How many coaches does it take to set a slalom course?
(Answers on a post card - or BLOG reply.....please)

FIS course set = tough work.....mentally

A special thanks to all 6 coaches who made last night a real FUN night. It was all set to be a really windy night and after serious snow falls in some parts of the region....

Tulips in Durham yesterday

....it looked like we might even be skiing on snow.

The wind held off and the snow never came to Mt. Silksworth but the skiers did, in their droves, and had a fun time. 

skiers having fun

As well as the skiers there was The Easter Bunny with a sack full of eggs, these were promptly devoured by the coaches and skiers and everyone lived happily ever after.....

.....the end.

Happy Easter to all, see you next week, there may be a Tuesday 4 hr training session so keep an eye on this blog and Facebook.
