Sunny Sunday in the Mountains

Markus and i went to Flumserberg today for our first ski of the season, ahead of skiferien in a week's time!

It was a beautiful, warm sunny Sunday. We did a few warm up runs by ourselves, then took a lesson with a teacher who got us ski-ing all across the area.

I won the "who can fall over the least times" competition, much to Markus's disgust. Markus: 3 falls, Helen: 1 fall.
I was felled though by a child from behind - a child who was big enough to know better and was going very fast. Direct hit which took us both out. No injuiries but I was a bit out of sorts after.

By the time the lesson was over, we were both a bit exhausted, so had lunch, then got train home. Both completely knackered by the time we reach the flat :-)
