We had a bit of a sleep in, and then got ready after breakfast for a fun day on the mountain.

We caught a bus to Surlej which is the town at the bottom of Corvatsch Mountain. There was a small slope which we had a few turns on to get comfortable. Brigitte and I got distracted by an ice castle that was built at the bottom of the slope and didn't get as much practice as the others.

I would have been with more practice but we caught the gondola to the middle ...

Today was Saturday and unfortunately Bart had to go to work, but the rest of us had the morning free. After breakfast Joel walked with Bart to the ski rental store where Bart works to return the sleds we used last night.

Eric was only 5 minutes behind Joel as he had stopped to have a snowball fight with his friends.

Brigitte and I started cooking dinner, while ...

We had an alarm clock set for 7am, but I still woke up earlier than it at 6.30am! wow new record.

We had breakfast with Bart, Brigitte and Eric of homemade bircher muesli with apple and sultanas, was a very hearty breakfast which gave us enough energy for what was to come. We saw Eric head off to school and caught a bus with all our gear just after 8am. I still wore my hiking boots and carried my ski boots in bag unlike everyone else, as I am not very used to ...
