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.
I had found the answer to all my problems, I thought.
A very generous Australian couple had after years of work and dedication decided to raffle off their Island Resort with tickets costing $49, what a great idea!
I jumped on board and bought my tickets (obviously checking with the boss that she would come with me if i did win!) with my fingers crossed and daydreaming of what could be I waited patiently for the draw to happen... drum rolls....
Back to daydreaming :-(
Well this is where the couple started, daydreaming, taking a big step out of the dreary office world to follow that dream of adventure and to venture to new horizons.
Would you take that step??
