Today was lesson three of five for the Cern Ski Club. Sunshine and fresh snow were the perfect ingredients for this ski day after a gray week in the valley. The week passed quickly with some fun, muddy runs and a several meals with friends, but in January, my posts and pictures are only ski-ski-ski. Although there hasn't been a ton of snow, conditions have been surprisingly good and fresh for the Saturday club trips. The slopes have been extra quiet so far this season since the weather has been mild, but the resorts are generally more crowded in February with the schools taking two week ski breaks. We've been happy to have the run of the mountains this month.
I've been really excited to spend more time off piste in lessons this season and getting an introduction to avalanche safety and rescue. As usual with the club, our instructors are fantastic and our groups are lots of fun. I haven't dropped my phone off a lift yet, so that's also a plus.
