Just a little bit of high cloud today and a sharp breeze in some places meant that it did feel a little cooler. We set off to the area around Borsat and Grand Pré where the pistes were in excellent condition and still surprisingly quiet. We did catch sight of one or two of the Ladies practising for the World Cup over the weekend as they hurtled down OK/Orange. We had a quick break in the new Planks Café in Val Claret. We then tried Genepy from the top of the Grand Motte which was surprisingly hard today (I suspect it hadn’t been pisted last night) and then a tootle down Trolles, not surprisingly this had a smattering of nervous intermediates scattered about on the hard pack, the gondola would be a much more comfortable way of getting to Le Lac.
There may well be a thin layer of high cloud partially obscuring the sun tomorrow, and a hint more breeze so it would be worth an extra layer I think. The sun will return for the weekend, the breeze will remain. We are expecting more cloud on Monday with some on the peaks. Tuesday and Wednesday will be more cloudy still, with cooler temperatures. Some of the forecasts are giving a hint of light snow, though I have my doubts at the moment as it is currently too far to the East. It does then become increasingly unsettled and the current (highly speculative) forecast is for snow on Christmas Day, which would be nice, but if I could forecast that far out, then I would be very rich!!
