Grand parenting and Brevent

Last night I became a grand parent for the first time. Our daughter produced a grand-daughter for us, after a long labour. Happily, both mother and baby are well and recovering rapidly from the ordeal. They are in Sydney, so it will be a little while before I meet the newest member of my family. I find it a strange experience; with emails, texts and Skype we will be able to maintain contact of a kind, but it will still be remote. I suppose in previous centuries, in similar circumstances, I would only have found out about the birth many months after the event, if at all. Anyway, I am taking my new responsibilities very seriously and have already found a host of websites like grandparents.com and grandparentsplus.org that I might join.

Today was mostly brilliantly sunny after a fair fall of snow overnight. I went to Brevent and had a great time. On the Charlenon side of the Cornu lift there seems to be a new unpisted black piste in an area that I have skied off piste before.

The snow there was fantastic and I took a couple of runs down it before it was tracked out.

By the time I decided to ski the Charles Bozon run the cloud had accumulated in the valley giving some spectacular views
