    Two or three inches of fresh overnight snow made the pistes very
    interesting today, superb conditions but quite hard work on the steeper slopes
    where the new snow pushed up into tough little moguls. Will be great tomorrow
    after the piste machines do their night’s work.
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    Remembering yesterday’s Golden Rule Number One
    (ski on the balls of your feet), Golden Rule number Two is….Ski on one ski at
    a time so that all your weight is on the turning ski, pushing on your big
    toe to pressure the front inner corner of your ski tip.

    LEN SILVER IN LA PLAGNE
    Had to have a very quick and short trip back to England, so missed a couple
    of days ski-ing. Got back Sunday lunchtime via the Silver Ski flight from
    Gatwick to Grenoble. Slept for an hour on the coach ride and as soon as I got to
    the chalet was “persuaded” to get on my skis, though I felt like going to bed.
    Glad I did though, a couple of hours on excellent pistes and I felt brand new.
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    You’re off and running so here is the most important tip of all.
    Ski on the balls of your feet so that the tongue of your boot is pushed hard
    against your shin with your knees bent. It will take a little time to get used to the
    position if you have been ski-ing flat footed, or worse, on your heels. Keep
    persevering, there is a whole new world of control once you have mastered it.

    It’s Thursday and, as forecast, the snow started falling at lunch-time, lightly
    at first but steadily getting thicker.  Should put a good new layer on during the
    night for the Piste Bashers to flatten. Everywhere looking nice and freshly
    white…I love it.
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    All prep.done and it’s time to take to the snow. When putting on your skis, if the
    ground is not flat, always put the bottom one on first, using your poles to
    balance.  Keep the weight on the bottom ski as you set off, probably
    feeling a little shaky, so deep concentration!

    NEWS FROM LEN IN LA PLAGNE:
    Everyone off for a late night out on Tuesday as they can have a much
    needed lie in and rest on Wednesday. A little bit of light cloud has appeared,
    probably the fore-taste of some snow that is due on Thursday and Friday. The
    long range is also telling us that it will snow over Christmas as well.
    Len’s Ski Tips:
    Never under-estimate the power of the sun at altitude, it is far stronger than
    at sea level, plus it is refelected from the snow…so…think about
    using a strong barrier cream and also wear goggles or sun-glasses
    to protect your eyes.

    Spent most of Monday watching out for the arrival of Speedway World Champion,
    Tai Woffinden – but he broke down somewhere around Lyon and finally arrived
    in a taxi in late afternoon, a bit wiser and lots of Euros poorer! Then this morning
    both Tai and myself took it in turns to teach his girlfriend, Faye, to ski.
    She was a very fast learner but was worn out by lunchtime…mind you,  so was I!
    Len’s Ski Tips:  
    When entering a piste from the side, always look uphill to see
    if another skier is bombing down….and remember, the skier in front has
    priority so if you are approaching a skier from above, it is your responsibility
    to ski safely past him.
