Yes, we have bullied actor, legend and all round top bloke Jason Flemyng to do the weather report for us. He was up at Carrefour, we were up at Carrefour, one thing led to another and he put’s in a rather fine performance I think you’ll agree.

The weather report is a well known springboard to greatness so we’re going to have our people talk to his people…

even bigger news than us getting all star struck that we had 20cm of fresh snow last night and it’s cold again. So when Guy said “it’ll stay sunny for weeks” he was being a fool.

So tomorrow sun’s back out and if you’re lucky we’ll have a raft of photos for you… We can’t promise any celebrities though.

As another weather report slides by without a single mention of the word “epic”, we wanted you to be up to date on the latest from Verbier. And it’s late because somebody forgot to do one on Monday…

But after the Adventure Skiing video we also did a weather report Рyou see we wanted to simply bowl you over with another video of our spring skiing antics.

We hope you enjoy it. We did. Oh and there are a few more photos on our Facebook Page. You should ‘like’ it you know – terribly informative…

 

 

Yes, we have shed the boiling spring-like temperatures of late February and it’s gone all wintery again. I for one was a bit chilly up there today.

But we had about 20cm of fresh snow overnight and since the half-term chaos died down at the weekend with the last of the European holidays, it was pretty relaxed up there today.

Of course, don’t be fooled into thinking it’ll be pure powder skiing as there’s a pretty icy base underneath all this, but it’s great to get some fresh snow on the hill and if you don’t mind bouncing off the frozen base every turn or so, it’s really rather nice…

Epic, you might say.

Yes, Toby has been sacked as the director of the weather report and we’ve drafted in Nick to show us how to do arty things. I think you’ll agree it feels more like a sequence from and episode of Top Gear rather than the usual shaky weather report…

Once again Sophie steps in front of the camera, although if you’re all very good Kent will be doing one in the very near future. So behave yourselves.

 

Yes, Toby took over the direction of the weather report this week and he’s delivered a meaningful piece that allows him to both express his feelings and communicate them through the medium of his muse, Sophie, and some incidental jazz…

I think it’s hard to disagree that if the Baftas were just a week later it could have been a contender.

I know, it takes a while to get to Bruson. It’s not like hopping over to Savoleyres. But when you do it’s brilliant – like you’re in a tiny resort miles from anywhere and the crowds and queues you get in Verbier are very quickly forgotton.

And it’s especially useful when Verbier close because of too much snow or high winds. Which is precisely why happened yesterday and how we ended up there…

Meanwhile the snow is falling heavily again and I get the feeling tomorrow might be very interesting – loads of snow but probably a lot of wind and not a lot open.
