Our last ski was a hot one!
We left the house in flip-flops and ski trousers (a new combination that I'm not convinced is likely to catch on..) and drove the bends up the mountain to Oz, with the windows down, the sun high and the birds in full Spring song. The short drive is always beautiful; waterfalls are positively charging at this time of year, such is the extent and speed of which snow is melting higher up.
I know the snow has only really hit the rest of the UK in the last few weeks but we have had pretty full on conditions right through January and February. The skiing opened on New Years Day and when the weather has allowed it’s been open every day since. Unusually though the snow has been down to valley level nearly constantly during that time and that has made trying to get to work and school very tricky. Some days of course it has been so bad the schools have been shut and that makes everyone’s life easy but on many days we have a very difficult mile and half to get to the main road.
We decided to spend one last weekend in the snow, and set off to stay with friends in Lenzerheide. The real reason for the trip was to have dinner at our new favourite Winter restaurant (more on that in a separate post), but some snow play was also on the agenda.
So for two days last week the sun came out and we could see the tops of the hills for a change, looking very white!
