Time to leave

Had a great week in val thorens. Weather gave a lot of fresh snow but also bad visibility. But it was alright and better than no snow! Now it's time to pack and clean up and return. I'll have photos later.:)

val thorens

Had a bad day yesterday but skiing went well. Went to bed early last night and slept find for the first time in a while. So today i'm feeling better and the place looks fine. This area makes for great skiing but boarding is bit less as there is no powder left. Oh well

We Ski for Wii

Image
I thought the "Family Ski" aka "We Ski" wouldn't come out until the Fall, but it's actually coming out a week from now. :) GameSpot has a load of screenshots, game play videos and articles about Nintendo's latest skiing game for the Wii. Oh and it will be compatible with the Wii Fit's balance board... like it's not hard enough to ski already... ;)

Nintendo Family Ski for the Wii

Just in time for the... Summer, Nintendo will release Family Ski in June. Sounds interesting! I like SSX Blur but it was a bit dated in a first-generation game kinda way. Any trailers yet...?

Vacation Denver 2008

I also uploaded the unedited pictures of our trip to Denver.

Arapahoe basin

Testing the addition of a 15MB AVI video I made with my IXUS 55, last Febuary in Colorado. We visited my good friends Ed and Annette. They took all around the ski resorts there, ending in the Arapahoe basin. Here is a video from the "peak".

Petra collected all the (150+) pictures we took during our ski/snowboard trip to Ed and Annette and put them on smugmug. For privacy reasons, the gallery is protected. Sorry.

Breckenridge Weather Forecast

An accidental weather check for the Colorado region where we'll be going skiing and boarding in 2 weeks (Breckenridge), will have a winter storm today! -13 degrees and upto 12" of snow by this weekend. Wooosh! 30 cm of fresh powder... Somebody stop me!
10 day forecast brings more snow too! :bounce:

Chalet Les Crosets in Les Portes du Soleil

Image
Don't ask how, but I just found a lovely chalet in Les Crosets, right on the slopes, for 10-12 people. While we always went to Morgins, the daily trip out of the little valley there - 1.5 hrs each day - was a bit much. Especially boarders have it rough the first couple of days due to the flat areas. Anyway, les Crosets always seemed ideal as it provides easy access to many sides as well as good food. So I thought I'd blog it and remember it. :) Now if only I knew 10 good friends who I could ask to come along...
