This winter has been a total failure so far and it is all but over, I went up into the mountains last Sunday we built a kicker for jumps and in one hour it was not worth staying, the temperature was plus 5 by 11.00 and the snow that was there just became wet and heavy, so we have had to confine ourselves to the man made snow on the piste, everyone keeps saying that they cannot remember a winter like this but at least we have not had the rain they have in England….
At the end of January I once again got roped into being a slalom gate judge for an international ski competition, pretty amazing for someone who knows very little about ski-ing but it is not difficult and this is the second year for me so I breezed through, it is a good test of your winter gear though, just standing in one place for two days in the cold tests everything.
Even Maria’s bees have been seen out and about on some of the warm days, mind you, we could still get some pretty mean weather right up till the end of April.
Today I am having a day indoors, no snow boarding for a few days, I crashed big time yesterday and dislocated my shoulder, fortunately it went back in as I got up from the crash but it did bring tears to my eyes at the time, why do we do these things eh!!!!!
Sorry but no pictures today, it has not been very photogenic weather but will try for some next time, hope the rain has stopped over there in the UK.
