I went skiing for a few days earlier this week with work. I’m pretty sure the last time I tried skiing I vowed not to do it again. Unfortunately I forgot that when I signed up to this trip and predictably it was very cold and I fell over a lot. Oh well, at least the spa was fun.

This is where we stayed in Sauze d’Oulx in the Italian Alps.


Perhaps the best thing about skiing is the Chinese word for it – 滑雪 – literally “slippery snow”, which sounds about right.
