La Plagne, Tuesday 09/03

Up late after debauchery of night before. Me, TC, and JW managed to get on slopes by 10 and headed for 1800 lift and Plagne centre via Golf lift. After few runs on and around Colorado met others for some dirty nosh at Croque le grille (croque le noir per JW). Made mistake of going to nearest restaurant off piste as coke 6 EURO a pop (no pun intended) and meagre portions.  After lunch took telecabin to La Grande Rochette and, at JA’s request, went down Kamikazi and long red into Champagny. Clouded over, and came back via colorado. Grilled chicken and dauphinoise spuds for dinner. Superb lemon cheesecake to finish. Played articulate in evening. Highlights were Robyn (acupuncture as ‘that thing women have done’), JB (“what a drum person does”), me (“grows on tress and thrives in clean air”), JA (faced with ‘despite’ and have already passed, giving up with a minute left).
