We were on the 8.40 am bus with Rory, our resort manager, and a boarder who works for Ski Royale. Gordon had caught an earlier bus although the lift does not open until 9. We got home at about 2.30, having skied continuously, and most of that off piste. The snow was perfect and we had sunshine, so it was a perfect day. Unfortunately Rory got a ski stuck under a branch and took a tumble, which resulted in him dislocating his shoulder. He was not sure whether it was the 19th or 20th time he had done it. He managed to get it back but it was obviously very sore. Luckily we were near the bottom of St. Nicholas so it was just a question of getting back up and over and skiing home. We left him at the Ideal lift and we went up Etudiant and skied home via Planelllet. One or two people had done it since we skied it two days ago but it was still great snow. Now we just need some more snow to cover our tracks so we can go and do it again!
