Today Rob and I went and watched the Nendaz Freeride comp held at the Plan Du Fou. It was fairly extreme just getting to the viewing area (quite a hike up fluffy, not-at-all-compacty snow), but we were rewarded to find not only a DJ but also a bar and burger bar! We had brought a picnic and a bottle of wine (the latter was quite an aid for the not-so-easy ski back to the piste!).
After two weeks of sun and no snow, the mountain was in surprisingly good shape but the sun decided today of all days, to disappear and make the light very flat. Tough for the competitors but they still managed to throw down some amazing lines. Well done to them!
