Wow - what a great trip. I'll post pics here and on Flickr [That's me above]

The trip was fantastic - day one was overcast but we had to stay in Happy Valley anyway. Days two and three were brilliant, sunny days with the whole mountain covered in snow.

Sasha and I got good enough to ski from top to bottom with confidence and the kids progressed fantastically too. Luckily for them the Rock Garden had heaps of snow in it this year and was great fun with many different runs to explore.

One of the highlights for me was filming "Logon" skiing after me at high speed, scooping up snow balls to hurl at my head. Great Stuff!!!

How was the songfest ?

Who has the budgies?

Where is the rat food?

how does that rating system work, roo?

rosiegal said...

Do you mean the thing on roos blog where he has, rate my blog out of 5? If so, its just a poll, like the hamilton V8's poll you showed us you making it.
You go into customise to get the menu for the sidebar, where you click 'poll'.

Yeah the ski trip was great.

MrWoody said...

No, Rosiegal, I figured Roo was referring to a ski level rating from his trip.
Thanks for blogging!
