Skiing is awesome!!

So today we finally got to go up and ski! And the one thing I rediscovered during the first trip down is that skiing is absolutely awesome! I just love it!

Ok…I’m not gonna lie and say I wasn’t a bit rusty at the beginning.
Just getting down to the slopes from the top was so strange. You kinda feel like Bambi on the ice the first 10 minutes, and your GS skis feels like DH skis. BUT when you do get it right, it’s the world’s most amazing feeling. You arc the turns and just keep pushing your limits! How much angle can I get? How much speed can I get out of each turn? It’s an incredible feeling!

Something I also got a little taste of today was the altitude! I got really nauseous and lightheaded in the middle of the session. The same thing happened last year when I got up here. The thing is you cover a lot of altitude in a small amount of time and for me that’s a challenge. This passes after the first couple of days so there is no problem, its just very uncomfortable when it happens!
I also feel my summer feet acting out. I would probably feel the same way if I was being squeezed inside shoes that was being waaaaay too small! Then again, this passes as well. Just need some getting used to!

The weather was great and that makes it even better!

Zermatt – first skicamp of the season

So…As you might have noticed, I have changed my homepage a little. I did it out of many reasons, but the biggest of them being that my old homepage was hard and difficult to update… Hope you find Your way around this one just as well though!

Anyhow… I’ve had a great summer chillaxing with friends and family.

On Sunday we arrived back here in Switzerland for our first camp for the next season. I would like to say the days has been awesome since we arrived, but that would be a big fat lie! The first day we were supposed to ski, it was closed because of the enormous amounts of rain, and today its actually sunny, but because of the weather yesterday they couldn’t groom the hill. Not that this is a crises for us, we are gonna stay here for a long time now, but I’m really exited to start up on snow now so hopefully this will turn around for tomorrow!
