Dramatic skies

Posted on
March 24, 2010

Over the last few days we've seen some amazing skies here in Méribel. Last week we had countless "bluebird" days and rising temperatures, bright sunshine with rich blue skies and alpine sunsets. But over the weekend and the beginning of this week we experienced some mucky weather. However the precipitation didn't dampen Chris's spirits and enjoyment of his annual skiing holiday.

I've skied with Chris for many years, and I always forget how much he enjoys to hear different words and descriptions of the technical and psychological aspects of skiing. Here are just a few; commitment, patience, smearing, squashing, pressing, kitchen scales, assume the position, checklist, celebration, and the list goes on.......

Each of these words and descriptions will mean slightly different things to different people. The art of teaching is to find the perfect word or phrase to act as a trigger for an action. Trigger words can empower the brain, and distract it away from what it thinks is the the correct way to ski. Because of the mucky weather we benefited from empty pistes: note how empty the Altiport green piste is.

Chris progressed really well again this holiday. He now looks much more relaxed on his skis, and is more energy efficient.The last two days have returned back to stunning spring weather, sunny and warm. However at the end of the week the temperatures are forecast to drop again accompanied by snowfall. Game on. Plus Harriet will soon be on her way back to Méribel for the Easter break. Life just keeps getting better.
