Yes, very nice indeed.....Somewhere at home I have a piccie of me doing some OP in about the same amount of powder as the first piccie...Looking very cool too. I also have the picture of the wipeout that followed !

I am buried up to my neck in powder and it took me a while to get myself out !

Hope you are going to take loads of pictures while you are away.......

Indeed......

Out today and we bought my (currently) 2 Yr 11 month old some 'Ski' stuff.....He spent the next hour running around the house saying 'I'm a skiier man, I'm a skiier man' SO I guess this means we are going next year......

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

We need one of these ECLIPSe.gif for Skiing......Anyone subscribe to a Ski Forum we can nick one from.......

Come on then, turn us all Green (except Kermie who is already green), tell us what you got up to.......

Well you know....

There was a huge dump just before we got there and we had blue skies for nearly a week so I skied lots. Then the weather closed and and it dumped and dumped and dumped, one day / night we got 3 feet. It didn't stop me going out but it made it more difficult to ski as I don't have proper powder skis so I decided it was time to learn what this boarding lark was really about.

Well all I can say is I know why boarders go after powder, it amazing to have feet of fluffy fresh stuff underneath you while you 'surf' over it. It's much easier than skiing mind you, I was on the steep stuff in the tress in no time at all.

Having said all that, on the groomed stuff I still prefer my skis, they are much faster

Yup, did a bit of boarding about 10 years ago and decided it was 100% and off piste game....

Found my planks and Boots in the Loft today, must get them down and check them out.....
