Right, REALLY no proper blog tonight as it was Presentation Evening (yes, the photos, er....sorry!) and it's now very late, I'm completely destroyed and I'm typing using a mixture of RSA Touch Typing, blind intuition and the Force.
Well, where do we start today? The fog had lifted by the morning and we have were able to see today. This also meant that everyone else was able to see us, which for some was quite embarrassing seeing some of the fancy dress costumes people wore! We had the customary group photo on the hill outside the restaurant before we all headed off for a first run down the cruisey blue en masse.
After a lot of snowfall last night and all of today the students had a hard day of skiing cut out for them. However all coped very well with the huge moguls and very little visibility. Groups 3 and 4 have massively improved with considerably less stacking than previous days. Group 3 (as per video) did their first Red run from top to bottom with only 2 minor controlled lowerings. They all did amazingly and were very happy with what they had achieved. Groups 1 and 2, as per usual, were going everywhere at speed.
No actual proper blog tonight folks as it's gone midnight, everyone has gone to bed and left me all on my lonesome to sort photos (yes yes I know, world's smallest violin playing just for you etc). In summary, they skiied today. The End. ......More? ......Er ok they skied a lot. In fog. LOTS of fog.
We were up bright and early ready for the first lift at 9am. All those that had been only on the dry slope made their way over to the nursery slopes and after a few short runs managed to get on the button lift. They did so well that we managed to get them all up to the top of the mountain before lunch, something we have never done before. All managed to get back down to the restaurant for lunch some later than others. There were some very relieved and hungry students, (and a boiled egg aka Erin!) most were still smiling!
