Wow. What a contrast.
6-7cm of snow yesterday and the slopes are superb. On top of that they are fairly empty as people are back at work. So today was an excellent days snow boarding. I spent most time with Mel coaching her (like I’m an expert!?) down some reds – and she seemed to change into a boarder today actually riding the board with great control.
The only downside was on a chair lift with 3 seats. Mel normally takes the middle, me the one on the right. Today though, she slipped before getting on so I helped her up then as the chair came she took the right hand seat…. Meaning my arm that was about to hold the seat got caught and there was no where for me to go apart from spinning off into a pile of snow….
Bizzarely Mel didn’t actually realise where I’d gone – she must’ve thought there was an invisible 4th seat… Only another bruise for the collection.
Did a bit off piste today in fresh powder which was most excellent, though you have to keep moving fairly fast else you sink (like wakeboarding). I looked like a snowman at times, but it was excellent.
Off to bar tonight for live music – so come on everyone get over here and join us!!
