Chris, Colin and Paul arrived from the UK on Tuesday. The weather in the mountains was again pretty poor but this has the great advantage of putting down more fresh snow for skiing. We made the most of this by having a fun day at Le Tour on Wednesday off piste skiing. Spontaneous windslab avalanches were visible so care was required in the choice of line.
The weather was warm on Wednesday evening with rain at high levels in the mountains. We opted on Thursday to visit Les Contamines ski area. This area often clears of bad weather quicker than some of the higher resorts and this is what happened on Thursday. Following a number of on piste runs and a brilliant lunch (wild boar stewed in red wine) we had a great afternoon completing a short ski tour to a summit and off piste skiing.
