3 long days of skiing on the one piste that's open in Oslo Winterpark done.
We've had everything from cold and dry weather to snow and rain and + 3 C, but the good people working nights on my ski hill have kept this slope in excellent condition. Looks like we'll have a big dump tomorrow and I would like to see my garden white again - green is so out of fashion. Oslo is a bit weird that way, where I live ( sea level ) it's not much winter now, but 20 minutes away by car ( and 530 height meters ) it's winter wonderland.
On Sunday my ski school director took some of us, including a new colleague, a CSIA level 2 to the trees. Man, can she ski. Very useful to get her views on how we do things over here, and it's interesting to see the difference in technique, among other things the Canadians have a lower stance than we teach. Coverage in the trees left a lot to be desired, and I spent about three hours fixing bases and edges on directors and my brand new school-skies today, good to be on freebies for that. I'll save my 2 pair of new personal skis till coverage gets better. Well worth it though.
Most resorts are open up here now, but we need more snow to get all slopes open.
Tomorrow again, I'll be Happy Skiing!
