Day Three - Hill Closed

 

Today we woke up to torrential rain which thankfully was snow higher up!  The rain and the wind closed the hill today which meant we had to find other ways to play..  Firstly we had games on the pitches in front of the accommodation, then we walked round the lake to the sports hall for a couple of hours where we played basketball and volleyball.  After walking home for a rest we headed back out to go swimming on mass, great fun as long as I dont get splashed!!  We had a few heroes on the courts today, Oliver Campbell, Craig Miller, Eilidh Ryan and Patrick Brawley pulled off a couple of wild moves!!  A great time was had by all and we headed home for another Italian Soiree, more spagetti Bolognaise, excellent.. 

 

Day Four - Powder Day

 

Today was fantastic, all the snow from the day before gave us great fresh tracks and lovely powder.  The weather managed to hold all day and although a little cold we had a magic day of GS Skiing...  Mark set his course on the higher piste and Viki , Ali & Craig set their course on Champange....  The kids had lots of runs today in the fresh snow and in the course, the groups all had video today which will allow them to see this evening how they are skiing.  At the moment Marks group are on a hike, Craig is doing video feedback, Ali is in the ski room and viki is doing core work...  Gillian & I are sitting with our feet up!!  Tonights dinner is Soiree Savoyarde, will let you know what that turned out to be tommorrow..  Day five tommorrow and the kids are on Slalom skis.  The finicular still poses  a challenge in the morning, Owen was the victim today and was flattened in the rush, he lives to show the girls the scars!!

 

au revoir
