Today was our first real day in Andorra! And it was pretty amazing... Cos we went up, up, and further up in The ski lift all the way to the top of the mountain... Ok so maybe not all the way to the top but definitely in the top 1/3 ;) Hayls and I were initially taught on the kiddies/ learners slope which is pretty flat and has a cool mini conveyor belt to go back up to the top of it... Hayls and i both had a bit of trouble getting off this belt though as we are not used to having long planks attached to our feet... Twice I fell right at the top and my ski came off and got stuck in the machine... Oops ;) I did finally get the hang of it thou ;)
So the rules with skiing are:
French fries = go faster
Pizza = slow down
But the key with pizza is that you mustn't cross your skis or you'll just fall over!
But another important thing to remember is that if you are about to fall off the mountain and pizza is not slowing you down... Just fall over ;)
By the end of the day hayls and I had the kiddies slopes pretty waxed and we were starting on the bigger slopes.. I managed to get down them pretty well which was nice ;)
At the end of the day we managed to get out of bed after our naps and force our sore bodies down to a rather funny restaurant which had a mounted deer on the wall which had a Christmas hat a big bow and snow goggles... It was pretty funny...
The food in the restaurant was lovely home made deliciousness and lovely warm wine... Just what we needed... Then it was home time to flop back into bed and pass out... Which we all did happily ;)
