Hello All,

James kindly updated the blog for me while i was working yesterday with my draft i left on the desktop for him, it probably needed some editing but im sure it'll suffice. Unfortunately i had the camera so he couldn't upload the photos and videos we've snapped over the last week or so, so this is a minor update to provide you with a bit more entertainment, i haven't done much or any video blogging before so its a bit random but hopefully the footage serves its purpose.

I would also like to thank all of you who have accumulated 308 hits overall on our blog, i didn't realize we were so interesting, or perhaps your just checking to see that we are still alive, however either way is good.

We are certainly getting more settled in now and hopefully wi-fi at our place will follow, it's only 30 a month for 250gb so im sure we can convince our housemates its a good idea.

To answer some of your questions Nicola, the average temp at the moment is i believe about -5 and -15 at night, the mountain is usually 5 degrees colder and the top of the mountain (2637m) is about -10 to -20 depending on wind. The longest run is 8km however thats more of a cross country track called "ski out" which takes you from the back of the mountain to the base lodge around the side instead of catching the chairlifts back over the top to the front. James and i were intelligent enough to ignore the sign "ski out" and spent an hour on a very flat run. However the average run from top to bottom on the front side would be between 10-30mins depending on how fast you go, there are two chairlifts that are about 1.5km long to get to the top, or a 3km Gondola.

Any other questions you have about anything just comment and i'll try answer them on here, saves me writing emails; such outdated technology.

Until next time!

Update: Sorry but the videos take ages to upload so i will do it next time!
