A Strong North-Wester…

Rocher Blanc, 2503m

Very windy up on the mountain this morning.  The cable car ride (1st section of the Tronçon) was ‘interesting’ as it was full of a group of school children and the thing was blowing around like a red shirt on a clothes line.  They seemed to keep remarkably calm with just the odd squeal here and there.

Anyway we made it up and got on the Orée du Bois chairlift.  The weather report said the wind was 20km/h but it felt more like 40km/h up at the top!  A lot of the exposed lifts were closed due to the conditions and the only weather my better half is not partial to is strong wind so we did one on/off-piste  run of nearly 5km back down to Chantemerle and called it a morning.

The bonus with that is that I had time this evening to clean & wax my board and make a blinding organic chicken curry 😉
