Last night it was snowing for a while so we went to bed and set the alarms for early (I thought 6am but Ali had set hers for 5:30am as she knew that she takes ages to get out). So really early she dragged herself to the window says there was loads of snow but maybe we should go back to sleep. I had a look and told her not to be silly. So it was breakfast, snowboard gear on and out the door. There was a good 4 inches of fresh powder and it was still snowing!
Over to the golf course and we tried the slope we had found on our walk, it was slightly hidden so we hadn't noticed it before. With all the powder it wasn't quite as steep as we would have liked so it was on to another slope. When Ali had come over before Christmas she had found it too steep. With about 6 inches of fresh powder it was perfect. It was hard work walking though, my calves were trying to cramp all the time!
Oddly enough we were the only ones there so it was fresh tracks for us. As the slope got tracked out we headed over to another slope and had a go on a kicker that had been build by kids sledging the other day. Great fun!
As time was getting on it was back to the longer slope for a couple more runs before rushing home, pushing a car out of a side road as we passed. Ali changed into running gear - biking would be slow going with all the cars struggling - and headed off to work.
It's now snowing again so it might be night boarding later!
