Two days into the trip. Some great skiing and some good kids photos. Very cold here  -20 centigrade, a little cold for a fair weather skier like me, but the kids seemed to love it anyway and are managing fine.

Sadly, on the morning of the 31st, day 2, we heard that Katherine's mother had been taken very seriously ill and as I write this (on the 1st), Katherine is on route back to the UK, along with Benjamin, to be with her mum and encourage her speedy recovery.

For the moment I am staying here with the boys while we see how things develop but as you might imagine, will probably keep the blog updates a little thinner on the ground than otherwise until things are firmly on a happier footing.

However, little boys being as they are still loved their skiing and enjoyed a burger and a hot chocolate at the bar while they recountered stories of big air and massive wipe outs.

The boys are now fast asleep but we are all hoping Katherine's mum makes a very speedy recovery, lots of love to Gaga and get well soon from Jamie and Zach and Brad.

Great photo's guys. The skiing looks great and what more could kids ask for, snow and a burger with daddy!

Our thoughts are with you all and hope that Katherine's mum makes a full and speedy recovery!

Love to all. Notgrove not the same without you.
