22nd December - Gary and I have a refresher ski lesson with Carlos in the snow @ Ortesei

Up the mountain for a private ‘refresher lesson’ with Carlos. I was faring pretty well on the beginner slopes. Gary needed a little more work as he had only skied once before. Beginner slopes can give you a false sense of capability….something I found out when I got to the steeper slopes in the afternoon….smoothly carved turns gave way to messy desperation turns and stops.

Nevertheless Gary and I managed a relaxing long lunch at a restaurant overlooking the beginners slopes watching a snow board class with students Carrie, Erin and Martin disguised as snowboarders.
