Relaxing in the Alps

 

We had a successful day one of our holiday, although a couple of road bumps. It is a real pain to get the kids organized for skiing, with the rental, the ski school, lift passes etc. They did get a few times down the mountain today and we are hoping for some more runs tomorrow.

I took the girls on the cross-country trails which, in my opinion, are so much better than downhill skiing. The crowds, music, lines, “un-athletic people”, etc. really irritate me. I prefer the quiet and open trails of nordic skiing and really appreciate the workout. We did over 6 kilometers for the first afternoon. I hope to do some more tomorrow.

I forgot how stunningly beautiful the Julian Alps are. It is absolutely gorgeous up here and with so much snow, even more so.
