We've just got back from a fantastic week snowboarding with our English friends Carrie and Simon and Swedes Andreas and David. We hired a little log cabin and have had an action packed week of snowboarding, sledging, 'sauna-challenges' (ruuning outside in the snow after a sauna!) and an eventful ski scooter ride where Daniel crashed and nearly broke my hip!!
Snowboarding seemed a lot easier than last year with a lot less aches and pains but I still think I've got a bit of a way to go to match Daniel's speed and stunts!!
Just a few pictures from our trip....
(Carrie & Simon filmed some movies of us all skiiing and snowboarding so I'll have to fgure out how to put them on here)

Simon, Carrie, Daniel & Andreas
Our top floor 'stuga' - the stairs were a bit lethal for running down during the 'sauna challenge'

All straped onto our boards and ready to go!

A well dererved 'after ski' drink!!

Just admiring the view!

Sunset from the top of the slopes!

I'm so have snow and moutains near by. I don't...well, I have beach+sun, which is an excellent thing as well! We can'r have both things or can?
Last year, I went for the first time to a snow trip. It take me a few days to get used to the snowboard but at the end of the week, the result was good :)
This year I couldn't repeat the trip...:( maybe in 2008

Hi Helen and Daniel, Congratulations on getting married. If I had of know in time I would have come to the Church. Sorry. I saw Daniel a while ago just before he caught the train home.

We'll have to catch up when you have time.
