Can't wait. At last some proper sport.
Unless I can engineer some time on a ski patrol, doubt I'll be going this year. Pretty fooked off at the moment, what with shite work and shiter other stuff. Would be nice to be working on a hill again.
The closest I get, is picking up the smashed skiers and boarders with their broken backs and pelvises from Grenoble and other such places. The tempation to write 'fookin idiot who thought they were too good for lessons', on their notes is often temping.
For those interested, and going to the slopes this year, GoOutdoors are doing 60% off of ski kit at the moment. Remember - no such thing as cold weather, just inappropriately dressed people.
