Still Not Bored !!

Kate and I arrived in resort on the 4th December. Its now the 13th January and I'm still not bored. As Big Phil says its always gutsy to hop off the Hampster Wheel but it brings great rewards.

A zen-like stillness descends as I stand at the top of the ridge, knee deep in powder, as the turns just happen I am comfortable with the speed and then in a flash am at the end, short of breath, looking up at my trail visible, captured, alone in the powder above. Still a few more months of this.......have not made any entries for a while as I am aware of how self absorbed all this skiing may seem, but it is so much more than that, in the mountains, improving, conquering fear and breathing deeply.....exhausting, but my battered body just holding up to the forces involved.

Skyped Bert today for the first time in 3 weeks as he returns to Melbourne.....apparently they don't have the internet in Tasmania. I still can't believe he is not coming over to ski with Kate and I. The force is strong in the boy and our time together will come, young Skywalker xChalet Bonnevie......home at the top of Le Fornet
