Meeting another one of the team

Today we met up with Julia who's also on the BASI course with Phil and Tracey and Dave. We skied similar stuff to the last few days but concentrated on the off piste a little more, it's surprisingly good once you get used to the idea that there may be rocks around. It's actually a little safer than the off piste in Tignes was as the snow has now settled quite nicely and so you can often ride over rocks rather than dropping through soft powder into them.

We skied until just after lunch time and then headed home for lunch. It's really quite a nice change to be having some relaxing skiing after all the courses and training that I've been doing. Once we'd chilled for a while Phil and I drove to Chamonix to a shop that Phil knew and that had a pair of Scott Mission skis. I got my skis and then we visited every clothing shop in Cham and Phil still didn't manage to get a new jacket... I think the Missions will stay unused until we get some more snow...
