Wan o’ They Days

Graham: Popping off a natural hip

Location: La Clusaz
Snow: Spring snow
Weather: Hazy cloud, warm

A very fun day in La Clusaz in good spring snow for my first time today, after only ever visiting in sub-par conditions in the past.

Things took a little longer than expected to soften up so we cruised around the pistes and park for most of the morning but after lunch everything softened to excellent spring corn so we lapped the Balme area’s famous natural snowpark all afternoon with a few flips & spins thrown and even caught local legend Candide Thovex doing his thing on a few laps of the terrain that made him the skier he is today.

Really nice to be blasting around without backpacks and with less risks for once.  Today’s lift pass was free on our Chamonix passes but a day like this would be well worth the price of a lift ticket for a return trip sometime.

Graham: First flip of the winter
