If ever there was a strong sense of deja vu then this is it. Probably because we are back in the same house for the third year in a row, with (mostly) the same crowd.
Along with the usual family gathering of Noodle, Electric Pete and Toolkit Tim although Brixton Boy is not here this year as he’s on his Beers of the World Tour. Blenda and co are here from Hong Kong and Captain Colin arrived last night.
Saturday was a slow one for most as we’d arrived quite late and Shivs and Blenda stayed up most of the night and tried to drink all the wine. They weren’t first out of the traps in the morning so, as usual, it was Toolkit, Pete and me who were dressed and off to the mountain for some turns.
KLM had decided not to send Tim’s boots with him and the rest of his luggage, so he had to hire boots and once were were ready it was on the Fitzimmons Express and away we went.
A stunning day in the sun with good skiing above the Emerald and Red chairs and a bit icy / skiid off below.
Yesterday was not as nice – it was snowing and windy… but net result was at least another 3 in of snow, which will refresh the top.
The kids start their ski camp today so we are up early (06.30and ready to go…. so much for a holiday!
