    we organise certain bars for everyone but you don't have to go to them. last night was great fun, at least 20 who stayed out all night all together. I think this morning might be a slow one.

    Chilling in our room with a vanilla coke after a good intro to skiing. Been on 4 slopes so far, can stop but turning proving... interesting on the steeper slopes.
    Vanilla Coke? I am jealous, it's rare to find these days. Glad you've mastered the art of stopping, as long as you can stop you can do anything else.

    Everyone's photos look stunning so far!

    what are you guys up to now?

    can you guys ski when you like during the day or do they open the area at certain times of the day?

    how are the rest of the TSR members faring? any incidents?

    Amazing night last night. Hope for more of the same tonight. Not a fan of this sleep in with a hangover rubbish, some of us were on the slopes at 9, power through I say...

    On a sadder note, just been through the park and its enormously cut up (to be expected I suppose) and only has pretty big jumps disappointingly.

    You ski depending on when the lifts are running, from 9 to 5 i think... Maybe earlier than that.

    Got some nice pics today but can't upload i'm afraid.

    Think we might be off to tiger cafe in a bit to watch the united match, so if anyone wants to join us we'll see you there

    A quick run down from me.

    Friday/Saturday was coach to the resort. We missed our ferry meaning a two hour wait but it was a good chance to meet everyone.

    Sunday: day one of skiing! some mix of ice, slush and everything inbetweeners made things a bit of a challenge but we all wanted to make the most of the sno - it's melting quite quickly so I have no idea what it will be like on Friday. 5cm is expected tonight though we go round in groups of 3-5 with people doing lessons, different skill levels, etc. first day of skiing also meant first night out! It was such a good night! With a little help from Bournmouth we were up on the tables and enjoying the crazily high priced drinks. Hard heads this morning!

    Monday: but more touring today. We discovered the snow park with ramps so lots of photos taken with the end result nein lots of sore bones. Rum bar tonight!
