27th January

Today turned out better than expected – we had a fair bit of sunshine from time to time, and it wasn’t nearly as cold as we were told it would be. :) We also had about 20 cms of nice fresh snow as well!! :D

While skiing down the bottom of the Combe du Thuit with my second class we spotted these idiots trying to make their way down through the rocks – that would have been fine and there is a way round the trees to the left of them – but no! they had to sideslip down the rocks on their backsides!! What morons!!

snowboarders being stupid!

Idiot number 1 just starting to sideslip – he continued right down those rocks on his bottom – ouch!

More snowboarders being stupid

Idiot number 2 apparently managed to slide down on his belly!

It should be said that there was a girl with these two who did go round and managed the descent without falling, drama or amusing watching people! Good for her!

I downloaded on the eggs at the end of teaching, and couldn’t resist taking a photo of these totally ludicrous signs where you get out! :o Firstly, you wouldn’t believe that people would just continue to sit in the eggs once you’ve arrived :o but even better is the terrible translation on the white sign that’s been there all the 22 years I have! Not even a literal translation :D I hope it amuses you.

Panneaux aux Deux Alpes

Crazy signs when you arrive at the bottom of the white eggs

    Yes! However we did wait around to make sure they were all right before we skied off!

    They may be behaving like idiots, but it’s quite amusing, though.
