Spending the morning on my feet watching Matti and Lena do their "races" at the ski school, then picknicking in the sunshine and going skiing with them again after lunch but before the pm ski schools did their final classes. It is truly amazing how both of them are skiing now, Matti always looking for challenges in the woods, small trails that bend and zig-zag and jumps, and Sandra right on his heels unless we stop her as it seems a bit out of her league. She seems so small but speeds and curves down the slopes without much respect. Such a joy.
Afterwards, they wanted to play in the snow as somebody had started to build an igloo. My, were we tired, we, the grandparents! Sandra came back from her run and I was fee to go out again and I had to kick myself out the door because I knew this was one of my last chances to ski with her classic skis again. My enjoyment from 2 days ago was confirmed, it was a joy to climb up to the Dischma valley which was beautiful but as it was in the shade I felt pretty cold. At a steeper inline, I turned around and skied back down into the last rays of warming sunshine. There, I did another loop at the cross-country ski center and headed back towards home but added another small loop. Totally happy with it and the gorgeous day spent in the sunshine.
Downhill skiing 3:38:00  27.0 km (8:04 / km) +2743m 5:21 / km
Classic x-c skiing 1:39:21  13.11 km (7:35 / km) +146m 7:11 / km
Could borrow Sandra's classic skis with little skins and her shoes and, boy, what a difference and joy this was. Could climb and and ski like its supposed to be. A true enjoyment.
