Christmas

So, we are back in Trafoi. Our first couple of days here we've had temps down to -15, (brrrr..), snowstorms and we've been boarding blind due to no visibility on the slopes. 

 Here John is in the Hotel Tannenheim boot-room getting ready for a big day out. The ski bus leaves at 08.40 every morning to go to Sulden and we are back in the hotel at 17.00. Pretty big day.
Then the Deblins family from Kauaii came over. 30 hours travelling, jet lagged to the max and they landed right in the middle of a snowstorm and zero visibility on their first day here.
Enough to put any skier off but these guys are tough. We went to Sulden which is on a glazier and colder than most other places. Their first day there they could not see a thing so it was good to bring them back on their second day to brilliant sunshine, 0 degrees and no wind.

And what is even better with the snowfall we had the last two days, the groomed runs were smooth and nice, also since it is just before Xmas there is hardly anyone around up here so you feel like you are boarding all by yourself. Can't beat it.
