We’ve finally made it! Two 5am starts, a sub-Channel crossing, 45 minute argument with sat nav, posh hostel/cheapo hotel, 750 miles, several pain au chocolat, and a fatty pooch later we arrived in Tignes at 11.30am on Saturday 10th November.
Sadly instead of beautiful blue skies we were greeted with drizzly rain and slushy roads, but we are now home and settled for the season.
This morning, however, we were greeted with a completely different view..
Le Lac in the early hours of this morning
For our second day of BASI prep training with Ski Focus up on the glacier we were long turns a-go-go after yesterday’s playing in the powdery piste, and we all managed to step it up both in speed, aggression, and overall performance. We also welcomed Sally to the group after taking a day to acclimatise Rosie dog to her new surroundings (which, btw she has settled into beautifully).
Oh, and just in case you were wondering, we are 7 for 7 for tumbles – yes that’s right, even our trainer had a stumble in the challenging conditions yesterday (much to everyone’s delight!).
Not sure what tomorrow has in store for us yet, but if the conditions are anything like they were today we’re in for a real treat…
