EASTER HOLIDAY PART 1: RISOUL

Vars-Risoul

The first week of this year’s two week Easter holiday is over. I’ve had a great week in the French Alps, more specifically in Risoul.

The short story of the week is as follows:
The bus picked us up at 23h on Friday 3rd of April. I got food poisoned by something I ate the same day and puked three times during the bus ride (9 hours), the first time after 5 minutes of driving. Great start.

The slopes were good, but the snow a bit slushy in the afternoons. We had grouped ourselves in dinner teams and it worked perfectly, good an varied food each day!

Geir got sick after 2 days with high fever and only got four days of skiing, Nina caught his fever the two last days. I sprained my ankle during snow football (which we won by the way) and missed one day of snowboarding. A bit of tape and snowboard boots stabilized the foot enough after the first day.

All in all we were a bit unlucky, but it was still a great trip. I’ve learned to do goofy and 180s properly, but I’m still struggeling with 360s. We’ve done a lot of off piste, amazing fun!

Next up this Easter is the Road trip to Spain!
