Skiing - again!

We have had a couple of inches of fresh powder in the last 48 hours and temperatures have plummeted. The grey clouds gradually lifted this morning to reveal the most wonderful winter blue. There was really no hesitation - the skis were calling! So we headed to Guzet this afternoon and briefly met up with Lee and Ian. Whilst they were challenging themselves on offpiste black stuff, we flexed our muscles on the pisted reds which I still found challenging in parts. But I felt wonderfully in control and able to handle whatever the pistes had to offer. Even my pole plants and turns were taking on new dimensions by the time we called it a day. It is a lovely feeling, to be able to relax and really enjoy the skiing!
