Sunny days

Posted on
March 15, 2009

March has finally returned to normal. After plenty of winter storms recently, we are back to normal March conditions, ie stonking sunny days with warmer temperatures. Sunglasses and strong sun cream are the norm now, plus baseball caps for the chosen few with little hair !?! Snow conditions are still excellent, even with the change in seasons. See the photo of me taken today by Harriet.

Last week was great fun. I enjoyed looking after a kids' group lesson of blue piste standard. They were made up of three Russians, three French and a girl from Hong Kong. No pictures of them for obvious reasons (permissions from all parents / instructor language limitations!) but what a lovely bunch. They seemed to be loving the sport, even though their instructor wasn't quite fluent in all of their native languages.... It was great to see them smiling every morning before the lesson started, and tired but satisfied when meeting up with their parents at the end. I'm still searching on the internet for 'one behind the other' in Russian though. Not to mention "Wait for me at the top of the lift, Mikhail!"

On Friday last week I took a day off, and tried to simulate a scene from the film 'Dumb and Dumber'. In other words I placed myself directly under the flight path of a busy airport, not Heathrow, but a more chilled out but active Méribel Altiport. What a buzz experiencing both the take offs and landings. Brownie points to those who can name the ski lifts in the background!

This week I'm meeting up again with some lovely ladies from Dublin that I first met in January. Their goal is to start the process of moving on from the trusted snowplough to the 'Holy Grail' of skiing, the parallel turn. Plus, Harriet is working 

hard on her skiing.....This morning we worked on her being more stacked for carving, in other words having a robust body position over the skis. She has really worked hard at this the last few visits, and it's paying off fantastically.

I've been back for about four weeks, and last winter seems like ages ago now. That's ok, because I love the changes of seasons,life never gets dull.
