We had to head home this afternoon, but during the morning we had the best skiing of all week. Many guests had apparently headed home already, so the slopes were nearly empty – here and there it felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves.

I become a much better skier when I can think about my own skiing only and not about avoiding other people. For this reason I also prefer to ski ahead of the kids (and occasionally slow down to check that they’re still there) now that Adrian and Ingrid both feel confident on skis and know the slopes.
