I had signed up for a beginners course to better my off piste skiing which took place last weekend up in Andermatt.
It had been snowing for a couple of days and didn't stop until Sunday afternoon, perfect. Albeit it was extremely windy on Saturday and -15c on both days!
Nonetheless we had a great group of avid skiers (8) and David, our mountain guide for weekend, were all great and up for it.
It's amazing what a few good tips and a bit of one on one instant feedback can do.... so after an unintentional somersault and a head plant or two in the powder and one or two other crashes in the powder, by Sunday afternoon we were all skiing knee deep in powder!!
It was fantastic!
Many thanks to Höhenfiber, David and all the group for a great weekend.
Chris, Sarah, Roy and Annika blogging around to keep in touch with family and friends all around.
