|Picturesque Tirol, Austria|
|Ready for Ski School|
We had snow every day. It just kept coming and coming. One day we experienced an actual blizzard, with raging wind and heaps of snow. Tom and I got stuck on the chairlift for over 30 minutes. I must admit, I was a bit scared. Dangling above the ground, being beaten by the fierce wind, totally helpless. I was so relieved when my skis hit the ground that I didn't even mind going down the mountain in the horrible conditions.
What is it about snow that draws kids in? We had snowball fights, built snowmen and made snow angels There was plenty of sledding (or "sledging" or "tobogganing") for all. Even walking through the snow was a thrill for my kids. At the end of the week we were all sad to leave. It was so much fun for all of us. I can't wait to take them skiing again next winter.
What is your favourite winter holiday?
Do you crave the sun or do you head for the snow?
