Montriond France XMAS 2007 - 034


I spent 6 extreme days (including xmas) in Montriond, France, with the coolest mates in the world!

A few months ago Jeremy and Bec organised a ‘orphan’s xmas’ for people living overseas who wouldn’t be spending xmas with their folks/family. Pretty much everyone who planned to be there did make it, except for Mik and his sister Romy who got caught up in the delays in Heathrow – poor buggers!

It was really great to catchup with everyone and spend xmas hanging out. The girls cooked up a fantastic xmas lunch/dinner, and ‘us blokes’ got the fire going outside 🙂 .


SKIING
It started out a bit crappy, I tackled a woman in the first minutes I was on the snow! Errrrrrrrr.
I took a 1 hour lesson which made all the difference, and got some tips from Jeremy on how to really carve up the snow of Avoriaz. By the 3rd day I was able to fall face first down a RED run! Clever stuff hey!

Alex – poor bastard! His carved it up a little too hard and stacked it onto his shoulder – I think he tore a lot ligaments – and had to be helicoptered off the mountain! Then he walked 2 hours in the freezing snow from Montriond to our Chalet! Now that is one hardcore dude.
