Well, woke up to a cloudy morning – only the second one this
month year 😉
The amount of days I used to wake up in London and the city was covered by a blanket of low cloud and I used to think to myself, wouldn’t it be great if there was an Upper-Level to the city – ‘Above the Clouds’ : There’d be parks, bicycle lanes, skate parks and cafés with terraces full of happy people sitting in the sun.
Well guess what ? – these places exist! 5mins on the Grand Alpe bubble and I was out of the cloud & in the sun – and no wind!
A bit of a late start but still got about 2.5hrs riding in, covered over 30km of the mountain and discovered some pretty cool off-piste runs like the little one from the top of the Barres drag-lift to the bottom of the Vallons chair-lift (about 1.5km) and the one from the top of the Vallon chair down to the bottom of the Fréjus chair (about 3.5km)
Here are the best snaps from the phone from this mornings session
