Day 9 3rd Dec
Today was similar to the last but what's to come is kick ass and something i'm so excited about ! read on, Promise no moaning !
Morning couldn't come sooner for me not the most comfy bed! OMG 1st sentence…. moan!
I'll start again..
Morning was morning Andreas was being as quiet as he could which was cool and in bitty english he's a cool guy! Did some more sorting out of stock cleaning the bar and tazze's bicheare's and other bar stuff! this was about till 4 ish then chilled, Got a nock on the door bout half 4 ish it was Herman inviting me upstairs to meet Robbin the english bar guy!!!! was nervous a bit as i looked half asleep, sweaty palms and all!
was introduced and he was really friendly real inviting and happy to meet me. We chatted through some stuff about the bar and how it was run and the went on to talk about the hours we'd be working, I mentioned, for the first day if we could both work together so I could get into the swing of how the bar was run as Robbin has done seasons and stretch's here and knows a good majority of the seasonairs, Which is a real great way to make things easier for yourself! a mountain guide came in a Herman got into conversation with him so Robin and I chatted through re stocking, how to help each other out and went onto how busy it gets mid season when music nights on a Tuesday kick off. he asked a few questions bout boarding, how long I've been boarding, what board I've got and it turns out he has the same board! boom ace! I can't stress how sound he was with me and really made me feel so relaxed having no one else really to talk to and converse with all week has been hard and just listening to an english guy talk bout how good the snow AND OFF PISTE is and that there is a great group that go out together on day trips, a Mixture of english, Italian, Sweedish, that jib around the mountain together till its time to get back for work! KIK ASS! Robbin also mentioned about the half price season ski pass I should be able to get with a confirmation letter of me working at the hotel which would be amazing!!! all that crap worrying last night lol! gone! we exchanged numbers so that we can cover one another if needs be and I asked about an Italian sim card and a Internet dongle they (Robbin and his girlfriend, now joined) were like oh yea go down to Verres and get a sim and dongle form Vodafone just down by the chemist! all these things i've been dying to know and in one 30 min conversation I'd possibly got a group in could board with and know where to get myself some internet and met a sound guy to work with all season!
so we've split the week into one night on one night off…..one slight draw back is Robbin works two jobs !!!!!! and cant start his shifts till 6! The Bar opens at 4 each day so I have to cover Robbin until he gets here! just a bit of a bummer coz it means on my days off i have a time limit to be back for just for like two hours!! You have to be off the mountain at 4 anyway as the mountain police come round all the mountain bars and practically escort people off the mountain. just means I need to watch my time if I get a full mountain board pass and it takes two hours to get back form the furthest run from champoluc (found that out today) means realistically the whole week I can only board till 1 or 2 at the latest ! leaving an hour back Bomming it! and an hour to get changed and showered ready for work. I need to find out what time the slopes open!!! After all this I was buzzing came back down to my room and it was like such a weight lifted off my shoulders. Had tea just b4 7 and the staff are all great really friendly fo fo the chef is ace he captivated the whole table with a story of some kind I didn't really have a clue what it was about what I got from it could have been a stagg do or some kind of buffet where someone got drunk before the food was out and couldn't stand up or they were on a boat swaying a lot who knows !
Tomorrow I could go up the mountain not on till 4! Want to explore how to get the cheap season pass ! Gonna have to ask at the reception.
Well thats it for tonight not sure what to do with myself ! guests are in the hotel now so really don't want to be lingering about!
