piste life

today was one of the best days that i've had so far in switzerland. which, considering swiss life is bloody fantastic, is really saying something.

today i went skiing for the first time. it was *so* much fun. when i last lived here i didn't get on that well with snowboarding and was worried i wasn't cut out for piste life of course i have a lot to learn and i took some nasty falls today but i could really see how much progress i was making.

the weather was terrible and visibility was poor but this meant there were hardly any people on the piste which was perfect for me. so excited to go again. and again. and again...

here is a little video raffaele took of me. he was a brilliant teacher. really patient and often pushed me up the slope to ski back down before we thought i was ready for the lift.


  1. Woo hoo, go you. You look great. Well done.

  2. Yay that brings back memories, I love skiing and really am not very good. It is so much fun, I suspect you will be whizzing down the slopes in no time.

  3. thanks both! i'm not even aiming to have any style or finesse in the end. just want to enjoy going down the piste again and again. so much fun to be had!
