Sarah Riesen drove over from Baar, Switzerland to ski with us in Solden, Austria. The girls took turns to baby-sit little Ben, giving Sarah a chance to get out on the slopes and have a blast, along with Cara Stimson and Stewart Pedler- and she certainly did - this was her first run! This was from the top of Gaislachkogl all the way down to Mittelstation - certainly glad of the mid-morning grippy snow on the steeper parts, being a boarder!
Anna and I spent New Year's with the Riesen clan, Cara and Thomas. Cara and Thomas drove over from Germany, and were absolute gems giving us rides to the mountain.
Great conditions on the 2nd day (the 2nd Jan is also a public holiday in Switzerland!). I don't remember enjoying powder as a skier beginner as much as Cara and Thomas did. 'Powder Cara' is born...Would you believe Thomas had only been on a dry -slope before...? And they both took the long Black all the way to the bottom - amazing!
Also great soundtracks introduced by MC Benny...he did also do a bit of sledging which I missed - and he broke his sled!
Sorry I didn't get any of you this time, Dani - too early in the morning, and then you were baby-sitting later! But I did make amends: vimeo.com/45355827
