Skiing...... in Wales!!
Saturday, January 09, 2010

We've really been taking advantage of the snow and sunshine in Wales over the last couple of weeks and the last 2 days Barry and I did something I hadn't really thought I'd do in Wales - we went skiing!

Neither of us have touring skis so we carried our skis and boots up to the top of a couple of big snowy hills, swapped walking boots for ski boots and skied back down. Yesterday we went in the Ogwen Valley and took 2 hours to trudge up a long snowy ridge. I don't know how long it took us to get down, but it was much much quicker!! We stopped quite a few times to savour it.

Today we went with Nick, Matt & Mark into the Carneddi and had a great outing. We carried the skis up almost 600metres - and thankfully the snow was harder today so our ski boots didn't break through the surface as often and it wasn't that bad walking uphill. The others had touring bindings and skinned up the hill - it looked a lot easier and more fun... I definitely have to get a pair of touring skis! The downhill was great fun - not the best snow in the world but none of us cared, we were out skiing in our backyard - Barry and I could even see our house across the valley as we were walking up.

Nick & Matt have been working hard on a new instructinal DVD that they will be releasing in the next month or so called "Kayak Essentials"

I haven't been working hard enough on my canoeing DVD, "This is Canoeing" but I'm back on the case tomorrow morning and will stop myself from looking out of the window for the next week or so to try to get the editing finished.
