Deb had us up really early this morning with tea and peanut butter toast for Al and cheese & bovril toast for Bron, then she hurried us to get kitted up and into the snow room to put on our boots and grab our skis. We were on the Eagle before 8 and as we got off the lift at the top the marshals opened the runs into Castle terrain park and we were the irst ones down Scotty's run, onto Ruined Castle lift and first down our favorite run.

We did the Ruined Castle run at least a half a dozen times, taking movies of each other and playing on the perfectly groomed slope. As the slope got busier, we did Father Fosters black slope a few times and also skied (slowly) over lots of the jumps. Shaun and his skiing mates would love these jumps.

When we got tired of these runs we did Scotty's, Race Course and Sundown a few times and then, contrary to what the girls wanted, did some cross country across 7 or 8 runs, 2 lifts and through some trees to a restaurant at the bottom of one of the runs on the banks of the lake. We hadn't visited this restaurant before & wanted some gluwein and a snack, but no luck, so Al was in serious trouble. We took the T-bar, which is one of the longer lifts in the resort, upnto Cloud 9 and had our gluwein & a couple homemade biscuits. It's slightly warmer than yesterday, but there is a breeze blowing that is icy, so the high slopes and lifts are very cold.

We skied cross country back to Scotty's and spent some time on the runs there, Bron & Al went off piste for a long ski all the way to Ruined Castle and then we met at Dicky Knees for another snack and warm drinks. Then we headed back towards home in the Bowl, but branching off for our last couple of runs on a hectic black slope (Exhibition run) and finished off by taking Skyline to Village Run (the slope in front of our pad) down to the ski shop to hand back our rented gear.

After a snack and a couple of essential GnT's we went for a walk around the village & to buy dinner. We ended up at the bottom of the village ANC caught the Gully ski lift back uo to the bowl and home.
