2nd day on the piste
we know what to do and are smoothly proficient until we get on the ski lift. It goes without me and then unceremoniously chucks us off at the top. steve says the bloke who picked us up and pushed us 'out of the danger zone' was bored as no one had fallen off yet. We made his day.
Lorissa was really pleased to see us as she had been trying to teach a 4 year old very upset child and we promised we would not cry too.
Steve started off well and practiced getting out of his favourite hole and then really got nearly enthusiastic.
I spent all day learning pizza and today had to stop that and learn french fries- its very technical.
Awesome Sailie (thats Lorissa) and she decides I'm ready for the next slope. I would like to say that due to the lateness in the season and the lack of snow the next slope up was a black run- it certainly was for me and I had to approach a tactical fall effect otherwise I may have died in a nasty accident. Lorissa says 'what did we do wrong'? Er- get on skis and go on that slope? I LOST MY HAT- I was going so fast. Luckily Steve only filmed the last bit but it doesn't look good.
We decide to carry on practicing on the beginners slope with the little kids as Lorissa says we don't need any more lessons now. After a few more goes we feel we have experienced all there is to skiing and we make a smooth exit getting on and off the ski lift with skill and poise (running for it)
Awesome Dudes over and out
