My friend Tom Christmas must have been a good boy this year, as his early season trip to Tignes was unbelievably good for the first week of December. I put together this video as a reminder of how good the snow was. Please excuse the snowboarding, but I’ve been know to dabble in it from time to time.
I made the video using a free and open source editor for Linux called OpenShot, which is the best I have used so far. If you are interested in trying out OpenShot and Linux you can download a live DVD from http://www.openshot.org/ and test out this free software without messing up your Windows computer.
Since making the film, we have seen a rise in temperature and a spot of rain in Tignes, which has played havoc with my off-piste skiing schedule, but the pistes have remained soft and are in good condition. I just skied down to Les Breviers and skinned back up and it looks like with a bit of piste-bashing the runs down to bottom will be open soon.
Armed with my video camera, I hope to get plenty more footage from Tignes so watch this space.
