Good news... bad news...

A spectacular day yesterday to end a week of good snow and sunshine for the Off Piste Improvers course in the Val D'Anniviers, overshadowed by the news on the way home that Brendan O'Sullivan and 'American Dave' Rosenberger had been killed in separate incidents in the Mont Blanc range.

I never met Brendan, but he was a regular partner of Ben Briggs' with a CV of steep and serious descents and an active figure in the current steep ski/board scene. I only skied in Dave's company once, on the West face of the Eiger, and he blew me away with the ease of his positive, solid skiing on funky snow. Some big big snowfalls are predicted for the end of this week - take it easy out there folks!

The 'Captain' taking off on 600m vertical of perfect powder straight from the lifts yesterday afternoon!

More photos to follow from last week...
