Been a while since the last article, but there was no snow down here and the weather has been good - been skating.
Been working on crook grinds and over-crooks - and a whole bunch of combos with them..! Nice!
But the big news this month is my first family holiday in about 10 years!
Mum, Jules, Jo and I spent a week in Courcheval 1300, a traditional village nestled in the valley just below the more purpose-built Courcheval 1650 and 1850.
The accommodation was "cosy" in true french chalet style, but though we had a couple of days of fresh snow at the beginning, hot sunny weather prevailed - and the snow alternated between ice and slush.
Jules was on great form, his skills are awesome and he truely has "No Fear"..!
He bought himself a skull ski mask - perfect for tearing up the slopes... show no mercy!
As the snow conditions were so poor and I didn't want to be Mr.Anti-Social by disappearing to the park each day - we spent a lot of time jibbing, and a lot of time having drinks, and mixing a few gullies in for good effect..!
It was good to see everyone, but it made me itch to get back riding gullies again back in Chamonix - so I'm looking to get back there again with CJ, although I know the snow will be gone...
I'll be reporting in when I'm back...
