Stacy Williams timed it right by arriving for some off piste skiing just after 30 cm of fresh snow. We left the Chamonix Valley and headed for Combloux where we had exceptional skiing. The lifts were slow to open because of the avalanche risk. When they did open several leemings killed them selves [8 in one day] by just charging down loads of steep gullies filled with deadly snow.
A couple of days later I had my first ever Russian clients Duma and Tanya. They were very good skiers who skied like there was no tomorrow and were quite a hand ful.
