The title of this blog, still skiing, may seem obvious, we are in fact, still skiing.....BUT this is skiing at its finest. Each morning we swing open the curtains holding our breath hoping to be greeted by sunshine. So far, so good. This morning up on snow was cloudless, the boys spent their time constructively, working on weight transfer, correct poling and perfect eye-to-norwegian girl-in front of you- technique.
Needless to say this place is full of very "fit" people. This place has it all, beautiful mountains, incredible skiers, skiing in the sun and homemade bread among many things. The crew of "americanos," as they have been affectionatly dubbed by the Norwegians have disocvered the secret afternoon hangout on the roof. The warm metal surface in direct mountain sun provides a perfect playground for some serious sun bathing and mingling. Norwegians must love the sun because day after day the overall skin tone in the dining room becomes a deeper shade of red. (I guess it is their national color) Both groups skied a solid amount today as we endeavour to fill our week with hours on snow. The older group logged an impressive 5 hours training today, so perhaps the halls will be a bit more peaceful tonight, save the ever constant practice of the "twerk" dance. You best ask later on that one, it is truly a long, strange story.
We are looking forward to a few more sunny days in the forcast as we burrow into our bags for our higher SPF options. Looks good as of now!
