Cloudy Skiing Day

The second day of skiing was super cloudy with not much sun at all. But it had snowed over night and the snow conditions on the slopes were even better than the day before. It was a bit colder so I decided to wear 4 layers instead of two. After a couple of hours of skiing we headed to L’Anfionne and all had hot chocolate – so good, especially the ones that came with a shot :) Later during the day, Paul, Michael and I decided to take the black piste that looked so pretty from the lift.. it was very pretty but much more exhausting than I thought.

Welcome to Winter Wonderland!

Doesn’t it look so cute and idyllic? It must be so nice to spend Christmas here. Especially if you are usually used to rainy instead of white Christmas..

Black Piste – The First Run

So it turns out that the black pistes are not as well prepared as the other slopes. For this black piste this resulted in a bumpy, powdery slope with black steepness. Fun. Though it would have been much more fun if my knees were just a little bit stronger (like at least 10x stronger..). Then I would be able to ski down in one go rather than having little breaks after 4 to 5 turns. Paul (our friend who was born on skis) did not really need any of these breaks but he was patiently adjusting to our speed. Also I think it must have looked incredibly funny to see everyone fall down at least once. And yes, also Paul slipped (ha!) and there was another guy on skis who started to ski down so beautifully and then fell down head first into snow haha. He was fine, but lost both of his skis and had a hard time getting them back on his feet.. :)

    Ahhh so beautiful! I have to say I find it a bit disorientating when it’s a cloudy skiing day it’s like there is white everywhere!
