Three. Shcuno.

My third ski post.

The Black Run. After a baptism of fire, by Thursday I had got to grips with my skis and was eager to try a black run. So I did. Without even falling WOO. That afternoon was also super sunny so we decided to take a break at the reggae bar, dancing and sunbathing as we sipped our hot chocolates. Hot chocolate was a big deal to us - we knew the piste map based on the nearby cafe or bar. It was good.



The Last Ski. The Friday (our last day) was snowy and we were all pretty tired by this point so not everybody wanted to ski. But Emily & I did. And so when we left the others in the cafe for one more run, it turned into skiing all the way down the home run (much much longer). The run was clear and super pretty from the fresh snow so we made the most of it and tried out the steeper route. I'm glad we did despite the ice. Below: Emily in red.



The Gondola. When Emily & I came back to meet everyone in the cafe, we had a long long break. Louise, Australian Archie and myself stayed for so long in fact, that we missed the last bus for a few hours. Which meant ordering more chips & drinks. Obviously. When we eventually came out to find Louise's skis covered in snow, we decided to do what we had been joking about all week. We rode the gondola. Three times. It was really funny, especially when we reached the top and bottom and had to quickly explain for them not to take our board & skis off.




Shcuno. 'Shcuno' is the process of showering, eating cake and playing uno. This was our daily post - skiing routine and I definitely recommend it to anyone. Especially the cake. And uno with the additional rules. The cake deserves a special mention, along with the food on the trip as a whole. Everything was made from scratch and tasted glorious.


Friday Night. On Friday night, a few of us younger ones from the group went bowling. After nearly breaking the alley many times (my technique is terrible) and taking gazillions of selfies on Louise's ipad, I managed to come third, yippeeee. When we came home, Louise, Louis & Australian Archie stayed up playing cards and talking while Emily & myself sang our way through my playlist into the early hours of the next morning. (We're definitely going for X-factor. Ahem.)

  3. I've been scrolling through your blog and all of your photos are beautiful! They almost look like Polaroids. Do you use film?

    This looks like one hell of an adventurous day. Skiing *and* bowling? Now that's my kind of girl.
