Last day on the slopes

A travel blog entry by don.vince on Jan 30, 2015

... from Garry’s class to tell me I’m an awesome snowboarder (sometimes praise doesn’t have to be sincere J).

Once down to Angertal, we found Mark, he’d already traded his gear in (cough) wimp (couth)! He very kindly agreed to come up the beginners slope to watch me and my new skills.

I then had a run with some of the ski instructors: they were learning the snowboard so the pace was lovely. I enjoyed that very much, got ...

Snowboarding day 5 - Off Piste!

A travel blog entry by don.vince on Jan 29, 2015

... my thighs hurt.

Very very rewarding day, best day ever, again. I waited for the lads for apres ski for all of 5 minutes, then decided to disco nap. I got on the bus home, fell asleep and took that sleep straight to bed for a solid 5 hour disco nap.

I donned my pimp suit for a couple of hours out with the boys, nothing too strenuous. For the one-for-the-road Mark and I went into the Irish bar, they were kicking out so we did a shot and ...

Snowboarding day 4 - jumps in the park

... protect my noggin. Maybe kneepads too.

I had earmarked today as the day I will return to Bad Gastein for old-time’s sake, to dance on the tables at the Swedish bar and watch the guy singing and playing guitar while downing shots and if I’m really lucky: vomit into the guitar. The route over the mountain started with the T-bar (no sexual partner this time) across some blues (freestyle jumping), getting a bit lost at spaghetti junction followed ...

Snowboarding day 3

A travel blog entry by don.vince on Jan 27, 2015

I know the way today, up the mountain, down the mountain, in the right direction, not just on time for school, early! My reward: I hear beautiful singing & guitar playing; it's Róisín that I met on the bus the other day playing on the radio show. Nice work Róisín! Also to her credit, I asked and was granted the request to play 3 chords (badly) on her guitar, I miss my strings.

Virtually everything Julian teaches us today is "this ...

Snowboarding day 2

A travel blog entry by don.vince on Jan 26, 2015

... Hofgastein, oops.

Back up, back down, right instead of left, met the class for lunch. We had two new classmates, both every bit as awesome as the original cohorts. Today’s lesson was drilling on carving. I found it tough having missed the morning but great fun again. The Knight: putting the sword into the stone on the heels and holding out a lance on the toes. Touching the board (I can’t touch my ...
