I'm really not a good skier. I've only been twice, and both times I've managed to be crap. Even though I definitely wont be competing in any Olympic skiing anytime soon, I have to say that this time round I did notice an improvement from last time, and I even managed to make my way down a red run!! (which is pretty hard!) Ok so I fell over loads, let out a few tears and took out a 6 year old on the way down. But overall, I was pretty impressed.
Here's a few pics of the beautiful snowy mountains..
I'll be honest... there were a few times that I'd had enough and threw my poles at Rich because I was sooo frustrated. Everyone that I'd gone skiing with are brilliant skiers, so I was a little left out being the only beginner. If you're considering going skiing for the first time I'd say it's probably a bit more fun if you go with another newbie. Then you can enjoy ski school together and it might make you feel a bit more confident.
We stayed in a gorgeous wooden chalet which really made the holiday seem all Christmassy and cosy! You can stay in hotels, but if you don't mind doing a bit of cooking yourself, I'd definitely recommend staying in a chalet.

Let me know if you've been before and what you thought!
