So, the lifts in the Portes du Soleil are still not open and after a few days at the computer (coupled with stresses involving office floods and uniform printing)… I decided I deserved to make the most of this first bluebird day since a week of snow. So back up Mt Chery in Les Gets it was, in the late afternoon sun. Perhaps for the first time ever I appreciated the work of the piste bashers, making the ascent so much easier than earlier in the week.
The views were awesome, especially from the top of Mt Chery over towards Mont Blanc (sorry no photos) and over towards Point Percée (which I climbed this summer).
The ride down… EPIC! Due to freezing cold temperatures it was just the best light, deep powder.
On a personal note; RIP Keith… days like today, I miss you big time buddy. x tammy
