2 weeks ago was the 'Off Piste Improvers' course based in Brides-les-Bains below Meribel and run in conjunction with Jagged Globe. With Steve, Russ and Ronan we made a pretty good job of scouring the 3 Valleys from end to end in search of good powder and steep slopes. Amongst other things we skied the Equinox Face, Couloirs Cure, Emile Allais and Sous le Tele; Col du Vallon, Speedball, La Masse down to Le Bettex, Col de Bouchet. Good tours were had to the Col de Borgne, and the Combe des Roches via the Col des Saulces. On the whole we managed to find good soft snow every day, despite no new snow for a good few days...
