Well, global warming is certainly having an effect on the glacier in Tignes, it looks very different to when I first trained up there 10 years ago. However, it is still there and people are still skiing on it and using it for their training. Last week I skied every day with Fraser who is training for his BASI Level 3 exam and despite limited access to the lower runs we enjoyed some great skiing.
The sun shone for most of the week and we rounded things off by skiing in fresh snow on Friday, only a dusting but enough to soften everything up, very nice. What better way to spend a week in October than sliding around in the sunshine. See you on the slopes soon.
