High Hopes in the French Alps

Weather Limitations

The weather’s certainly changed, from sunny and stable to wet and grey! The snow although wet has resettled although somewhat transparant, on Varan and Plaine Joux launch. It’s been raining for most of the day…

Checked the webcams this morning and they were, well grim. Lots of heavy wet slushy snow, and poor visibility, so more pressing were the accounts a job that needed doing. Consequently, it was not a particularly physical day. No flying well not with the foehn and the rain just sealed the deal.

Tomorrow, the foehn is still present with dense cloud cover. Thursday the foehn is set to lessen with partial cloud break up, so  there may be a  possibility to fly in the offing.  I really hope so, am feeling hungry now to get out and fly… am so relieved that March and April for the first time in years… we’ll be free to fly and not be restricted with beginners, can’t wait to have a go at chasing some distance at last!!
