Alexander and Phil's Afternoon on the snow

On Friday morning, we skied as a family. It was lovely to ski together - we followed a series on nice gentle runs over to a lake near Schroeken, where we stopped for a coffee, and then skied back to the hotel for lunch. It was busy there, so the boys were outside building ice bridges and things with some other kids, having a great time, while we waited for our lunch.

In the afternoon, Nicole was too sore to continue and Cameron was very tired. They returned their ski gear, and grabbed the sleds and caught the bus back to the place where Klaus and Brigitte work, and the Salober Jet ski lift starts. Phil and Alexander went back up the mountain with a plan to meet there later.

Phil and Alexander then skied all afternoon.. They had a great time together! Alexander is getting quite proficient, and there was lots of skiing off the tracks, through the deep snow, down the moguls, over jumps, along tracks in the bush...

We then all met together to say a sad farewell to our wonderful hosts, with a promise that we would be back again....

Of course, Nicole took her knitting along, and managed to finish the second sock she has been working on.....that will appear later in the week on "Nicole's Needles Blog"
