Back on It (Again)

Scotty: Perfect pistes all to ourselves in the morning

Location: Les Contamines
Snow: Perfect pistes, some spring snow off-piste
Weather: Bluebird, warm

Not much skiing from me lately, despite the snow conditions improving somewhat and my workload decreasing.

Taking so long off skiing has driven my motivation to lows I never thought I’d see and I’ve found myself looking forward to summer more and more and really not feeling good in myself at all.  Realising a couple of days ago that a lack of skiing was most likely the cause of this I knew there was only one thing for it; forcing myself to get out on the hill even if conditions aren’t great, and my old pal Scotty’s trip to Chamonix couldn’t have come at a better time.

A really fun day at Les Contamines today mostly cruising pistes but also finding some nice spring snow late in the day, and good to catch up with a few of Scotty’s friends I know from our time in Canada and from his wedding.  More fun days coming up soon I hope, regardless of snow conditions.
