    ... very friendly. We had never seen ski jumps before, and this resort had a set of three, including the massive competition size one. Incredible! We checked in no worries, spent the late afternoon planning the next two days and the grabbed a quick dinner at the hotel's riverside restaurant. I had stewed reindeer. Tick!

After we pulled up at an old school in the middle of nowhere that the tour company uses as a sort of base camp, we had to climb a hill in very, very rocky terrain, which did my ankles no favours.
