The weekend started with an easterly wind blowing and because it has been cloudy towards the Italian border for the previous 36-hours we were sure that we’d get the best possibility of fresh snow up at the Fornet so we headed into the clouds and wind.
The wind was blowing pretty hard and I skied on the piste off the Laisinant and Pyramid as there wasn’t much fresh snow, the light was flat, and it was all looking a little scratchy, but once up on the Pisaillas Glacier it was a different world.
There was at least 20cm’s of powder snow while the wind was considerably less of a factor, and we profited with a brilliant morning of powder skiing. I really enjoyed the superb spring skiing we’ve had over the past ten-days or so but I’m a ‘powder man’ and Friday morning was a real treat!
