05/03/2017 Sunday

Didn’t really get to bed met the taxi driver at Stepney green station at 2am picked up nick then Julian we were early at checking then found the weather spoons closers so went to the wondered with Laura and had Mexican breakfast and a beer then another in another place. Slept a bit on flight then a bit more on lengthy bus transfer. I was out the door pretty quick when we arrived in resort before 1pm . I went down through the the moguls in my new 158cn ski's and got a ski pass for meribel. I was ok at first but it got colder and snowier the higher you went. I did about 10 miles in total. And didn't injure myself despite skiing off piste in poor visibility. Eventually retired to cake then dinner. After dinner got drinking with Trevor. We had grenipe and get 21 and had a good old chat with Nick, Johan and the barman.

Up and felt good got in a group with Josh and Aimee and rob. We went up the lalientieres lift. It was low visibility and was snowing but was doable. We decided to try the other blue going down the back of the mountain from paleietiers. This was a disaster as we were skiing into a strong wind had to pole to go downhill a few times and my face got bitterly cold waiting for the others. Then I heard Aimee screaming she was stranded in a white out so I took my skis off and walked back up. But then we reunited and carried down trying to get through snow that was going above my boots. We got to a lift and had to make Aimee walk as she couldn't board. We got up and started coming down the normal route but I was feeling very sea sick due to the disorientation with lack of vision.so I stopped off back at the hotel. I had a lie down for a little while and then ran to the la destroy bar and had a ruby Lecce.with all the gang before running.back up the hill. To the hotel I had beer before dinner a d sat on a table where Sarah and Laura told us jokes. We drank as usual till the bar closed at 1am.

Up and out at 9.15 and after a bit of David we got started with a group of nine of us. Kyrstie , Sara, mark, Luke, Emma, rob,Josh . In the morning is was tricky and cold without goggles but the hand warmers worked and although the visibility was poor I managed to get down everything with the others. We stopped at 11 for coffee then at lunch we picked up nick. We couldn’t get out of the valley as the lifts were closed. There had been a bad avalanche in tignes later in the day the cold suddenly lifted and visibility and improved and I started to really enjoy it. We went down one smooth route a couple of times then me and kyrstie did the cookies route twice going through the kids tunnel. I then ran 7.5 miles after cake to try and get to the Apres ski but turned round before I got there and ran back.
