We have arrived! After a brief (28 hour) coach trip we arrived at our hotel at about 8pm in time for a tasty dinner and fitting of ski equipment. Everyone then collapsed into bed for a good night’s sleep.

The first day out on the slopes was brilliant. The temperature varied between minus 8 and minus 1, but the sun was shining and the slopes weren’t that busy. As a result all the non-skiers did superbly well and were working their way down blue runs, and taking chair lifts up again, by the end of the day. Better than expected progress!
