A bit of powder!

With resort really quiet the slopes have been in excellent condition this week - firm & fast. Yesterday with Jim & John we still managed to get some fresh tracks in Les Avals (along with the best omelette in France). Today we went up the hill to discover a couple of inches of fresh had been deposited up high.
After a mornings play in Courchevel we nipped over to Val Thorens for a run down the classic Lac du Lou itinerary from the Cime de Caron, only a few clear ways down at the moment following the gully lines, but some nice patches of powder to put a smile on everyones face.
After lunch we hit the jackpot at a secret location, where the powder was super soft but had drifted in up to 5 inches deep. Heaven...
