Down Time

So we all took the day off today. I woke up with a nasty hangover and a view of fresh snow falling outside. Awesome.

At first the thought of missing a day on the hill was bugging me out. But, given that there was zero visibility up there, I had no pre-paid pass that was going to waste, and tomorrow is gonna be a tough day with some walking and hiking involved, a rest day wasn’t such a bad idea.

Up until around 4 pm it was snowing consistently, and pretty heavy. Unfortunately it’s still a little too warm at town-level which stopped the new snow laying. But the temperature level overall has dropped, and no doubt there’s going to be a lot of fresh snow waiting for us tomorrow – which is supposed to be clear.

So three or four of us are going to do a guided tour tomorrow. It’s not in Laax, we’ve got to drive around 40 minutes tomorrow morning to the start point. Wax the boards, check the beepers, pack the bags and check camera batteries. With the luck we’ve had with the weather conditions, it should be sick!

    DUDE! You took a day off and you didn’t go to the Geneva Motorshow?!?! Bah. That ticket’s still on offer, if you’re interested…

    Hey mate, hah! Thanks for the offer mate, but I don’t think anyone here is going to be able to snap it up. Besides, I was in no state on Saturday to be driving to Geneva…
