After the long drive from Laude up to Sierra Nevada this morning, we made it onto the slopes for our first session of skiing this afternoon. It was a glorious day for it, with the sun shining brightly overhead and the pistes in great condition. A fair number of the group had never skied before, and they had a great time learning a new skill together and feeling proud of themselves of not falling over too much. The more experienced skiers joined specialist instructors in small groups to explore the mountain and develop their technique.
After such an early start we were all feeling rather tired afterwards, and we enjoyed a relaxing evening with a nice buffet dinner in the hotel to conserve our energy ready for a full day of skiing tomorrow.
