Our first full day off skiing was met with sunny and very pleasant conditions.
As I expected, Jack has taken to skiing like a duck to water, admittedly there was a few tears the first one or two attempts on the first day, but now his ability improves by the hour. We got out on the snow early, and it was worth it. Very uncrowded and the 7klm long green beginners run was groomed to perfection just for us. There had been a light snowfall through the night up higher and is was like skiing on cream . Smiles around.

Ella was into it all. This photo isn’t exactly how she is handling this skiing caper, she can’t quite understand what or how to snowplough. Pizza, Spagettie just doesn’t work. At one stage, she took this stance and took off downhill at a rapid pace. James took off after her and she was heading for a serious drop off at the side of the run. Things didn’t look good and Natalie’s holiday was heading for a disaster, as both daughter and husband were heading at high speed towards what could not be a good result. Some instinct clicked in and Ella bailed out, falling at quite some speed luckily a mound of snow on the side stopped her, but no such luck for James as his speed to catch Ella couldn’t be stopped in time and over the steep edge into the snow covered pines. It took some time to excavate him from the scene and luckily no one hurt.
Gotta love a day like this on the snow
