 Fresh snow on Wednesday, then Thursday brought windless blue skies. Surprisingly Zinal was very quiet and we had several high speed runs in pretty good snow before heading off down the great descent to the Moiry dam. A bit rocky at the top, but then lots of fresh tracks. Instead of walking over the top we cut down right under the dam, then off to Grimentz for lunch. In the afternoon a quick blast through more fresh powder from Orzival to St Jean made a great day.

From the Orzival lift we saw this snowboarder having the ride of his life. Avoid freshly wind-loaded slopes in the afternoon sun! In an impressive display of solidarity 2 of his mates followed his track.
