 I did an excellent 2 day course with Alison Culshaw at OffPiste Performance at the weekend. The course was run as CPD for British Mountain Guides with the idea of giving guides some basic coaching skills for helping clients with their skiing. In fact I'll using all the tips in my own skiing too (except perhaps the skiing-with-your-eyes-closed exercise)! 

Lots more snow falling in the Val d'Hérens and across the Alps. We had a good ski this morning at la Forclaz, which was deserted except for the workers preparing the area for this weekend - it opens on Saturday. 

Anyone going to La Fouly for the uphill race on Saturday? I just noticed last year's winning time for the 600m ascent was 19 minutes 14 seconds!
