Some skiing is happening

This is written during an industrialized snow fun week in La Plange in the south of France where a couple of caver friends are running a chalet for a season (including the guy on the left in this picture) where 10 other cavers have descended to avoid Xmas. At the end of this week half of them (including us) will head off to Bull Pot Farm to see the New Year in with the usual dose of squalor.

It was uncomfortable letting our friends do all the cooking and cleaning and tidying for us, but that lasted about 6 hours until post-skiing knackeredness set in. It’s hard work. How did this activity take off to this incredible extent?

Tomorrow we’re trying out some of this snowboarding nonsense. Expecting massive carnage on the gentlest slopes, having concluded that our crap style of skiing has plateaued out on all the pistes we can find. Must get to bed. Things have improved since I have sworn off “Chalet wine”, which is one step below “House wine”. Gave me a headache for most of the day.
