So we’re now starting the second week of our BASI prep course with Ski Focus, and so far we’ve all survived the bumps, but still have a loooong way to go before we match the skills of the German team..
Team Germany ruling the bumps (apologies it’s not embedded, but it’s worth the click I promise!).
The skies have stayed blue and the snow has stayed impeccable, the lifts, however, have not been so well behaved meaning we were greeted with a bit of cross-country-style skiing this morning when the t-bar stopped working. Still adjusting to the altitude we were all left a little out of puff, but enjoyed a run from the top of the glacier down to Val Claret down MM to start our day as a result.
Rosie dog is well and is now able to frolic on the snow/ice with the help of her booties, although occasionally she trips over them but soldiers on to perform some beautiful pirouettes!
We are now down to just 5 in our training group, but this does mean that we are now divide evenly into pairs when going up the t-bar.. a simple pleasure but it’s nice to talk to someone on the way up!
BASI prep group (minus me!) week 2
Oh, and how could I forget to mention the most important parts of the past week.. THE CAKES (well, tarts really)!! Bought by the lovely James (green and yellow.. not to be confused with Gabriele.. see below) when we had our training group over for dinner. Oh. My. Goodness they were delicious. Chocolatey, caramelly, biscuity, fruity goodness… mmmmmmm…..
Separated at birth..?
All in all life is grand and with Tori’s 25th birthday tomorrow, it’s shaping up to be a snowtastic week.. x
