5 Chuffs Please

Swiss Francs, CHFs, we call them chuffs.

Great first day.

It wasn’t super smooth to start with, but the afternoon was excellent. This morning, we were just out of sync. Riding in the Flims area we just seemed to catch trails, then lifts, then trails and lifts again. No good riding…

There was also no sign of the missing board bag, which meant Ciara had to hire equipment. But on the plus side we got a sweet little Forum Young Blood, the setup was pretty nice, enjoyable to ride.

Also, the afternoon’s riding was much better. Following a sunny lunch we headed up to Laax, to ride a mixture of powder, park and piste. It was all good. We still spent a good amount of time getting our bearings in a new resort, but for sure, it was a great afternoon.

A great afternoon that ended up with a few beers in Laax, we missed the last free bus, so ended up with a full car driving back to Flims, with me riding in the boot.

Continuing on the beer theme, I’m writing this post now. In the backgroung, afterbang is playing. Great first day.

Tomorrow we’re getting a tour from the guys at Snowmotion – which should be great. We’re all looking forward to it. More on that to come.

A closing comment from the Network, probably the beer talking:

We can do back flips…

I’m not sure about that… we’ll see.
