Our skiing odyssey continued in the 2nd week at Zermatt, with significant improvements made in all of our skills. Oli and Jesse came along well with the very patient Hannah with both of the boys confidently navigating red runs amongst renditions of One Direction from Jesse. Sal and her new facebook friend Nico made some great progress as well, conquering both the top of the mountain and the tricky Gornergrat runs on the other side of the village. For my ...

... 12 so we killed some time in the shops waiting for 12 o'clock to tick over. We fronted up again to be told if we had "Swiss rail passes" we would get a further discount. We were unaware of this and had not brought them with us, so Carolyn and I did the dash back to the hotel for our Swiss rail passes so we got a decent discount in the end.

We sorted our boots out, un-velcro'd our skis and set off for the short walk and long pole to the top of the run. My first mistake of the day was to try to put my skis on without removing the 'cat tracks’, which protect the boots when walking on roads. So cat ...

... now. I tried to give hime a few hints after lunch to make the runs easier, but only with great trepidation, as teaching your own kids may not end well. He did listen and tried out something I said and it worked! He has said that when he is less tired tomorrow he will try it again. I am not going to push it but it should make the week less tiring for him.
After the T-Bars on the glacier JJ wanted a break so we skied down to the gondola station again. Once there JJ ...
