The kids learning to ski

Post by chrislandy » Mon Mar 14, 2016 5:16 am

I thought I'd share this, I don't usually do the proud dad showing off thing but the kids did so well this weekend on their second ski lesson I couldn't contain myself!

4 & 5, they even went up the button lift by themselves!

No snowdome around here unfortunately :(

I learnt to ski at the same place 25 years ago!

To follow up on this, just got back from the last week of the season in Bagneres-de-Luchon, France, in the Pyrenees.

I also tried skiing for the 1st time in 20+ years (been boarding since), I can't understand why I kept boarding for so long!!

Excellent results.

Nice to see they are still open there.

I was on the Stubai Glacier on Sunday. Had a fantastic day for my Season Closing.

Season and my first pair of homemade skis Statistics are:
8 Days skiing
Max Speed: 99 Km/h
Distance: 223.7 Km
Vertical: 35112 m

Much less than normal... But I was on holiday in New Zealand for a while.
