The joys of skiing!

Oh, how I am loving living up here in the alps. Mainly because it has given us such a wonderful opportunity to learn how and to practice skiing! Every time John and I go out it seems we improve and sharpen our skills. And the view is always breathtaking! Seriously there is not a better feeling in the world than standing on top of a mountain and gazing down at the valley below or at the mountain ranges in the distance. Memories/images I will never forget are: skiing on sunny days with clear blue skies, the fresh mountain air in your lungs as you race down a hill, the chairlifts that almost don't stop to pick you up, gaining my confidence and realizing that it wasn't as scary as I thought, having John as a patient and encouraging instructor when at times I felt too afraid to go down and would have given up. :)
