No injuries to report
It was a shaky start and I almost called it a day on the first morning, but five mornings of skiing later we've really progressed and I've felt quite confident by the time we have left the slope for a late lunch for the last two days.
Skiing can be very expensive but we've saved money everywhere. We bought our ski boots from TK Maxx for £35 and £25. The skis followed months later from Decathlon; they were last season's and reduced to £69. So no ski hire costs have been incurred. Camping here has cost around £26 per night and there's not even the need to buy a ski pass if you're only going to be using the beginner slopes.
We've enjoyed the week so much that we've booked to come back in February.
