12 PM

XC Skiing 43:26 [2] 5.57 km (7:48 / km) +169m 6:46 / km

A little hangover buster with Cherry after everyone else had left. We were both suffering but got through it by discussing the events of Saturday night.

2 AM

Walking 20:00 [4] 1.0 km (20:00 / km)

Me and Josh thought it was a brilliant idea to walk back from the bar and I went the wrong way and ended up heading up a horribly steep red run.
10 AM

XC Skiing 1:03:23 [3] 7.4 km (8:34 / km) +292m 7:09 / km

Woke up feeling slightly worse for wear after last nights antics but the weather was brilliant and we set out a little later than planned for the cabin we went to a few days before in the hope it was open. Absolutely brilliant run up to the top even feeling rough had to appreciate how good the views were. And the cafe was open so got to have waffles for lunch.

XC Skiing 1:06:18 [3] 11.5 km (5:46 / km) +98m 5:32 / km

Back down an extended way to take in a few more views and some very steep and scary hills that were insanely quick. according to my watch I got up to just below 80km/h but this seems a little quick.
3 PM

XC Skiing 51:27 [3] 3.78 km (13:37 / km) +215m 10:36 / km

Down to the shop for dinner with Cherry and Myles then back up the hill. Down the blue run again with alot of falling and then back up the hill which was horrendous! Found a run that looked flatter to get back but it had some horrible hills and I hit a bit of a wall and was really struggling near the end.

10 AM

XC Skiing 1:15:28 [4] 11.92 km (6:20 / km) +86m 6:07 / km

XC down the blue run near our house, which meant a lot of falling over, then around the lake in Geilo. Today was a lot flatter and we were working hard on getting the technique right, including getting some tips off an old woman that kept on catching us up on the flat and downhills. Took a short cut across the lake at one point which took us across some extremely narrow little bridges. Met up with Myles and Hong Kongs new XC super star and went for the worlds most expensive pizza.

XC Skiing 1:03:30 [4] 8.5 km (7:28 / km) +110m 7:01 / km

After spending a few hours annoying waitresses and other people eating in Peppes Pizza we went out for an afternoon around the other end of the lake. This was a bit more undulating and had some horribly steep sections that I attempted to push up. Unfortunately there were also some very steep downhill sections that I struggled to stay standing on all the way down. The snow had been falling all day and the tracks were getting a little blocked and makings tougher, came back on the short cut across the lake. Seemed to get the technique a bit more correct by the end.

10 AM

Skiing (Downhill) 1:43:31 [2] 20.0 km (5:11 / km)

Another day of down hill, went to the far side of the resort with Cherry and Myles on the ski bus. Did a while load of blue runs practising parallel turning, and holding some speed with the turns. Then back via the supermarket and a walk back to the lifts, which is brutal in ski boots. Then back over the hill to the cabin for lunch.
2 PM

Skiing (Downhill) 1:48:21 [2] 19.93 km (5:26 / km)

An afternoon on the slopes just over the hill from us, think we covered all of the blues and I managed a couple of short reds. got to the last lift with a, bit of time to spare before closing so managed to fit two more runs in. I was very lucky I didn't fall over though as think I would have missed the last lift. As it happened I managed to just make it. Think I am progressing quite well, getting more confident and linking the turns together.

10 AM

XC Skiing 1:50:00 [4] 15.86 km (6:56 / km) +332m 6:17 / km

Morning ski with Josh and Cherry, the first hour was nearly completely up hill, and it was brutal! Then it all seemed to become a bit easier and and slightly less steep on the last run to the cafe. THAT WASN'T OPEN!!! After this extremely annoying discovery we turned around to head back and found out that the less steep up hill was actually down hill, and we had to head up again. After crossing the summit of the run it was all down hill back towards the start, this meant going fast for a prolonged distance and falling over a good amount, ruining all of the freshly cut tracks.
3 PM

XC Skiing 1:10:00 [4] 10.02 km (6:59 / km) +219m 6:18 / km

Afternoon ski with Josh and Cherry. I am now completely dead. The view was once again very white. Having a break and doing downhill tomorrow.

10 AM

Skiing (Downhill) 2:34:48 [2] 19.71 km (7:51 / km)

The second day of attempting to ride down a hill on two sticks. Started off on a couple of green runs with Cherry trying to teach me how to parallel turn, seemed to be a bit of improvement so we moved on to the big blue slopes on the other side of the hill. Then had to go shopping which involved skiing into the town. And walking back to the lift after which was not to much fun. Back to the cabin via a couple of lifts and a rather undulating track, before attempting the blue slope outside the cabin again, I manage to drop the milk carton which was a ball ache.
2 PM

XC Skiing 1:10:00 [4] 8.02 km (8:44 / km) +156m 7:57 / km

Learning XC with Josh. This is fucking hard work! And I struggled with some of the downhills. Seemed to be getting a little better with the technique and the balance by the end. Going to do a longer one tomorrow.

10 AM

Skiing (Downhill) 2:00:00 [3]

First morning in Geilo and only second time skiing so just stuck to the green to try and get the confidence up. Only a few falls.
2 PM

Skiing (Downhill) 1:58:11 [3] 18.21 km (6:29 / km)

Afternoon and the Australian lift attendant took pitty on me after seeing me massively fail on my first blue run. So on his advise I ditched the poles and practised the green run a few more times doing more snow plough. It has ruined my quads, but managed the blue back to the cabin with only a couple of falls.
